This restaurant was recommended by my motel staff. I always ask the locals for suggestions. It is tucked into a Spanish styled mall that is easy to miss. But it was soooo good. Try the Blue Corn Chile Rellenos. Best rellenos I've had anywhere. Supposedly won the Tri-state cook-off several years in a row.

Wanted to try prickly pear margaritas so we picked this place to do so. In a word "Bad". It tasted like a powdered mix with bad tequila and all for $11. We anticipated much more. Also the food is bland and average at best. The chips were bland and flavorless as well. The best part for me was the spicy... More

The food was good but not mindblowing. However the margaritas are worth the visit. I understand its in Sedona but even taking that into consideration its a little too expensive for the quality of the food. Would probably go again if I were in the area and wanted Mexican.

While visiting Sedona, AZ, my husband and I decided to try El Rincon. We passed on the combo plates but ordered the house special tamales, guacamole, chips and a margarita. All delicious. The tamales were not soggy nor dry, but just right and very flavorful. Guacamole was excellent and a generous portion. The margaritas were made w/fresh lime juice which... More

The shining point for this restaurant was the customer service. The hostess, server, server assistants and even the wait staff from other tables were all very friendly and accommodating. For dog lovers… this restaurant allows well behaved dogs out in their patio dining area.
