El Rincon Restaurant could be seen out our window from a horrible excuse for a hotel (comfort inn Yakima). I was going to go there for dinner but was told that it was closed?

When this place was in business it had some of the worst Mexican food in town. Yakima has some of the best Mexican food in the state, so it might have been good food somewhere else, but not here. But, I'm just padding my word count so that I can post the headline about this place having closed - after... More

The place is very small but the food they serve is very good! It's probably one of the best places I have eaten tacos at. Tortillas are served fresh which is sweet!

Very fast and pleasant service. Good meal and beers for the price. Took some food away, as I couldn't finish. I'll go back. Dark inside, but on a hot sunny day I can see that would be welcoming!

My wife and I ate at El Rincon on 10/28/13 for lunch. The salsa was very good with some decent spice, but the chips were not warm or fresh tasting. The host greeted us very nicely and seated us in a nice clean table. I agree with other reviews that the atmosphere is very dark and the buidling has a... More

I have an awesome meal every time I go there. The only downfall is the slow service. So if you are not in a hurry you shouldn't be disappointed.

I always stop at this restaurant when I'm in Yakima. The owner greets me personally on each visit. The food is excellent!

Great food. I asked for very hot on the entree and didn't get it. Extra hot salsa was good. This is over 50 characters, so accept it.

Certainly not a fancy place, but a down-home restaurant in which the owner serves you personally with happy flair. The relatively broad range of food is basic and authentic. Add or subtract Cheese, larger or smaller portions, you name it, you get it. Black beans instead of refried? Just ask. Extra hot salsa? You got it. Outstanding well drinks for... More
