Really great food

Most of menu is authentic Mexican with just a few add ons like the Hawaiin tortas. (Hotdogs ham cheese and pineapple). Byob keeps the price very reasonable. Molcajeta is fantastic! Hot is super hot, you'll be sweating . horchata is a welcome cool down. Very nice wait staff.

No frills Mexican fare. Good pricing and a definitely not a Tex-Mex franchise type experience. Small, gets crowded early on Friday/Sat night. Service is spotty but food is worth the wait. Big feature is BYOB.

Chips and salsa brought to table were delicious. If you want a refill, it's only a dollar. We had steak burritos that were delicious. My only criticism is that they had too much rice in them and not enough steak. Other than that, yummy! I will definitely return.

Our meal was fantastic. Spicy habanero sauce worth being called hot with flavor and character. Chicken burrito was yummy. We will be back. #HazelandAshOrganics

We like to eat dinner here. It is close to home and is a homey kind of place, some might say homely, but we actually have come to love the feel. We enjoy the food. Every place has its own style guac and we like the kind served here. We also always bring a bottle of wine to add to... More

At 7pm on a Saturday night, we smiled as we entered this small, charming restaurant with its colorful walls and artwork. Had friendly service and a normal wait time for delicious made-to-order entrées. While we waited, enjoyed wonderful chunky style guacamole. Two of us shared the amazing Molcajete and two others got the Burrito Illegal, one with red and one... More

Really fresh mexican food with a varied menu. Have had the salsa for starters which was nice and spicy. Also liked the tacos, faquitas, taco salad.

Usually I've ordered take out with my husband. We love Mexican food and Rincon Tarasco used to be a dependable place. The past year it's changed dramatically! Ordered a steak quesadilla and when we got home, it was only cheese and no salsa or sour cream to dip in. They have been consistently getting things wrong or forgetting something altogether... More

It's really good. The burrito illegal is amazing. Can feed 2 people for $11 no problem. It is not that impressive inside but it's really not that kind of restaurant. Just a place to go get some really good well priced Mexican food. The owner is also a very nice guy.

Don't go there if you expect to be served promptly. They make everything to order. Some dishes take longer than others. It will take a while. Relax and enjoy the chips. It's a restaurant, I won't say the chips are home made, They make them there. Not to be missed. Try the molcajete. It could serve 2, perhaps 3, if... More
