Nothing to write home about. Like everything in Aspen it is expensive. Decent patio dining but the food was uninteresting.

we had young kids with us and the staff were very happy to help get high chair and rearrange tables. Food was served fast, staff were efficient and it was not expensive. Been here many times, never been disappointed

How hard is it to mess up a good Mexican meal? Well for El Rincon it's pretty natural. Walk in, seated quickly- awesome. We're hungry. Just getting water? After chips, approximately 10 minutes. I'm not making this up people. More time to even get beers!...More

Had lunch here today. The skirt steak, side of grilled corn, potato taquitos, and 'caprese' salad were all delicious. Enjoyed the basil mojito as well. The manager, Aidan, was wonderful making many suggestions on what to order. Loved everything. We will be back for sure.

Cantina is a lively Mexican restaurant serving traditional and TexMex food in the Aspen area. Our menu offers everything from enchiladas, carnitas and carne asada to ceviche and wings. All of our food is fresh and prepared in-house daily, and we have daily specials that are always a favorite. We also have a fun happy hour atmosphere, with great drink and food specials. One of the most unique things about Cantina is that we serve our own infused tequila, and have the widest selection of tequila in the area. With the largest seating capacity of any restaurant in Aspen and with four distinct rooms, Cantina is a great place to host your event. We host everything from weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, college and employee events, to Superbowl and New Year’s Eve parties. We can accommodate groups up to 334 people, and have a custom-made dance floor with audio/video facilities for you to enjoy. For the sports lovers, we have plenty of HD televisions and a giant HD screen, so we’re always showing the game.
