     El Rincon Restaurant Mexicano in Tlaquepaque celebrates its 40th Anniversary in April, 2016! 40 years of serving you our timeless "Arizona Style Mexican Cuisine." 40 years of consistently serving over 3.5 million hungry customers a unique regional cuisine that originated from the "Wickedest town in the West," Jerome, Arizona. 40 years of keeping our timeless menu fresh and innovative, but true to its cultural origins. Origins that began 127 years ago when the United Verde Mine in Jerome brought riches and mayhem to the Verde Valley when cultures collided as Jerome burst to a population of 15,000 people practically overnight.  The Mine was a cultural melting pot as it brought workers from as far away as Mexico, China, and Europe, as well as, close by Yavapai, Navajo and Hopi Nations. However, the enduring roots of Arizona Style Mexican Cuisine mostly lie in the blending of the Mexican and Navajo cultures.

     Arizona Style starts with serving Sopapillas full size, like Indian Fry Bread. Then we use the full size Sopapilla as the crust for a pizza we call the Navajo Pizza. On the Navajo Reservation they're called Navajo Tacos. Using the same Sopapilla masa we roll it around Beef, Chicken, Shrimp, Green Chili, or ??? creating the unique El Rincon "Arizona Style" Chimichanga. No other Mexican restaurant uses real hand-rolled masa to make their Chimichangas. Our Navajo Pizza and Arizona Style Chimichangas are the reasons El Rincon is so special and unique. We bring you a true Regional Cuisine, a blend of traditional Mexican and native Navajo, not available anywhere else in the world. For 40 years it's been our pleasure to serve you the finest, freshest, homemade “Arizona Style Mexican Cuisine” that can be made.

     El Rincon will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary with an eight day Fiesta El Rincon!  The Fiesta takes place daily, Sunday, April 17th through Sunday, April 24th, 2016.  With music everyday in the courtyard from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. featuring the band ”Mariachi Azteca de Oro" and from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. the Gypsy Flamenco music of "Gaetano." The Fiesta includes food specials featuring Green Chile Navajo Pizzas and Filet Mignon Chimichangas. Drink specials include Mexican beers and our world famous Margarita Magnifica!

Have you tried El Rincon's Navajo Pizza?

Imagine... rolled round and lightly fried Sopapilla Masa into a thin puffy bread like crust, big like a large tortilla only better. Then its covered with El Rincon's refried pinto beans, then your choice of sauce, either our homemade Red Enchilada Sauce or El Rincon's award winning Green Chile with Beef. Now, really cover the pizza with a mix of Jack and Cheddar Cheese and oven bake it until the cheese is bubbly. Finally, sprinkle on top diced Tomatoes, Red Onions, Bell Peppers of all colors, and a traditional Black Olive in the center. Magnifico! El Rincon's famous Navajo Pizza! A true Native American/Mexican Pizza that will rival ANY other Italian or New York pizza you have ever tasted. An El Rincon promise! We say famous because for 39 years El Rincon has made the Navajo Pizza the same way. No changes! And for 39 years El Rincon's Navajo Pizza brings our customers back again and again. So if you haven't tried an El Rincon Navajo Pizza then you've been missing out for a long, long time. So stop missing out and come in soon! Ole!
