I had a Navajo pizza there, it was really quite tasty. There are several unique foods on the menu, plus it's in Telaquepaque Center, so the atmosphere is pretty nice.

You can find an Oasis in Sedona Arizona, Mexican Style at american prices. The service is good the environment is superb, the taste a little bit more than regular for soft tasters (talking about hot chile). You can enjoy of the good service with a touch of spanish- mexican- american elegancy, with not the taste of the autwentic Mexican restaurants... More

Food and atmosphere were great. Service was very good. Enjoyed the respite from the heat for a cold brew and some good Mexican food.

El Rincon is a little more spendy than what I am used to for Mexican food, but it was really good. What do you expect from a touristy area like Sedona? The tamales were exceptional (I tried both kinds). They seem to be known for the chimichangas so we got the machaca. It was really tasty, but smothered in sauce... More

Lived in Arizona for most of my life and El Rincon has always been our favorite place to eat in Sedona. A little more secluded in in its corner of Tlaquepaque, the food and service has never disappointed. The guacamole is the best I've ever had, and have always been pleased by the rest of the items on the menu... More

But that's where it stops short. Stopped by for a margarita and dessert. Margarita was good but the chips and salsa were nothing special, I think the chips came out of a bag, not what you would expect from what is supposed to be a pricey upscale Mexican restaurant. The dessert Chimi was small and nothing special. Not worth returning.... More

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
