Love this restaurant. The atmosphere is delightful and the food is even better. My husband travels all over trying countless chili relleno's El Rincon has so far topped his 12 year list. Good service. Ask for spicy salsa as they serve mild with the chips....More

Best Mexican restaurant in Sedona. Order off the al le carte menu and eat for two. They host small weekly outdoor events like Salsa dancing, when the weather is good.

Good Mexican food, great ambiance, good margaritas. Probably more expensive than it would be if it weren't at Tlaquepaque, but it's not outrageous. Fun place to eat. They should warn you though that the sopapillas are the size of a dinner plate!

More than once, we've driven this Sedona just to have fabulous Mexican food at El Rincon! Tonight was spectacular again. Delicious blue corn covered chile rellenos, and machaca tacos! Entrees over the top. For dessert we split a sopapilla. Perfect!
