This restaurant has been our favorite Mexican Restaurant for a long time. We recently visited expecting the usual good food and good service. We were very disappointed! We arrived as most of the lunch crowd was leaving around 2:30pm on Sunday. I believe there may have been only one other table occupied at the time. We quickly received our menus... More

I have been to Guadalajara,Mexico. I also grew up in a neighborhood in Chicago with many little family owned Hispanic restaurants. Rincon brings me back to those restaurants. The atmosphere, the food, and the service are all wonderful. This is not your fancy, Americanized type place. I love eating there. And not only do you get more then enough food,... More

I have been eating at this Rincon ever since it opened years ago. The food is very good and the service is excellent. If I have ever had to wait to get seated it was no longer than 5 minutes.

This is one of our go-to spots. My wife always get the fajitas and the carnitas are my first choice. Plenty of food, good salsa, quick, comfortable, inexpensive!

Wonderful Mexican restaurant near Palomar and Man of War. My favorite is the sauted shrimp with rice and salad.....I can actually eat the whole plate of food and be on my diet. Of course, the froze margaritas are great also!!!!

I have eaten at Rincon a number of times and I have to say - this is truly a FANTASTIC place to eat. The salsa is delicious. Their appetizers are creative and addictive... and the atmosphere couldn't be more Mexican. Very impressive for Kentucky! :) The real winner, though is their food. I love this place and I recommend it... More

We had dinner at Rincon this evening and had a good time, but the environment was much too loud and distracting. The food was good (I had the steak fajita quesadilla), and the service was good, but the place could really use some sound insulation in the ceiling or something. The room is big and spacious, but it sounds like... More

I eat here often at lunch time. Every single time I arrive the employees are all huddled in a booth with their backs to me, I have to cough to get there attention. It's sp annoying the only reason I keep coming back to the Harrodsburg Road location is because it's close to the house and the salsa is great.

Atmosphere was very nice. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. The chips and Salsa were fresh and very tasty. The Rincon dip was delicious. The chimi was filled with tender and tasty roast beef and covered in wonderful cheese sauce. Even the rice was great. I chose black beans instead of refried beans...they were really good. My husband chose the... More

Rincon's always has great food and good value for your money. The staff is very friendly and are quick to help in anything that you need. Free chips and salsa and the food is quickly delivered to your table. I have always enjoyed Rincon and consider it one of my regular places to eat.
