Authentic Mexican food

The cook is Mexican, the food is excellent. The only reason for docking it a star is because the service is a little slow. (but friendly). They are only open Thursday thru Sunday... I usually want to go the on Monday!!

El Rincon started as a restaurant for the Mexican migrant workers that picked apples during the summer. It now stays open year round. The owner is very friendly. The food is authentic Mexican food.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant! The owner, Maria, brought some new recipes back from her home town. We tried the new shrimp tortas and chicken Milanesa that were so yummy. And the tamales fresh out of the oven were to die for!

Foe the little town of Sodus, this is a wonderful, authentic Mexican meal. We've been there many times and have always enjoyed it!

There were 11 of us celebrating an anniversary on a Sunday evening. Service was a little slow as we had reservations but then it got very busy for a late Fall Sunday night. The waitress was really hustling and I'll bet she was tired when she got home but she really earned her tips. The food was excellent!! As close... More

This was my first time driving out to Sodus to get dinner at El Rincon and it was certainly worth the time spent to get there. I have always been a fan of authentic Mexican food and the flavors were delicious. Definitely family friendly and casual, even though they were extremely busy our food came out in a reasonable amount... More

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
