Southwestern & Tex-Mex this is NOT! This is authentic Mexican food. Don't go for the atmosphere - simply not there. Go for the food! The portions are large, the seasonings are spot on. Simply the best, most authentic Mexican food around. The prices are good - not Taco Bell cheap, but not Taco Bell tasteless!

Hands down the best Mexican restaurant in Statesboro. The other guys have lost a lot of quality in the food. These guys have been faithful to the menu and the prices are a little better. You can't get anymore authentic. If you want a fun atmosphere and American style Mexican food, go somewhere else. My favorite dish is hands down... More

If you want to eat real Mexican food, look no further. Their beans, perfection. Creamy, flavorful, rich and seasoned well. Salsa is fresh, pico de gallo even fresher, and the salsa verde hot and fresh. The chips are warm and crispy. The tamale masa melted in my mouth. Looking forward to many visits!

As advertised. If you love hot salsa like I do, this is the place for you. I loved it. They had several different hot salsas, some of which were awesome!!!

My friends and I went for lunch-they have a salad bar for sauces, chips, ect help yourself. The food is fresh and good-the problem may be a place to sit! Many local Mexicans eat there so arriving early is a good idea! I recommend this place for authentic Mexican food!

I've been here for 4 years and I have tried every Mexican place in Statesboro. El Rinc is absolutely my favorite! If you're looking for drinks, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for some amazing authentic Mexican food...first choice every time.

Tops place is by far one of the best Mexican restaurants I have been too. The food is freshly cooked and made to excellence. It is reasonably priced for anybody from a college student to a family order. My favor a the homemade tamales. They are to die for and under $3.00. I recommend this restaurant to any hungry patron...
