Have eaten here several times and always had delicious food. Was wanting to try a dish with an unfamiliar sauce and they brought a sample to try. It too was delicious. The food is always piping hot and served quickly. We are fortunate to have such high quality Mexican food when so many areas have decent Tex/Mex at best!

We have enjoyed authentic Mexican cuisine in New York City and Chicago (and Medina, NY), but the Tres Amigos Enchiladas we ordered were the best! The sauces were extremely flavorful with more spice than the menu might lead you to believe. My husband and I enjoy spicy food as long as it is still tasty and these sauces were just... More

I have been to this restaurant many times. I have to say this is not your typical tex mex cuisine. There is no cheese (except a sprinkle of queso fresco) or sour cream. What it is though is absolutely delicious, albeit spicy, Mexican food. The chips and salsa are homemade and tasty. The Sangria is very good. For dinner, I... More

El Rincon is a little Mexican treasure on the outskirts of a tiny village about 25 miles east of Rochester NY. There is a bar next door and a warning sign not to park on the bar side or they will tow you. Not exactly a friendly start. However, it's worth parking correctly and entering. The food is outstanding. The... More

We have tried three times to get there, the last time, August 7th, when it was supposed to be open, we showed up, it looked open but no one was there; when we called, they told us they weren't serving dinner. I have given up. I wrote an email to the owners, no response. I'll go to Maria's instead.

The food was outstanding and the service was great. The only thing, it's a little pricey for the area. With five people, it was kind of expensive, but well worth it. My granddaughters were very happy with their meals, as were the three adults. The atmosphere has brightened up a lot. We had gone there a few years ago and... More

We traveled one hour to try this well-reviewed Mexican restaurant and were not disappointed. In a modest looking place off the main roads, the food was the freshest and the best Mexican food I have ever had. Even the chips and salsa were memorable and the enchilada plate with rice and beans was outstanding. We will definitely spend some travel... More

I have been wanting to try this food for quite some time. I had heard so many positive comments for so long. From the homemade chips salsa and guacamole to the many offerings on this extensive menu, I thoroughly enjoyed it all. This is a small place with huge talent and flavor. Maria and her folks really do it well.... More

Many years ago, my husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant while "shun-piking" northeast of Rochester. What a find! We've been to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, several times and know good, authentic Mexican food. But, needless to say, it's nearly impossible to find in upstate New York. Imagine our surprise and delight when we were served fresh ... fresh!...... More
