I've been coming here for several decades. Never a bad meal. Whether it's "Ropa Viena", "Palomilla" or the "Criollo Fish" every single time it's been perfectly cooked. Consistency is everything to me. Authentic Cuban meals without breaking the bank.

We had so much food and everything was delicious. The beef was tender, the pork entree melts in your mouth, and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend the plantains. Honestly everything we ordered was delicious.

Now, you call Rincon at least an hour before you go there. Why? You order their home made to order Paella! Unbelieveable! Best I ever tasted! Either a seafood one or chicken. Pork. Need I say more!
