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!

5 pm arrival...happy hour😀😀... margarita and beer specials. Great way to start. Chips and salsa as expected. Salsa a little spicy but not overdone. Two dinners...chimichanga...best in area. Steak dinner and chicken enchiladas at 13.99. Both very good. Rice, beans part of offering. Large portions. We have tried many other Mexican restaurants in area but liked this one the most.

Thank latz002
