We waited a bit to get a seat outside. Food was a bit pricey and it was a $5 charge to split a meal but the food was good! The margaritas were also good but a tad small for $9.00. The ambiance was great and our weather was perfect. We stopped here after a hike on Bell Rock so we were starving.
Waitstaff was great and there are small shops you can visit if you have a wait.

I can't tell you how many times we've walked by this place. Really. But today changed all that.

A busy Easter Sunday, and we were in Tlaquepaque with our two small dogs. They have a dog-friendly patio, and the wait was 30 minutes.

Once inside and down, our server immediately brought water bowls for the dogs, and got us set up as well.

The food is fresh, flavorful and very well priced. While not "cheap eats", you definitely get what you pay for.

Don't overlook the Nachos con Todo. Every single chip had "stuff", versus those other nachos from other places where half the chips are naked.

PRO TIP: If you're from the Southwest, you likely have a palate for spice. Their default salsa is not spicy at all. Be sure to ask for the good stuff.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at El Rincon. We both got fajitas, which were delicious. And the Margaritas were outstanding (they claim they're the strongest in the area with 3 shots per marg). Service was perfectly fine, although our particular server was a bit odd. If you don't want to wait, I'd recommend you make a reservation ahead of time.
