Stop in, and enjoy an atmosphere that is warm and friendly. Fill your stomach with extra-sized portions of Mexican food fixed to your personal spice meter. Cheap prices, quick seating, and beautiful smiling faces to serve you.

I am puzzled by all of the raving reviews. Perhaps it is because I travel a lot and have eaten in many Mexican restaurants all over the country. As mentioned, the restaurant can be difficult to find.

We love this place! It is tucked in the corner between the Big Lots and the Mattress sales place. The food is awesome and the portions are huge! Just had lunch and with two diet Pepsi's and two entrees the bill came to $22. We both brought half of our food home to eat at another Time!

Popped in for a quick dinner, very impressed with the ambience and exceptional service. The food was outstanding, some of the best real authentic Mexican food north of the boarder. We asked for hot and the server brought a variety of chilies on the side. Excellent work

The area and number of Mexican restaurants has more than quadrupled, but this original favorite continues to put most of the newer Mexican restaurants in the shade. While some of the portions at some of the other places are shrinking, we started coming back because El Rincon is consistent in value and taste. Excellent burritos! Also love ordering the cheese...

The food is awesome, there is nothing on the menu to avoid. The service is lighning quick and the prices and margarita's are good. It is a snappy place to each, whether you want to eat and run or linger.

The descore is homey, the food is tasty and the portions enormous. The waitstaff are friendly and accommodating while the prices are very reasonable. Plus the food comes hot and fast. I recommend the white cheese dip which I sometimes also pour on my main meal....yummy!
