Rincon Del Pollo
9129 Fourth Street NW (North Valley)
Cuisine: Mexican, New Mexican
A stone’s throw away from Alameda, this bright red and yellow brick building is a haven for pollo sabroso. You can get your chicken dressed in gravy, swimming in red or green chile, or stuffed into a burrito, torta or taco (to name a few); better still, wash it down with a fresh glass of horchata. In a town of too-often lifeless refried beans, Rincon served us the best home-style frijoles we’ve had in a shamefully long time. The chicken soup is mild and thick with rice and chunks of celery, carrot and yellow bell pepper.
