“Always Great Food”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The Argentine Grill has the best food in the Telluride area. The food is always cooked just right. We have enjoyed eating there for both dinner and brunch. It is well worth the 45 minute drive from Telluride. Eamonn's food is always great.

“Best food ever!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

My husband and I live in Telluride and frequently make the drive to Rico for Eamonn's food. Often times when we are traveling and eating out we find ourselves saying the food is not as good as Eamonn's. He makes the best steak we have ever had.

“Fine dining in a casual setting”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

No cloth tablecloths here. A limited wine selection and food menu might cause one to not stop here. We found steak and salmon prepared to our liking and servers who took good care of us.

Outside seating is available and cozy inside tables have a European Gasthaus atmosphere.

Somewhat overpriced, but as the only show in town, it passed the test.

“Fantastic meal!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We ate here recently for our 19th anniversary as we happened to be renting a cabin in Rico. The reviews are all spot on, this chef is amazing! We had the corn bisque as recommended and I have been dying for another bowl of it ever since. My husband had the organic half-chicken and reported it was among the top 3 meals he's ever had. My salmon on couscous was equally fantastic and the caesar salad we shared was equally outstanding. It's the intensity of flavors he achieves which made every bite so mouth-watering. We wanted to return to try the desserts on our last night in town but alas they were booked solid from 5pm on. Be sure to make a reservation
if you're there on a weekend!
