I would have given a better rating, however the hostess was very rude when we came in for lunch, we walked in 5 minutes before lunch and she had an attitude when we asked if we could sit inside by the entrance until they were ready. So as much as I always wanted to patronize this restaurant I won't.

The food was very good. We happened to go on a night they had entertainment. We had dinner on the patio and were able to hear the music. It really enhanced our dining experience. Since we did have a rather large lunch that day were did not order large dinner items nor did we order cocktails. Thus you could say... More

Very disappointed in food. The pizza on sopapilla was mushy, probably because of the beans. The chicken fajita was definitely not sizzling - the plate was full of mushy peppers and onions, obviously not done in cast iron, and the chicken was so dry it seemed like it was pre-cooked pieces that were just reheated (and not very hot either),...

This is one of my favorite restuarants in Sedona. Thesetting in Tlaquepaque is enchanting, especially at night when all the lights are on. Order the sweet corn tamales.

Situated inside Tlaquepaque, it really has a nice southwest/Mexican feel to it. The service was very good and the food was delicious.

Let me first off say Jonathan is the best waiter here by far he is very funny and always on top of things. The food we good but make sure your kids if you have any get what they know they like. I would recommend staying for dessert and getting a sopapilla.

We spend our summers in the Village of Oak Creek and always make it a point to get to El Rincon and Tlaquepaque. We love the patio at El Rincon, very relaxed atmosphere. Chile relleno is one of their specialties and, as usual, it lived up to its billing. We also had the beef chimi and it was very good!... More
