My family has been eating at this restaurant for almost 30 years, so obviously we love it! The people are friendly and the food is always very, very good. Try the chicken enchiladas! 😉

The food here is outstanding and the service is second to none. Luis makes you feel like family which is one of the many reasons we have been going to El Rinconcito for over 20 years! We love it this place.

This a family-run restaurant. It's a great place to go with a colleague for a quiet meal. The service is very nice and the restaurant is filled with attractive artwork from Mexico. The salsa is fresh and delicious. I love how they serve the totopos...More
