Great food and wonderful friendly service.
My wife and I had an intimate dinner for two and loved it.
I would strongly recommend making time for a meal at El Rincon on any trip to Sedona.

El Rincon was one of the two eating places that we tried while visiting Sedona. Coming highly recommended by our Sedona hosts, this place did not disappoint at all. Nestled right next to a little river in the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, El Rincon is a full service Mexican restaurant offering traditional Mexican cuisine with local Navajo Indian influences. I went with their machaca beef tacos and they were one of the best shredded beef tacos I've ever eaten. Our hosts were right about this place being good because everyone ate their plates clean. After your meal, be sure to check out the cute little shops in the complex. Stores are filled with gifts/music CD's made from local artists.

I could not have been less pleased with the welcome my family and friends received upon our visit to this restaurant. Apparently we committed the cardinal sin of not having a reservation even though the restaurant was nearly empty. We were very pleasant and asked if any seating was available. We were told that it would be no problem even though an older woman with short gray hair seemed to have an issue. After being seated, we continued to receive attitude, especially from the older gray haired woman. We opted to leave after ordering drinks. For a business that is reliant upon the good will of its customers, this one seems not to give two hoots! We took our $125 worth of business to the competition. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant and I will be telling my many friends who live in the area about my experience.

My husband and I stopped here for a quiet lunch. We sat on the patio and enjoyed great Mexican food. The service is very good and the prices are reasonable. El Rincon will be on our list the next time we visit Sedona.

Excellent Mexican food and friendly service make this a favorite place to dine in Tlaquepaque. The atmosphere is warm and festive, and the outdoor patio is lovely on a summer evening.

As a traveler from Alaska, and a huge lover of Mexican food, I was very excited to try this restaurant that has won awards over the past 30 years. As we sat down, our waitress quickly brought us our salsa - salsa that was obviously poured from a jar. I ordered fajitas and my husband ordered a quesadilla. Both are so hard to mess up that it is no wonder I felt like I was in the twilight zone when I received my food. The beef was flavorless, the sour cream frozen, the guacamole bland, and the rice and beans...one bite was all I needed. The quesadilla was made with processed cheese, reminding us of Velvetta. I forced down one fajita wrap and declared that I was done. And my husband could not be persuaded to help finish my plate. We paid our bill, and as we left I spoke to the manager for a few minutes. She seemed astounded that we didn't like the food. Then she told us that even she didn't recommend the fajitas to people. And as for the rest, well maybe the chef was having an off day. I looked her straight in the eye and told her honestly that it really was the worst Mexican food I have ever had. There are Mexican restaurants in the middle of Alaska with better food, and not a person speaking Spanish in sight. I was not surprised that we weren't offered a refund which would have left us a little happier. As it stands now...we still refer to that meal as "The Meal" and shudder in disgust. Maybe I was just very unlucky, but I cannot fathom how this restaurant could win so many awards for its food.

Cons: Terrible food, difficult parking

Excellent Mexican Food in a very pleasant, quiet atmosphere. Not your typical noisy Taco Joint.
The food was fresh and well prepared, the Service was very efficient and friendly. Altogether a spicy but relaxing evening.

Editorial from

A Sedona institution for Arizona-style Mexican food with grace notes of Southwestern and Navajo traditions, El Rincon seamlessly blends with the surrounding Spanish Colonial ambience of Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. Enjoy…
