El Rinconcito was an unexpected surprise as we arrived late in San Miguel and just needed someplace to eat. The food was excellent, very reasonably priced and the hosts very gracious. Our late arrival was not a problem for them and they made us feel very comfortable even though we were the only ones left after closing time. We went back two more times. Highly recommended.

This charming restaurant is tucked into a neighborhood in the San Antonio district. We sat out in the courtyard next to the fountain and were greeted warmly by Miguel and Mercedes. I chose the spinach and shrimp quesedilla, my husband, the chicken mole and our friends chose the tacos. All of us were not disappointed! The food was very tasty! The service was excellent! I recommend this restaurant to people looking for authentic Mexican away from the bustling crowds.

Our favorite "Cheers" kind of restaurant, where after a few visits, Miguel and Mercedes know your name and your favorite food. I personally love the shrimp quesadilla, the bacon-wrapped shrimp, and their chicken with mole. Tell them Dianne sent you.

This small neighborhood restaurant is a surprise waiting to be found. Outdoor dining allows for a view of the food preparation while the indoor rooms offer a special ambiance. The cooks and servers are family and aim to please - and that they did!!
