Rico's American Grill - Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak

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.

"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!"

"Great modern menu in a very comfortable environment. Really enjoyed several breakfasts and dinners here. The team is so friendly and warm - amazing with our two young kids. Michael and Agate were 2 favorites but the entire team was awesome. Thank you for enhancing our stay in Phoenix. Nice to be able to find a great meal for a fair price on vacation! Many thanks!"

"The food was good even though we had to send back a salad with salmon cause the piece of salmon was so small and didn't taste very good. The service was poor at best. The waitress had no personality, barely spoke, and was very inattentive."

"Breakfast buffet was good, fruit was very fresh and pancakes/French toast were very good. The muffins and banana bread were very moist and tasty. Eggs were not great and omelette was undercooked and runny. All-in-all good breakfast buffet, not great."

"The bar menu is good and I strongly recommend the tacos. Great prices at the happy hour. The salad would be good if it was not swimming in the salad dressing. You can get the restaurant menu in the bar which gives some nice options.
Service was very good.
