We love going to El Rincon! Some of our favorites are the Nachos and the Rolled Chicken Quesadillas. The atmosphere is great, especially on the Patio. The staff has always been friendly. We are locals and have decided to try to go to El Rincon once a week! Yup.. its that good!

Food is not great but not bad either and the service was very good. Sat on the patio which is very nice in the evening and with a moderate noise level. Food was reasonable priced as were the drinks. Dinner for two without alcohol should run about $40 plus tip. I have paid more than twice as much in Sedona... More

El Rincon is a typical popular Mexican restaurant. My wife got the blue corn chili rellenos which were excellent. I got the Navajo Pizza which was pretty good. Lots of chips and salsa; everything needed salt. On the evening we were there they had live music in the outside courtyard which was very nice. Reservations are a must. Drinks were... More

Got into Sedona late and visited this restaurant as our first stop. We had the chimichanga which they are known for and the enchiladas. The food was all good. Just nothing above-average. We did have very good service. Loved the salsa.

Great menu- lots of options for all ages. Fast service, good prices and tasty food. We had lunch as a family with three generations highly satisfied with the food and loved the drinks variety which included many child-friendly options too. Great ambience and good location - most enjoyable.

El Rincon has average Mexican food. My husband and I ate lunch on the patio and had a decent meal. My chile relleno combo was enormous in size but lacked "that special something." I think all of the food here in general is a little bit lite on seasonings and salt. Also, if you like hot salsa make sure to... More
