Authentic and delicious!

Mi Rinconcito is currently my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. I find myself craving them all the time because the food is authentic and fantastic. It's a small location on 8th street and if you drive by there too fast you might miss it. We come here at least twice a month and always get... read more

We stopped here for a bite to eat before going to the airport. We chose this place based on Yelp reviews, which misguided us. This is not the best part of town. The inside is not very nice, but it is full service. The menu is cheap. Fajitas were less than our expectations. The guac and chips were good. Super... More

Authentic Mexican food in a great location. it is not a fancy restaurant but the waiters make it perfect. The have great attention to detail, they are always smiling and ready to take your orders. The combination # 2 and tacos al pastor are one of our favorites. Homemade food always hot and delicious.

On a recent visit to Miami, I went to eat at Mi Rinconcito Mexicano. The restaurant is very casual with no frills. However, the food is excellent. Everything was very fresh and pretty healthy for Mexican food. Not a lot of oil used in preparation but a lot of taste. The chicken tacos with the sliced avocado on top were... More

Moved to Miami a few months ago and have been struggling to find a decent Mexican joint. Coming from Chicago where there are taco/burrito shops on every corner, we were amazed to find a lack of authentic Mexican places in Miami. This place is located in Little Havana and was bustling and busy when we went on Friday night. We... More

Food is pretty good. Authentic mexican food family style. Try queso fundido or the burrito with cheese and sauce on top. Prices are not high. They have a small parking place behind the restaurant. There is more parking on 8th street.

Friday night we went to have dinner at our favorite Mexican spot. They never disappoint. Service and food are great. if you arrive to late, you can find yourself waiting for a table and parking. We tend to go around 6PM and it is not to bad.

The worst Cochinita Pibil ever! I'll definitely never go back again. The pork smelled and tasted as if it was rotten or something (it wasn't shredded either),and again the service was totally unacceptable.

This is a very casual small place in Little Havana, if you bnlink you miss it. It's located on the North side of Calls Ocho (SW 8 street) so stay on left side of road. Went with my daughter on a weekday @ 5ish, place was fairly empty. You seat yourself. I don't love the decor, I think it would... More

I visited this restaurant last night and I have to say I was very pleased. Service was good and food was awesome. As an appetizer I ordered the queso fundido and as an entree I ordered the Alambre. It was just amazing. I accompanied my meal with 2 really cold Coronas, or course. After all, it was a Mexican dinner.... More
