Although some 30 miles from Rochester, for those who crave real Mexican food with no frills, his is the place for you. Maria has been running this place for over 25 years. It started as somewhere to eat for the migrant workers who come into the area for the fruit-picking and was then "discovered". The service may sometimes be slow... More

There is simply no better Mexican food to be had outside of Mexico. We know our Mexican food and this is the place. The chili rellano is heaven. The moles are second to none, and the beans and rice side are perfect. Seafood is fresh and never overcooked and my husband (who lived in Mexico for some time) raves about... More

From the confusing parking situation (Bubba's BBQ don't take kindly to trespassin') to classy pop cans of drinks and the dog, we won't be returning. This was our second visit to El Rincon in the past six years. The first visit wasn't that great and we thought we would try it again. The salsa is hot hot hot! Even when... More

My sister and I had dinner at El Rincón Mexicano in Sodus, NY. We were intrigued by the daily special of: huarache, and asked our young server about the ingredients. He actually wasn't entirely sure, but explained that it starts with a hand made corn tortilla and I quote: "pretty much anything you want on it." We had a conversation... More

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!
