Rico’s American Grill brings high-quality, farm-to-table cuisine at an affordable price. Nothing about Rico's is complicated; not the parking, not the prices and definitely not the menu.


Here, it's all about straightforward, locally sourced ingredients. You'll find back-to-basics meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a neighborhood setting. The drink line-up at Rico's is as friendly as the staff. We have daily Happy Hour Specials including The Rico's signature Rough Riders brew, HD TVs for sports viewing. The bar program also includes a wide selection of tequila and margaritas.
Rico's, which is located adjacent to the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak, is named after a now-defunct 1900s Mercury mine. The restaurant pays tribute to the community's mining history with its mining artifacts and decorum.

Good People. Good food. Good drinks.

We had both dinner and breakfast at Rico’s. Food was average and service was well below average. Took more than 20 minutes just to get glasses of water after asking multiple times.

Our server Dave was really great! He was very funny and professional. We really enjoyed our experience with Dave.

The food was more on the ok side. The artichoke and spinach dip was very bland as was the breading on the calamari.

The Ruben was toasted perfectly, the burger was cooked to perfection, and the kids enjoyed their food as well.

The food was amazing. Definitely great for not only staying at the resort but also for a nice place to stop in and dine. The service is ok kind of slow and not real personable servers.

Hands down the server my group of 6 has was awesome. Even though we had reservations we had to wait for 10 minutes for our table. We ordered right away and apps came out pretty quickly. Spinach artichoke dip was amazing and how the prepare the pits to go with made the dish. Calamari was average. The food over all was average for the price of the dishes which is where the 3 star review comes in.

The potatoes with the spareribs were horrible they tasted like cleaning solution!! My daughter ordered the scallops and left hungry, such a small portion of food. They should really serve bread with the meal at this price level!!

We've eaten here before and had good experiences, but this time there was extremely long wait for food; two orders were "forgotten to be put in" and brought to the table after everyone else was done eating. Desserts took so long that our 5 year old fell asleep waiting. Hoping this was just a really "off " night for the restaurant.

The short ribs were disgusting. The meat was extremely tough (had a hard time cutting through it with a knife). The sauce was even worse. Ordered a salad to go instead.

I have several things to comment on regarding our visit:
#1 - they claim to be a farm-to-Table and locally sourced restaurant... Nothing we were served seemed fresh or was listed as local on the menu and nowhere do they publish what local farms they use.

#2 - they have a very nice seasonal Fall themed menu posted on Open Table. The menu looked good which is why we chose to go here. When we got there, we were surprised to find out that menu isn't actually what they're serving. The menu online had Fall foods like Sweet Potato Pumpkin Soup and a Prosciutto Arugula flatbread listed... instead, we were given a menu that had things like Gazpacho and Fish Tacos on it... It's the end of October so why if they're so seasonal are they serving summer food?

#3 the food was not good. The salmon was overlooked, the asparagus that came with it was so thick it had zero flavor and the mashed potatoes had so much butter in them that they had a pool of butter surrounding them on my plate. The mushroom flatbread that we ordered was fine. Nothing to rave about but certainly should have been better considering usually ingredients are top quality at a farm-to-table restaurant.

The resort here is great but this restaurant (which was our only option on property for dinner) was NOT. I don't recommend this place. It's not seasonal, fresh, local or delicious. We should have just eaten at the sports bar across the street.

Not as good of an experience as I expected. Food was marginal and service was "it may take a while"...it wasn't even busy

We come every Wednesday evening for burgers and usually one other day each week and we leave in the area. It is always great! This night they were off. The hostess kept apologizing for their lack of service, etc. Thanks.

I guess the best part of the location were the employees. They were all great.

The food is usually great here but this past experience was not inviting. Mainly due to the customer service. The service did not seem like they wanted to be there or enjoy their job.

Although we mentioned that we were in a hurry...we had a little over an hour...the waitress did not inform us that the kitchen was backed up and rarely visited our table. Our food came within 15 minutes of when we needed to leave for the airport. The food was very good but, having to choke it down left us feeling like we were being taken advantage of. I would have gladly had the waitress be honest with us and point us to something that could be prepared quickly...I thought a burger would fit that requirement....such a upsetting experience. We have visited the Hilton at Squaw Peak many times over the years and now I remember why we don't eat at Rico's!
