Some very good food was overshadowed by an extended wait, because the host forgot us, even though we had a buzzer. Once we seat, after two or three couples who came behind us, the salsa was excellent and so was the Blue Corn Crusted Relleno. Unfortunately, it took awhile for the them to arrive. It's too bad because as we... More

Disappointed. This place was recommended by friends who visit here often. I guess we didn't order the dishes they love so much... two of us got the filet mignon fajitas for $21. Our plate arrived nicely plated however with five thin slices of meat. We also ordered shrimp tacos . Tacos were filled with shrimp however shrimp were quite small.... More

Very impressed with the atmosphere and the quality of the food. Coming from Wisconsin we were looking forward to good Mexican food and we found it. The food was fantastic, however, when we ordered dessert, the kitchen was getting backed up and it took forever to get our sopapeas. They comped us the dessert before we could complain, which was...

Sedona gets busy, and we were tired of looking for a restaurant for the seven of us without a long wait. Glad we came to El Rincon. We did have a short wait at 7 pm, but staff was friendly and did their best to seat us quickly. Pretty big menu promising Mexican-Arizona cuisine. Did not disapoint. Servings were generous... More

Friendly staff, good atmosphere, and good food. The nachos are enormous, so beware. The drinks are pricey.

If you're in Sedona, many restaurants available. This one is in Tlaquepaque shopping area. The food was just not good quality. The beef taco was filled with shredded beef, including a wad of fatty grizzly part, and taco shell was stale, and not crispy. The chile relleno was not freshly made. As I entered the restaurant, I could smell the... More

They are known for the prickly pear margarita and chimichangas which were both excellent. Best tamale I've had in a long time. Nice atmosphere. Server was professional.

Atmospheric Mexican restaurant in The Tlaquepaque complex. Probably on the pricey side but serves are generous, the food is beautifully fresh and the service is friendly and efficient.
