Good Grub at a Great Price
Located in downtown Indio across from Indio Performing Arts Center, at 83-011 Indio Blvd., is a small, quaint Mexican restaurant called Rincon Norteno. The décor might not be fancy but the food and the service are both worth stopping in for. Since 1964 Rincon Norteno Mexican Restaurant in Indio, has been serving up good grub at an even better price. If you’re looking for good Mexican food that won’t take your wallet, then you must stop in and try their daily specials. Taco Tuesdays boast shredded beef or chicken tacos for only 1.50, grilled carne asada or chicken for 2.00, fish for 2.50 or shrimp for only 3.00. On enchilada Wednesdays you can get cheese & onions for 1.50, chicken or beef for 2.00 and shrimp for 2.50. They also have drink specials on Mon., Wed. & Fri. with 3.00 chavelas and on Tues., Thurs. & Sat. they have large classic margaritas for only 2.50. And I must say they pour a strong margarita. With all that said it’s obvious the prices are good but what about the portions? I expected for those prices that it would be small servings, but I was wrong. I ordered 2 shrimp enchiladas, which came with rice, beans and a salad, and the portions were huge. My friend ordered the triple plate, which came with an enchilada, burrito and tamale accompanied with rice, beans and salad. It was more than he was able to finish. The taste of the carne asada burrito was tender and tasty and the shrimp in the enchilada was fresh. A few things that stood out about the food were; they claim to be the only Mexican restaurant in the valley that serves their salsa warm, and it’s the only place I’ve ever had it that way, they serve their nachos with melted jack cheese and they have delicious fresh guacamole that accompanied the salsa and chips quite well. So if you’re looking for large portions of some good Mexican grub at a great price then Rincon Norteno is the place to go. They also do take-out and delivery as well as catering.
