    Great Triple D Spot!

    We love Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! A couple weeks ago we went on a lunch date to this Cuban Triple D spot and we cannot rave enough about this Corona hole in the wall. The Vaca Frita was literally the best beef we have ever eaten.

    Twenty Five Years and Counting

    I can't say enough about Rincon. It's like a part of our family history. We've celebrated birthdays , graduations and just because. Haven't had a bad meal yet in the twenty five years I've been coming here with my family and friends. Each time I am greeted like a family/friend who has been gone for awhile. Love this place. Try the arroz con pollo, paella , or pork chops and the fruit shakes are great too, not to mention the flan and tres leches. It all good and delicious . The service is great and all at a very good price and ample portions. Enjoy. A great place to celebrate any occasion.

    our favorite place

    Since we go the first time, like five years ago,this place became our favorite: delicious food,excellent service. It's a small place but this is not a problem for us. Birthdays celebrations are the best I've ever seen.

    For appetizers we had the ham /cheese croquette, cod fritters and tamal, all of which were solid. Entrees were chicken/seafood paella and pork Milanese, all of which were amazing. The service was flat out the best I ever had. Every waiter/waitress (not just the one assigned to our table) made sure to not only fulfill every request with a smile, but even going so far as to telling me I was ordering too much (which he was 100% correct). Every staff member was competent and took initiative. Cannot begin to explain how impressed I was with the service, not to mention the food! Rincon criollo is a real gem and I will be back here many times more!

    Cannot say enough good things!!

    Let me start by saying the only downside to this place is that its small and the wait times are ridiculous sometimes. But it is worth it once the food comes out!! Oxtail ropa vieja vaca frita all made just like my sister in laws Cuban grandmother makes and that woman is old school. Last time I went had their version of chicken cordon blue it was in a garlic sauce and was so good I couldn't stop eating even though I was ready to burst. The chicken was so tender and so full of ham and cheese, with some roasted peppers in there. Took my hubby there, he's from Puerto Rico and VERY picky about rice and beans he LOVED them. Only thing we weren't crazy about was the tostones they were a little thicker than were used to but hey who cares when you throw a little ropa vieja on them. All around great I plan on going there at least once a month and working my way through the menu!! And the staff is great, was there on a Saturday night and had to wait over an hour the waiters brought out ham croquetas for us hungry souls to snack on while we waited. Very friendly they make you feel like your in their homes even when your seated. And they don't rush you which is a big plus for me. If latin comfort food is your thing you have to try this place!! Just try to go on a weekday as the weekends get a little crazy and parking around there gets a little crazy. Other than that Rincon rocks!!

    A REAL Cuban restaurant

    Cuban restaurants in New York are either that trendy, faux thing with high prices, attitude and food that is just not part of our menu or slop houses with mirrors, greasy foods in steaming vats with blaring and simultanous televisions to give it that real ghetto feel. In either case, they are not owned, operated or patronized by Cubans. New York is just not Miami where real Cuban restaurants abound. But this little Creole nook istands apart because it is the real deal. The only thing more Cuban than this place is my mother's kitchen, which is not open to the public. These Cubanitos consistantly serve up well priced, quality food with pride and gusto in this right but confortable place. This is why it's almost always packed. There is just ONE thing I dislike about Rincón Criollo: NO CREDIT/ATM cards.

    Excellent food

    Hubby and I are picky when we go out to eat since we both cook well at home. Had seen this place on Triple D and was dying to try it out... well it was amazing. Some of the best food we have had in a long time. We tried everything from apps to dessert and got a great meal for our money. I was so glad I got my husband to go into the heart of queens to try this place out. He wanted to go back again tonight it was that good. From their service to the atmosphere to the quality of food, we would give everything a five star without a doubt. Had Ropa Veija and Roast Pork... both excellent. Tried the ham croquettes for apps and they were fantastic. The Sangria was off the hook. Overall an amazing experience and looking forward to going back soon.
