As other reviewers have stated, this place is not to be missed during a stay in Antigua. I agree with everything they wrote! The reason I'm adding my review is to give better directions as the info left by another reviewer is incorrect. Rincon Tipico is located on Tercera Avenida Sur (3a Avenida Sur). Tercera Avenida is located one block east of the Parque Central and Sur means that it's on Tercera Avenida south of the Parque Central (one block south). The food is simple, homemade and very flavorful. All dishes that are typical to the area. The day I went the options were chicken on the grill (pollo asado), a delicious stew made of shredded beef, chicken, and hen and chicken soup (caldo de pollo). The dishes were accompanied by potato salad, rice, salad, freshly made corn tortillas, and a glass of pineapple water. My husband and I tried all three option of the day which was actually way more food than necessary but we really just wanted to taste everything. Our bill came to Q60, approx. $8. An unbelievably good deal! However, heed the warning of the other reviewers: the place is a magnet for all the locals and expats so either go before or after the lunch rush hour. We went at 1.30 and there were still plenty of people. Also, they only do breakfast and lunch service but no dinner.
