Food was very good, a bit on the pricey side although the portions are plentiful. Our only disappointment was that the basket of chips and salsa were ala carte and we were charged $3.50 for a tiny basket of chips and a little salsa on the side. Didn't exactly go far with four adults. I've been to many Mexican restaurants... More

We expected a Mexican Restaurant to have some Hot Sauce on hand! Not even a bottle from the local store to be had there! Mom's pork was as dry as rope, my food was just awful too! No excuses either, since we the only customers they had, so they had all the time in the world to get it right!

Quite the interesting place. We were in a large party and for the most part everyone enjoyed the food. Most items were good and some were very well done (the guacamole is a good example of this). HOWEVER ..... There are some issues that need to be brought to your attention before you venture there. 1. This is not a... More

Stopped here on our way from Rochester to Syracuse area. While service was slow it was friendly and most importantly the food was excellent so worth the wait. Chicken tacos, Burro Maria and three amigo enchiladas were all great. Will be back.

Although the service was a little slow, the food was excellent. Perhaps a bit overpriced for the amount of food. Will definitely go back again.

THE UGLY: water was lukewarm, we asked for ice and it took quite awhile to get it....since when do you serve warm water? We came here a couple of years... More

This quaint family owned business is a gem. The food is fresh and delicious. The ceviche appetizer was amazingly tasty but not enough for four. Probably 2 would have been more appropriate. My husband had a chicken Fajita and found it tasty. My son had a burrito Derek and he loved the chipotle sauce and the chicken was flavorful. My... More

If you are thinking of trying eL Rincon Mexicano, send the directions to your GPS and get in the car. This is, by far, the best Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten in. This is not Tex-Mex chain restaurant crap. It's authentic and so incredibly good you will not want to eat elsewhere. Ever. I'm not kidding. The interior is nothing... More

Was hungry and looking forward to eating here, but found a dead insect cooked into the rice. Won't be returning to give this restaurant a second chance...I agree with other reviewers about the menu prices being too high for portion size and food quality. The restaurant looks adorable inside and has great outside seating. If you're only planning to have... More
