Comida Buena

Taqueria El Rinconcito Express in Bingen, WA
Bingen, WA, population 712, is located along the Columbia River on Hwy 14--across the river from Hood River, Oregon and just south of White Salmon, WA. Three of the area's largest employers, SDS Lumber Company, Underwood Fruit and Insitu are located in Bingen. AND one of our favorite places to eat, Taqueria El Rinconcito Express! The picture at left is of the front of the little restaurant. Unassuming but neat and clean. They have good food (comida buena), simply made and that translates into DELICIOUS for me!

My husband really enjoys the HUGE Vegan Burrito with Mole. I like a combo plate with rice, refried beans, corn tortillas, cabbage & avocado--yum! While we enjoy their vegan/vegetarian selections, they offer beef, chicken and pork as well. 

They actually have two locations--the one in Bingen at 114 w Stueben West and the other at 1833 Cascade in Hood River, Oregon. 

A few of the menu items are:

  • Burritos for $6.75
  • Baby Burritos for $4.75
  • Tacos for $2.25
  • Low-Carb Burritos for $7.25
  • Quesadillas--cheese for $3.50; meat for $4.75
  • Tamales (only on Fridays) for $2.25
  • Combo Plate for $8.00
  • Tortas for $7.50
