We were at Tlaquepaque on Cinco de Mayo and it was a fun atmosphere with live strolling Mariachi Bands, pinata contests and a lively crowd. El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano had an outside bar set up and we waited on line for the Prickly Pear Margaritas. They were excellent and added to our experience of the holiday.

We've enjoyed this attractive restaurant in Sedona's scenic Talaqapaque many times.
Yesterday's lunch was a disappointment.
While we had a super pleasant and efficient server, our food was "ok" but the prices have gone way up.
The patio was not too clean and the umbrellas were difficult to duck under to be seated.

We had dinner on the early side so the restaurant wasn't busy and the service was great. We decided to eat inside due to the windy weather that evening. We both enjoyed a margarita and our dinner. Definitely would recommend it.

We sat out on the patio. The chairs need to be cleaned and tended to. There was a mouse along the wall that joins the restaurant and the three couples there moved their chairs and were visibly upset by this. No one came out to tend to the mouse or help re-seat this party at another table.

Our waiter was condescending and showed poor customer service skills. He didn't come back after serving our meal to ask how everything was. The only time he came back was to deliver the check. Fortunately we didn't require anything else during the meal. He didn't even ask if we were interested in dessert or coffee, etc. The food is average at best, and pricey for what is served.
