This is the second time we have been to El Rincon and just have to rave about their chimichangas and their margueritas, both house specialties. We don't favor really sweet margueritas and find their margueritas just to our taste. If you prefer something sweeter, try the prickly pear marguerita. The chimis have a Navajo/Hopi flair as they are rolled in... More

We visited Tlaquepaque Village fairly soon after eating a late breakfast so weren't hungry but didn't want to pass up the opportunity to sit on the delightful shaded patio. So we ordered drinks and nibbled on the complimentary chips and really top notch home made salsa; a really nice break during our exploration of Tlaquepaque. The food we saw being... More

Visited El Rincon Restaurant last week and I was impressed as usual. The margaritas are fabulous and the sampler plate I had gave me a taste of everything good on the menu. The ambiance of this place is awesome and very good service. Worth the drive to beautiful Sedona just to see the beautiful red rocks.

The food is authentic in style and flavors. Good meal, best place in on the patio in the evening. Great atmosphere, good service, night time provides a quiet meal.

Unfortunately our dining experiences at Tlaquepaque were not good.We waited 1/2 hr. for a table and the food was average and overpriced. I wouldn't recommend any of the restaurants in this complex(altho we didn't eat at Rene).

This is the first time we have visited this restaurant. We are partial to New Mexican, Mexican food and yes, there is a difference. The food had good taste and service very good with friendly staff. One of the things we liked, was that you could order what you wanted to eat without all the sides. Portions were generous but... More
