Nice place on a very hot day in DC. Recommend the Nachos and burritos. They also served Spanish food which look good but we did not order. When we visited, we were the only two customers for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. We had great service and good food.

The Appetizers were great, especial the Spanish Chorizo, and the entrees were ok. Large and filling, very tradition. Enjoy bottle beer for drinks. The waitress... More

No matter what our destination is in Washington, DC, dinner is always at El Rincón Español. The service is professional and friendly and their paella is even better than what we have found in Madrid.
