I went there after getting a 25.00 Certificate from Restaurant.com. They were listed on the places. I gotten 2 25.00 certificates honestly. Well I took my family there on Halloween before trick or treating. the service was slow even though we were the only ones there at the time. The staff didn't speak English very well . The free chips... More

Must be a cleaner restaurant somewhere in plant city! Had piece of lettuce in my water. Not enough wait staff. Food was tasty but salsa has strange taste. Chips overly greasy and hard.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is it. There are lots of customers and we are the only Americana. The building is a hole in the wall and the food is excellent.

El Rincon is consistently good. Chips appear to be homemade. The salsa is warm and spicy. And that is all before your food is delivered. My carnitas tasted wonderful with a generous portion bur a few pieces of fat that I needed to pick off. The pico was mild and flavorful, a nice complement to the crispy lettuce underneath it....

I picked this Restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. I had things to do in Plant City and we felt like having some Mexican food, so we picked El Rincon Mexicano as it had good reviews. As usual, we were not disappointed with the food. The service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. The restaurant is not... More

We try to find a latino place to eat when we found El Rincon Mexicano. Food was very good and fresh. We strongly recommend this place.

Great local Mexican cafe. Located off the main street, this restaurant is a local "hangout". You think you are in a small town in Mexico. Friendly and hospitable staff. The home made corn chips are fantastic. We had the whole fresh red snapper and shrimp in garlic sauce. Both were delicious and full of wonderful flavors. Even the rice was... More

Eating at El Rincon Mexicano was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing, extremely fresh and very well-priced. My husband and I went for lunch, on a whim, and were very pleased. We will definitely be back soon. We also got a chance to meet the owner, who took the time to introduce herself and ask about our experience. We... More

We tried this restaurant after seeing other reviews express its authenticity. They were all correct. This place is really a destination location, out along farmland and not much else. Definitely worth the drive if you want "real" Mexican. The tacos were excellent and tasted as though the tortillas were handmade. The enchiladas had the best sauce I've ever tasted. The... More

Let me start by saying I have been to some of the best restaurants in the world and have also visited dives in third-world countries. I know food! We had a couple of hours to spend in Plant City (known for it's strawberries). What I knew is that strawberry fields means migrant workers, and mainly Mexican migrant workers, so we... More
