Staff is excellent, attentive, friendly. We both had arrechera steak with a mushroom cheese sauce, baked potato, and veggies. Very flavorful. For lunch the nect day we had chicken enchiladas that were served with fresh lettuce, tomato, cream and the house special red sauce. They were great snd the serving sizes are huge.

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch while we were in town for the Sunday Tonala Market. It is located just several blocks away. This restaurant serves good Mexican food in a garden setting with attentive service. It hit the spot and was the fuel we needed to head back to the Tonala market afterwards for some more shopping.

Rincon del Sol is just a few blocks from the Hacienda del Sol Hotel and in the middle of everything. The food is great and the margaritas fabulous. The typical Mexican dishes are superb,while the service fast and efficient. We had comida and returned latter that evening for drinks.

Every February, I travel to Tlaquepaque for EnArt. Am always in Tonala for Thursday market day and I so look forward to coming back to El Rincon del Sol each year. The food is always absolutely delicious, the margaritas are authentic and the owner is very personable and welcoming. Look forward to next year's visit!!

And good margritas and cold cerveza to boot! We have been going here for going on 15 years and it has always been consistent. Location about two blocks from the main plaza and public parking nearby makes it conveinent to walk to.
