Very nice meal with great food and good service. We were traveling and stumbled onto this restaurant tucked into a shopping center. Pleased to see many locals when we entered as we thought it would indicate a good choice. Yep!!

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
