2006-08-24 13:16:03   I went there this past Saturday 08/19/06. Unfortunately it wasn’t worth the extra gas to get out there. The prices were very inexpensive which was great. The place was plain which was fine. The food was good which was, at a bare minimum, expected. However it tasted just like all the other Tex-Mex places I've been to. Everything was drowning in taco sauce and melted cheese. I'm fully confident that's not "authentic" Mexican.

If you want good Tex-Mex food for low prices and you’re in the area, it’s a perfectly functional option. If you’re looking for authentic Mexican, head out 104E to the village of Sodus and enjoy real Mexican food at El Rincon.

I had to ask the waiter whether I actually got my chile relleno, it had been heated to the point of becoming flat and unrecognizable. Only a fork in the ocean of cheese revealed the drowned chile. We went last year, when it just opened, and it was great, but now, eh, I'll go to Salena's in VillageGate. Yes, it's 50% more, but it's a lot better food, worth my money to go out. —KatieSchmitz

Just as good as the original El Rincon in Sodus mentioned by ZedOmega. UPDATE - name has changed recently but menu and food are basically the same. El Rincon MexicanoDottieHoffmann

I had the fajitas - it tasted much better than those at San Jose Mexican Restaurant. My friends had taquitos and chimichangas and really liked those too. I am not sure if I can speak for its authenticity but I did notice some spanish speaking families eating there. —OneLove

The server was great, the prices are incredibly cheap, and the food is satisfying. It's not the most fabulous Mexican I've ever had, but it was tasty. They have a huge selection of dishes. I got an interesting dish that was eggs with a fried pepper with cheese and some sort of sauce. It was really interesting and very tasty. —CatMagro

2008-06-15 08:42:05   Yes, it appears they are closed for business, due to owing 20K+ in Taxes. There is another Mexican Restaurant, just North of there by CTY rd 41 and 332, called El JimadorMikeDixon

2008-09-15 10:48:44   They reopened under another business name. It's nothing like it was originally. :( —ThatGuy
