Everyday Business | Westside restaurant chain to open Mexican eatery here

El Rinconsito
Taqueria El Rinconsito will be opening on North Miller Street in late April or early May.

Taqueria El Rinconsito, an expanding chain of Mexican restaurants based in Federal Way, has announced it’ll open its 14th eatery in Wenatchee by late April or early May.

The new restaurant will open in the former location of the 7-Eleven store that once operated at the corner of North Miller Street and Springwater Avenue. The restaurant will have around 15 employees.

“We have a lot of hopes for our business in Wenatchee,” said El Rinconsito spokesman Enrique Islas. “There’s a large Hispanic population and many tourists and visitors who know our restaurants from the westside of the mountains.”

El Rinconsito has restaurants throughout Puget Sound, including Bellevue, Burien, Kent, Lynnwood and Tacoma. The company has two locations in Yakima and is planning a 15th restaurant for Vancouver later this year.

“We see ourselves in a middle category between fast food and a family restaurant,” said Islas. “Customers order at the counter, and we bring the food to their table. It’s a concept that we’ve found our customers like a lot.”

El Rinconsito offers a full menu of traditional Mexican recipes — tacos, tortas burritos, enchiladas, soups and seafood — but also specializes in Spanish-style antojitos, which use a mix of meats, cheeses and vegetables in different styles of tortillas. The guarachi, for example, is a flat tortilla (pizza style) loaded with a layer of meat, then tomatoes and vegetables, then cheese and a variety of sauces.

“Our goal,” said Islas, “is to serve tasty and authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices.” In Yakima, where competition is fierce among Mexican restaurants, El Rinconsito offers “happy hour” tacos for 69 cents from 2 to 5 p.m. weekdays.
