My husband and I discovered this wonderful little place on the internet back in July on an earlier trip to the Island while looking for a good shrimp dinner. We stopped in and had all we could eat shrimp with two sides for $13.99 what a bargain. The shrimp were fresh caught, lightly battered, perfectly fried and just kept coming. I had fried okra and hush puppies. They were not hard and burned or over battered like most places you go. No, these were perfection. Lightly battered a d fried till done but not over done. The service was fast and friendly.

We returned again in October to the very same wonder kind friendly service. The food was the same as before, Fantastic,Wonderfully Delicious!!! We had the all you can eat shrimp on Monday. On Wednesday we had the Mexican food, truly great. I enjoyed a Fijita plate, tender marinated beef with bell peppers and onions covered a third of my plater, fried beans and rice were on the rest. I had 5 fresh made corn tortillas wrapped in foil. What a feast and only $6.99. We went back for one more round of shrimp on Friday evening before leaving Saturday morning. It had stormed and the power went off. My husband tried the door and the young nephew who was working said they hoped to reopen soon if power came on. He asked us to come back in about 20 minutes either way. We drove a bit and power came on so we drove back. It went off again. However, this wonderful young man had prepared us some Shrimp and coleslaw and other items as a gift and thanked us for being loyal customers. That is just unheard of by most other places. Rincon Veracruzano is A #1 Place to Eat in my book.

This is a small family owned and operated restaurant but the food is wonderful and the family is very nice and eager to please and welcome you. We truly enjoyed their food and will continue to for as long as we go back to visit.

Went here for lunch today. It looks a little on the rough side but that is no indication of what the food is like. The fish is really good tasting and fresh and a very reasonable price. It is worth a stop if you like fish.

Stopped here today to try out their all you can eat fish and shrimp. This is sea bass they get locally (not imported talapia crap). Started off with blackened fish and shrimp. Was very good. Then tried the fried, and it was lightly coated. Again very good. Then went with grilled. It was good, but not great. Finished off with another plate of fried. Next time will save a couple bucks and eat only the fried.

This is a small family run place. Service was great. Our server was very attentive and would bring our next plate when we finished the previous one.
