This is a very nice restaurant with great food. The menu is quite lengthy giving a diner many choices. The service is fast and friendly.

Good food for a decent lunch value. This restaurant is one that you can expect to have good food, service and decent atmosphere along with the ability to have a business conversation without being overheard by others. Will be back again for the chicken taco and cheese enchilada lunch special for $8.95.

Had not been there in 10 years, however, it was just as good. I had a burrito and my wife shrimp enchiladas. My wife said they were the best she has had in some time and burrito was better then what I typically get out in AZ.

My husband and I stopped here for dinner on our drive from L.A. to Napa. It's not right off the highway, but we went here on the suggestion of some locals who we were chatting with when we stopped in Goleta to have a tire changed on our rental car (don't ask). It was cheap and delicious. I had enchiladas,... More

We dine here from out of town visiting Santa Barbara, and we are used to California traditional authentic Mexican food like great burrito, enchilada, chile verde, el pastor....etc. This is no better than Taco Bell except higher prices and hole in the wall kind of places. This is for "Gringo" who wants fajitas and burrito at higher prices.We should have... More

I've eaten at El Rincon Bohemio a number of times. My wife always gets a typical combination of a taco and enchilada which she always enjoys. I think their combo food is very typical and average. However, what makes this restaurant worth going to are the specialties. If you choose one, skip the salad and opt for the Albondigas soup... More

I've lived in the 'hood for a few months and walked by El Rincon a zillion times, finally Gal Pal and I went there. We got Enchiladas Camerones [shrimp] meals with soft drinks, tipped the really quick and congenial waitress a nice 20% and the whole bill was $30 and change... not bad really... the rice was tender, the refries...
