We were a party of seven personss including 2 kids. The menu was varied, including chicken steak, deep fried pork, lamb in a sauce, moros, fried green plantains. waiting time was reasonable, food arrives fresh and warm, excellent taste. Our server was amaizing. The price very reasonable and the amount of food.. good for any eater. Congratulations, we strongly recommend this place to all of you.

Last time i got food from this place i ordered a whole fish to go. When i got home to eat i realized that they had only given me half of fish the bottom had been sliced off . It was only one half side of the fish. You would not realize it until you flipped it over.

This place USED TO BE good!!!! They recently changed ownership, for which they appointed a new "manager." We went there on a Sunday morning with my family. Four members of my family arrived first (20mins prior to my arrival) and placed their breakfast orders; I then arrived w/ my wife and ordered as well. We noticed four parties that sat after we did (parties with 3 or more) who received their food within 10-15mins of sitting down. We inquired about our order with the waitress and her response was,"there are several orders at the same time, I can't do anything about that..." FORTY FIVE minutes went by and we had only received our coffees and toasts, which were so old that the wooden table would have been softer on my teeth. We requested to talk to the "manager" and she "attempted" to explain that there were several orders before us; however, two (out of six) of our breakfasts were coming and that we should remain patient...my mother, who was furious, told the manager that they had poor service, to which she replied (followed by her rude hand gestures), "Excuse me but we provide an excellent service but if you don't like our service, you should pay the coffees/toasts, leave and never come back!", and proceeded to walk away from the table. After her rude comments, we heard another patron complain about her food being cold, which by the way, their party also came after we did. I used to go there twice a month and most of the waitresses knew me, except the one serving us that day.

The most disappointing I've ever had. Chicken had no taste and the rice was unappetizing. Apparently cooked separately from the chicken and it even had corn. I can't fathom that. I've eaten from here for years with no problem, but never again will I have the so called arroz con pollo.

Everything I've ever had here is gangbusters. I have eaten in lots of restaurants in lots of places. This is a place I can confidently go at any time. Knowing whatever is on the menu will taste great. Awesome comfort food. Save me mama, I love them near as much as your home cooking.

When I am not in the mood to cook just for me. I hop in the car sit myself at the bar or at a table. I know the servers by name. The girls try their best. Some complain about the breakfast quality. Let me give you a tip. If you are going to eat cuban food go for lunch or dinner. Cubans are not big in cooking big breakfast unless they have been americanized. However the lunch and dinner menu is very splendid and inexpensive. Two can eat easily out one order. When people say the help is not desirable. Remember those girls only live on tips. If you are a regular and visit at least 10 times a year and you tip them 20% they will remember you and wait on you to the best of their abilities. I compare El rinconcito to an itallian trattoria. You get the quality, the value, the homy atmosphere. You are not sitting at a 5 star restaurant so stop complaining about the waitress. You get one waiter per 10 to 15 tables and they try to do the best they can! On my way to pick up take out!

You're better off going to a fast food joint down the street. Breakfast took an eternity to get to my table. Server refused to smile. Bacon was not edible. Never going again. What a shame I live so close. :/
