Is a tradition here with my coaching staff. Home town hospitality. Good food. The place is just a local joint with local charm. You are not going to feel like you are in a CHAIN ripoff joint. I'll be there tomorrow morning with my son and my coaching family too!

The place is a dive, for sure. The food and service were not. The lunch special was a chicken (or beef) burrito with rice and charro beans and was delicious. There was a bit too much bacon in the beans (some would say that is a plus). The Iced tea was gratis with the special (less than $8).

There are lots of Mexican restaurants around, and this one doesn't really stand out for any particular reason. However it's good, and Tuesday night is half-price enchiladas night.

Great food at really good prices,best salsa around,also great ice tea.Live music on the weekends,weekend nights are pretty busy.We ordered fajitas for two,but it could have fed 4 or more.Parking lot is mostly gravel,but plenty. Don't pass this place up,this is good food like your grandmother use to make.

Remember how your mother would tell you to not judge a book by its cover? That's El Rincon. If you go in for the first time you might think this isn't for me. Try it, you'll LOVE it! I've never had a bad meal in the 20 years I have been eating there.

We enjoyed our margaritas and chips and salsa while listening to live music on a Friday night. Great family night.

Our family has been going to El Rincon since they first opened many years ago. We especially enjoy their happy hour from 4 to 6 pm week days, along with their delicious beef and chicken fajitas. This family friendly restaurant is also very affordable. See you there!
