We went to El Rincon for a second visit this trip, having been there on last trip 4 yrs ago. Just as good as the last time, food was wonderful, service great, and it is such a nice atmosphere in there. We happened to go on Valentine's Day this year, and they gave each lady a long stem red rose!... More

We read the reviews, couldn't decide, and each of us ordered the Sampler Plate ($19). I had a margarita ($9) and spouse a beer. We ate our meals on the patio next to a huge tree (sycamore?) around which the restaurant was built. Kristen, our server, was friendly and efficient as she brought us complimentary chips and salsa. The entire... More

We hiked in the morning and was looking for some good Mexican food to fill us up. We sat out on the patio & enjoyed margaritas while waiting for our food. Both the house & prickly pear margaritas were refreshing. I would recommend the shredded beef taco & cheese enchilada combo and the blue corn toasted chile rellenos were excellent.

After a morning of hiking, we stopped here for lunch. Our first impression of the hostess almost made us leave, but we decided to stay since we heard the food was good. Although we noticed quite a few empty tables, there was a 30 minute wait. Many customers chose to go elsewhere. The food was pricey but made up for... More

The service was very good, the ambiance is very comfortable and feels like home. Location is good and prices are not that bad. Food was good for me, maybe a little on the salty side but that was my taste buds. portions were large. Overall the staff was very friendly and made accommodations for us very easily.

We had a very late lunch, so didn't face waiting time and were seated immediately. I enjoyed the Blue Corn Rellino -- an unusual variation on the classic Mexican dish. This isn't a cuisine I choose very often, but El Rincon prepared it well and we had an enjoyable lunch.

We loved this place! My husband said it was the best child rellano he had ever had. I had the filet minion fajitas which were excellent! The atmosphere was perfect, we sat on the patio which was brightly decorated with a pleasing Mexican theme. The house margarita was also very good, I highly recommend this place!
