Johnna’s Pick of the Week: El Rinconcito Deportivo (D.C.)

[ 0 ] April 6, 2009 |

Hole in the walls. We all have that one spot that we wouldn’t take our first date to, but we would definitely go here when we’re in need of some really good food for cheap. That’s what JKGF discovered when we stumbled in on a little spot on 11th st., NW called El Rinconcito Deportivo. Now the name of the restaurant is almost irrelevant because you can barely read the sign especially riding along the street via car or bike. It is extremely low key and a spot you would not wander into without a recommendation of some sort…despite the fact that we had no prior recommendation when we entered these doors, we went at our own risk.
