Family of four , two couples including one in their 80’s on a special two night stay in Sedona luckily chose this wonderful restaurant for their special dinner! Small outside patio ( table for 4) on the outside corner, complete with a heat lamp and optional blankets to place on your lap. Servers wore masks/ and or face shields, there was hand sanitizer on the table for use, and the food and service was fantastic! The servings were big which led to delicious leftovers the next day. The chips and salsa were fantastic. For the couple in their 80’s this was only their second time eating out since March 2020 and it was a fabulous night to remember always ! Thank you to your staff. We will be back !

Really nothing bad to say, just overpriced for average tasting Mexican food. I would try another restaurant next time we're in the mood for Mexican.

Excellent Mexican food! We were walking around Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village and saw El Rincon. The Navajo Red Chile Pizza was delicious! The small was the perfect amount for one person. We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant as well. As for COVID precautions, all the staff were wearing masks and there was even hand sanitizer on the table.
