There’s a reason why the bare-bones dining room of this Little Havana restaurant is always packed—the food. The heaping portions of delicious Mexican food served here are not just a bargain (you can easily feed a family of four for $20) but they’re also really tasty. The chorizo queso fundido, which comes bubbling to your table, is a cheesy, meet-filled dream of a starter. It should be noted that the nachos version of this dish is lighter, equally outstanding alternative. Mains are generous and recommended for sharing, especially the sizzling fajitas (chicken, steak, etc.) that you wrap yourself and the salad—which packs enough romaine to fill a garden. There’s a small altar near the entrance that’s dedicated to La Virgen de Guadalupe, to whom we pray for the bounty Mi Rinconcito bestows on all its hungry diners.

I don't think I've ever spent more than $20 on dinner here, and each time they've had to roll me out. Portions are huge! The nachos are a meal unto themselves, so try to share them unless you want to ruin your chances of eating anything else here. I didn't see margaritas on the menu but did notice the waitress stealthily mixing up Costco-brand margarita mix and tequila behind the counter. I guess that's how they get around not having a liquor license, which is fine by me if it means paying $5 for a solid marg.
