El Rincon brings the inventive flavors and hearty, comforting dishes of Mexican fare stateside. Make friends with the menu by opting for the Mexican plate, huddling together a wise-cracking cheese enchilada, a crispy taco, a charming chalupa, munchable mercenaries of rice and beans, and a guest appearance by pop star Guaca Mole ($5.99). The fajita plate wraps scene-stealing sizzling steak or chicken in steamy homemade tortillas ($8.49), and the hefty burrito dinner ($6.50) and the beef enchiladas plate ($6.39) sport the spicy couture of the restaurant's green salsa, named a favorite of the 2010 Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Fest. Providing weekly soundtracks to these dining epochs, the mariachis of El Rincon serenade diners with swooning, passionate ballads about the Battle of Carne Asada.
