Read the prior reviews about Rincon and expected more. It is a strip mall location with order at the counter service. The menu is loaded for fast food and their dinner platters are limited. I didn't see any dishes which would show off Mexican cuisine but I had a craving for rellenos and they were good not great. They had... More

Awesome authentic Mexican food. We've patronized this restaurant since they opened. We consider it comparable to our #1 Mexican food joint that we discovered as a hole in the wall in San Francisco.

We stopped by this restaurant on our way to a Sacramento Kings game on a last minute whim. What a delight. The place was packed, the ambiance was very cool and the food was fantastic. There was a girl behind the counter actually frying tortilla chips. This was a first for me. We ordered the chicken tacos, a tostada and... More

Located near the Mexican Embassy in Sacramento, this place serves awesome burritos, tacos, and other traditional choices. Service is prompt, the food hot, and very tasty. Breakfast, lunch or dinner... you will find a selection that just hits the spot.

it looks like everything is home made; the crispy taco shell is fried right before your eyes. The meats were a little greasy the last time we were here, but that could have been from sitting a while or the weekend cook. Generally pretty good. The salsa bar has lots of options, too.

Love this place. We moved from So. Cal where there is more authentic Mexican places to choose from. Now that we found Rincon, we are happy to report an authentic Mexican taqueria in Nor Cal! They have an all you can eat chips and salsa bar and the food is beyond delicious! You have to go!

When we lived in Natomas, we ate here really frequently, and now we make special trips to return - except my husband who works near the Sierra College location and gets to eat there more often! Really amazing hard-shell steak tacos, burritos of all kinds, and free refills on horchata! Love this place.

Food is okay and fairly priced; however the service is slow, take out orders are not correct, and place is dirty. After trying the place out a few times, I won't be going back.
