This restaurant serves very good Puerto Rican food. The only problem we had was we had no idea what many of the items on the menu were and our waitress didn't speak much English. I did order a Pernil sandwich which was huge and fantastic, My friend had Empanadas, which she enjoyed immensely. At the end we tried to order pina colada ice cream and were given a drink instead. We were told they did not have that flavor, although it was on the menu. Again, I think it was a communication problem. Overall an excellent experience.

Walk in and get food hot and ready! Yellow rice w gandules or salchicha, yuca, sweet plantains, empanadillas, papas de rellenos, pernil, bistec.... Shall I go on? The food is delicious and made fresh daily. Their sandwiches are amazing and about 16 inches long. You can sit down and order at your leisure or walk in and select food already done. Take it to go or sit at a table. They're very accommodating. Staff is friendly. If you're having a celebration they also do catering orders! Prices are very reasonable. It's a must try if you're in the area!

As Holyoke revives its downtown as a place for arts, culture, and community, El Rincon is thriving and leading the way. This cozy spot offers unfailingly delicious and authentic food served by the warm and welcoming staff. When I took a friend who had never had Puerto Rican food before, our waitress helpfully described different dishes and made suggestions about what to try. The pernil (roast pork) is melt-in-your-mouth tender and so flavorful. Try the bolitas de mofongo with mayoketchup - you'll feel like you just came in from a day at the beach. We are so lucky to have El Rincon in the neighborhood!
