The dining room is cozy and charming,. The patio looked nice, but is was a cold evening. The Host was rude. The waiter was not friendly. The service was slow, but we understand they were very busy. Then the food came and is was just OK, but disappointing as heard how good the food was. If they were friendly it... More

Really yummy fajitas! Plenty of food for both of us. The chips and salsa (mild, as well as hot by request) were delicious and plentiful before our meal.

El Rincon has a great location in the Tiaquepaque Village so its a busy place. Unfortunately, the restaurant has a tired beaten look to it. The rugs are dirty, the decor dated. The menu is nothing special. There's no bar for customers to enjoy a drink while waiting for a table. A real disappointment.

The chips were hard, the margaritas were limey and not good, the waiter was rude when we sent them back. I asked before hand if the margaritas were good before I ordered one too. Guess our waiter has different tastes in margaritas than we do.

This is a great little restaurant in the beautiful shopping area of Sedona called Tlaquepaque. The weather was perfect, so we chose to eat outside on their patio. We were looking for something light and tasty, and their salads truly hit the spot. The complementary chips and salsa were very fresh and not overly spicy.Portion size on the salads was... More

Friends recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The Mexican fare was tasty. Each of us ordered different entres and were all happy. The carafe of sangria was good.

Cute little setting, but nothing to write home about. Drinks were strong but not very flavorful and the food was lifeless. One example of that is my taco shell was out of package, not made on-site. I'm sure there are other BETTER Mexican restaurants is Sedona.

We enjoyed sitting on the pet friendly patio. The margaritas we excellent, as was the food. We loved our server, and enjoyed the ambience. One star removed because of the high prices, but we would definitely go back.
