“Great atmosphere, good food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I had a girls trip last week and Tlaquepaque was on the list of places to see. We decided to try El Rincon for dinner. We made a reservation for the patio, we were seated right away. One person from our group got their food and the order was wrong but they made sure to put a rush on getting it out to her. They also gave a discount on the bill for the mess up.
We all finished off our plates and had dessert! We ordered drinks, the margarita is good!
We would definitely come back the next time we are in Sedona.

“Service and Food, A+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Enjoyed a nice dinner with excellent service from Sedona (yes that was really her name). Chile rellenos were very tasty, maragaritas went down way to easy. Of course, the ambiance of Tlaquepaque just carries over into El Rincon.

“Very Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have eaten here on two separate trips to Sedona. The latest one was just a week ago in mid June. I was with 3 girlfriends, and we all thought it was good! I had tacos, as did one other. Two of our friends ordered the taco salads, which were very plentiful! Our service was very good, minimum wait time, and good food! I would go back again!

“Good (albeit a bit pricey) Margarita in Sedona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Had their mini sampler and was pleased. Their Margaritas were quite nice though on the pricey side. Nice patio seating area and pleasant staff. Would return.

“Pick something else....and review your bill before you pay!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to us!!!! First I was told I needed resv I made them- we walked into the restaurant (in a Thur night) no one in the restaurant...it was 630pm. Not a good sign! No follow up service when the food came, had to ask for more water ask for more coke. Service was poor! Then the bill...they brought our bill to us but it was wrong- we personally feel like the employees our stealing money from the restaurant! The beverages we ordered were I putted as the tip!!! So not right!!! It took 3 times to get the bill straight and it still wasn't correct. We have up. I hope mgmt reviews the employees and how they are charging customers...it they don't I dare say this restaurant may not be around another year...
