This used to be one of the nicest and good places to eat in town, but quality have decayed, slow service, the menu is still the same, you can order typical regional food or some beef, tortilla soup, the most basic and loveless salads, the only thing that remains for quality in this place is the name. Overpriced for what... More

The atmosphere is nice. The service is great. The food is good. The ribeye steak was a little tough. The steak fajitas were ok. The chicken enchilada was wonderful, although not an enchilada. Would not allow my service dog inside, so we ate on the patio.

I bet you will write a positive review if you go to Rincon de Agulilla to have breakfast or lunch when in Uruapan. A lot of local and traditional dishes are served here, great quality, and great taste.

Family owned Mexican restaurant that serves traditional dishes from the area with organic and fresh ingredients that kept me wanting more! The salsa and guacamole been home made is well worth the visit in itself. Customer service was fantastic and friendly. Highly recommended.

A local friend recommended this restaurant for breakfast and in our first visit the hall experience was outstanding. There is a parking lot for clients, the service was great, fast and the dishes very traditional and delicious. I ordered cecina with chile guajillo and it was one of the greatest dishes I´ve ever had. The place is very ordinary but... More

During several visits to Uruapan I have not found a lot of restaurants. This one is worth visiting for lunch or dinner. Located on a corner a few blocks out of the center of town it is very popular with locals for comida and a good place for dinner when it is not so crowded. Extensive menu including steaks. Wine...

Having not been to Uruapan in more than 16 years, this restaurant really gave us a taste of Mexico! Went here with family and the food was amazing. They serve some delicious nixtamal tortillas with queso fresco. The enchiladas con cecina and salsas were incredible. Next time we're there we definitely want to try the Conejo!

Queso fundido con tocino o chorizo. Arracheras y cortes. All the great traditional Mexican dishes are available here. Have eaten here at least 8 times and is always outstanding. a late breakfast or early lunch, even a business meeting late in the afternoon is great. Full bar, great service and food is not to be missed.

The food, service, overall quality is excellent at this restaurant. I have tasted a good bit of beef in my lifetime, and the quality at this restaurant is VERY good. Please stop in. And while you are here, please try the salsa verde. If adventure is what you like, try the red salsa also. I find the chips to be... More
