When we drive down Oak Creek Canyon from Flagstaff to Phoenix, we go through Sedona, and always go to Tlaquepaque for lunch. El Rincon will satisfy your craving for some good Mexican food, and the chance to stroll through this unique area.

They carry an all around menu so you shouldn't have a problem picking something. You can seat outside so that makes it more attractive.

My friend and I were greeted and seated immediately. The restaurant was clean and looked like what an authentic Mexican restaurant should look. We were given fresh tortilla chips and we each had our own little bowl of salsa. The shredded beef taco that I had at El Rincon was the very best that I've ever had! And I mean... More

We try to go there at least once a week. They have the best (most potent) margaritas in town. The waitstaff is top notch and the Mexican fare is very good.

We've been to the El Rincon a few times. Love the food and atomosphere. Dog friendly, there are some lovely patio seating with heaters if needed. Loved the Prickly Pear Margaritas!

Nice Mexican atmosphere. Margarita was a little too sweet for my tastes, but ok. The combo plate I ordered came and looked delicious. The beans & rice were very good....first time I had ever had green peas in the rice...that was very different. But, sadly, the cheese enchiladas were tasteless and lacking in sauce which made them dry. The salsa... More

Three of us stopped in after shopping. We had been here before several years earlier and had a nice meal. We ordered a beef burrito, beef chimichanga, and a quesadilla for lunch. The food was good but not as good as our last trip. My chimi was soft – almost seemed baked versus deep fried. The house margaritas were pretty... More
