El Rinconcito/11th Street NW D.C.

I've seen several older posts on the Salvadorean place El Rinconcito in Columbia Heights. I'm curious whether the 11th St. resto of the same name is a branch or a separate establishment. I've been by it many times, living a few blocks away (it's just south of M Street).

Has anyone tried the one on 11th? Comments?

  1. The one in the 1300 block of Park Rd. in Columbia Heights is El Rinconcito Dos, the outpost of the first El Rinconcito near 11th and M. Dos is a nicer place, but the food is the same.

    The carne deshilada (order this with egg) is a great dish. The tamales are very good. Ceviche is serviceable, as are the papusas. After that, I don't think there's all that much to like, but that's enough.
