I always make a stop at Rincon Criollo when I am in Cleveland! This is the BEST Puerto Rican food in my opinion. The place is clean, and the service is always great! I only wish they would open up a place in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Since the death of my mother, I have missed authentic Puerto Rican dishes and now I have found a place to take care of this need. The portions are large and very reasonably priced. My favorite is the steak with yellow rice and beans. The appetizers (empanadilla, alcappuria and rellenos are large. Plan to go back soon!

We went into this restaurant with high expectations. We'd heard great things about it. When we ordered, the waitress spoke little English. They were out of plantains which was the main ingredient on all the sandwiches. When we were checking out, we found out they did have beans and rice which were not on the menu and I had wanted...

I had "that taste " for some Latin food and what better place than Rincon where the food is authentic and delicious . It's inexpensive and you can eat in or take out .its in the Gordon Square area and the service is friendly and fast .

So I'm rating the food here mostly...service is typically decent but it's not a big place and it's not very updated inside...but so long as that doesn't bother you, you'll enjoy the scrumptious food. Fried pork chops, potato balls, yellow rice, baked chicken...the list goes on...all awesome! But go early to mid-afternoon!

It was not very expensive and the food was plentiful and good. The boiled meat pies were great. The place does close fairly early at 7 pm

Yeah the menu is pretty authentic but I went there close to the end of their shift (7pm) and the food was not that fresh. Aside from the french fries and the tostones the chicken was pretty dry and warm. Some items on the menu were not available anymore at 6pm. I will go back for sure, but perhaps at... More

Let's start with the good. The food is delicious.. Tastes like homemade caribbean goodness that my mom would whip up. Friday and Saturday brings some specials like bacalao a d green bananas, or stewed goat. The baked chicken is great, the stewed beef is awesome, and the mofongo is delicious. Be sure to try a potato ball, and a empanada... More
