Mexican on St. Clair near Vaughn?

For years we've heard from various people that there is a fantastic Mexican place on St Clair near Vaughn/Bathurst... We'd love to go tonight but have no idea what it is called or where exactly it is.... soooo... anyone out there think they know the place I am talking about?

  1. I am thinking it might be El Rincon that I found a link to on another discussion thread.... any guidance?

      I tried El Rincon a couple of weeks ago and it was great -- not fine dining or anything "fantastic" but it depends on what you are looking for -- the food was really good and ingredients were fresh. I will definitely try it again. I had the veggie tacos (I know not very inspired) and guacamole to start. It was a Tuesday and the place was about half full so I think people keep going back.

    2. Fantastic is a bit of a stretch. The backyard patio's the best part.

        Is there another place near that location that is better?

      2. Rebozo's isn't too far from that area but not on St. Clair.

          Rebezos is the only great Mexican place in that area that I know of, but it's a ways from St. Clair and Vaughn.

          By the way, I bought a kilo of carnitas from them recently and they were fantastic. Both my small-town Anglo-Canadian mother who is highly suspicious of new food and my Mexican SO loved them. Such is the magic of carnitas.
