There's a lot of mexican restaurants out there way too overrated and controlled only by social media. My wife and I came across this family owned restaurant located on St Clair West and even though the restaurant is not suited with expensive furniture and top notch decorations, the food is simply AMAZING! There's a wonderful outdoor patio, live music, very attentive customers service but most importantly, the price are very affordable. We had an great time and we are looking forward to go back to el Rincon.

I visited the restaurant for the first time for lunch on the Friday before Labour Day. It was very hot and humid, and the backyard patio provided a cool haven away from the exhaust fumes and noise of the street. The service was friendly and efficient without being rushed. The food, fajitas with sausage, was delicious, spicy but not too hot. The main room with colourful Mexican furniture and décor was charming but the lure of the patio is very strong. So glad this spot is in my neighbourhood. I'll want to eat here again.

My friend and I were greeted by the most delightful waitress who was so helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Not to mention she was just a complete sweetie pie! We sat on the back patio which was wonderful on a warm summer day. The food was heavenly! Delicious with every bite. Make sure you give yourself lots of time as the food is made from scratch and to order so it takes a while to get to your table, but certainly worth the wait. The Guacamole is fresh and tortilla chips house made! This restaurant by far exceeded my expectations! I will be back again and again!

We liked everything! Nice place, very friendly waitress, clean bathrooms. But the main thing-food was delicious and the price was right. We definitely will come back again!
