We ordered two large burritos that, for $7 each, were expensive for what you got. They were stuffed full of rice, beans, cabbage/cilantro mix and choice of meat - the meat potion was meager. There was no... More

The pic shown for this restaurant is NOT accurate. Taqueria el Rinconcito is a trailer, permanently parked next to Zeman's Music on Cascade Street. The address listed is correct, but I am not sure where that photo came from. Those buildings are NOT in Hood River. One of the reviewers said they seated a large crowd? Um, there are a... More

This is a nice family owned restaurant. They serve fresh and delicious food, have a friendly and attentive wait staff, and are open late, They were able to seat our large crowd at a moments notice and at a late hour. We love Mexican food, and this was excellent!

This is the best place to catch a burrito or taco or sopa's. The food is fresh each day and they love making it fresh for you.

Very authentic. If you are looking for american tacos this is not your place. If you really want authentic Mexican food this is the place. The Al Pastor Tacos remind me of tacos I have had in Baja and Mexico City. My Mom & Dad came from Minneapolis for a visit and were blown away. They had never tasted anything... More

I live in Portland, Oregon and have the chance to try many taquerias in the city, but El Rinconsito in Hood River has remained the best choice for great "street food" tacos year after year. A wonderful family-run trailer. This is NOT an americanized mexican dining experience. No gloppy beans and dry seasoned rice. No Mariachi band blaring in your... More
