Food here was just ok. They add way to much cumin to the beef to make it taste "spicy", instead of using a great variety of peppers and other Mexican spices to bring out the great Mexican food flavors. The service wasn't very good. I waited for 10 minutes as I watched our waitress on Facebook on her phone. I... More

All I can say is get the Chile Relleno. Whatever they do to their green chile sauce is awesome. You won't be disappointed if they are consistent.

One of my favorite stops in Sedona for Mexican food. Fresh guacamole is yummy. We always have their Margaritas which are well made. Last time we shared the Mexican pizza. A small was perfect for 2 to share with the guacamole. Worth the wait to sit on the patio. The service is outstanding.

The food was great, but it was a little pricey for Mexican food. The server was courteous and efficient and we all got our meals fast.

My wife claims this is the best salsa/chips she has ever had, and was asking the waiter if they sold it in jars, or if she could at least get the recipe. Our dinner was great, the service was very personable and attentive. Along with Oak Creek Brewery and Grill this is another place we discovered which will garner MOST... More

We live in Sedona and took our out of town visitors to El Rinion. This was the first time we had been there. The food was not notable except for the guacamole which was very good. Our service was good. The atmosphere was very pleasant. There was live flamenco music in the courtyard which was very nice.

Lovely setting in tlaquepaque. Had lunch on the outdoor patio. It's an older establishment but in fine shape. Good food. Nice selection on the menu.

Best food while in Sedona. We loved everything! Great vegetarian choices and margaritas. Also, there was live music outside that made the experience even more special.
