What People Are Saying About the Mexican Food at El Rincon

Zachary B. – 5 Stars

Wow! I have been by the place so many times, but never thought to stop by. I’ve been missing out!! The inside is super cute, and the food is the bomb. I had chicken fajitas which were super yummy, while my friend had enchiladas that were equally as yummy. The queso was super flavorful, and the salsa had a wonderful chipotle taste that kept me coming back for more. The only thing I would say is I would have liked everything to be a bit spicier. But other than that, I can’t recommend enough!”

Jona G. – 5 Stars

“Really love the atmosphere and happy hour on weekends!!  They had a singer tonight and our margs were $5 each good price especially for a Saturday night.  The food was good too. My husband got the Baja shrimp tacos and liked them. He’s not usually a fan of cold slaw but said it tasted okay on the tacos.  I got the shrimp quesadillas and it was definitely enough for one and they tasted good. We liked the salsas and margs, definitely will be back!”

Amber M. – 4 Stars

“We decided on this place bc of yelp. I’ve lived in Carrollton forever, but rarely go downtown. This place did not disappoint! I was pretty basic. I got the brisket nachos and my friend got the brisket quesadillas. Both yummy! I’m always iffy when ordering brisket bc it can be too salty or not properly seasoned, but this was yummy!

I’m also a sucker for thick warm chips and salsa, which they had! Mmmmmmm

My friend also tried their shrimp cocktail which she loved! I tried it, it was yummy.. I’m just not a fan of that much tomato lol but even the chips served with the cocktail were yummy and different from the regular chips!

The margarita was strroong! I got the frozen margarita which had liquor then they add more!

We also tried their chocolate cake! So yummy! At first it was an odd texture bc I’m guessing it was refrigerated and then they place sizzling hot chocolate on it. Will definitely be going back to try more!”
