I thought I understood quincho based on a quick description from a friend. However, as I have lived in Argentina longer I have heard the word used to describe various structures. Some easy translations could be pavilion, shed or work room. However the actual construction is made it seems to have a connection to the grill that Argentina is famous for. Either as a place to store your grilling supplies, the room where the grill is located, or the area where the food is consumed that was cooked on the grill they can all be referred to as a quincho.

Apparently those from Paraguay and Uruguay use the word to, but it seems to conjure up a different meaning for them. Please feel free to add to the description of what quincho means to you.
