The service was polite and helpful and the portions of food was good. I had the carne asada and black bean burrito and... More

Coming from Southern California I tend to be overly critical of Mexican restaurants, but El Rincon delivered a quality meal for my family in a very nice setting. Tucked away in a collection of gallery stores just a little south of the "main drag", this was a nice find with quality food. My son enjoyed a chicken quesadilla, I enjoyed... More

in my opinion the food here was much fresher and authentic than its rival up the hill. A bit more rustic but also friendlier and less cheesy!

Living in New Mexico I think I know the cuisine. This is a very good restaurant with excellent service. The salsa's were excellent as were the Chile Relleno. The prices are very reasonable and the quality is good. Highly recommended.

We ate twice at the El Rincon, loved being out on the Patio. The food was plentiful and very tasty, service was good and friendly. The cocktails were pretty good too! Might be an idea to book ahead as it was a bit of a wait when we went.

For the four of us, we ordered: Red Chili Navajo Pizza, Green Chili Chicken Chimichanga, Sweet Corn Tamale, and a Green Chili Enchilada Food: Food was good. The standouts were the pizza and the chimichanga (duh, the restaurants'... More
