Popular East Hamilton Mexican eatery close their doors for good

A delicious Mexican restaurant in East Hamilton announced over the weekend that they would be closing permanently.

On their Facebook page, the owners of Vimex Corner, located at the corner of Main and Tuxedo, announced that as of Sunday (Nov. 1st), they would be closing their doors permanently.

“We’re really sorry that we didn’t let you know in advance because it’s really hard to say good bye,” the post shared on Saturday said.

“Our hearts are broken.”

Vimex has been a go-to for residents in the area for affordable, delicious and authentic Mexican eats for several years now.

Among favourite menu items are their poblano enchiladas, sopes, chimichangas and nachos (featured previously on Inthehammer’s Top 5 Nachos in Hamilton).

Patrons of the restaurant offered an outpouring of dismay and support for the owners who are just as well known for their kindness and impeccable service as they are for their incredible culinary creations.

“This is devastating news! I wish we would have known so that we could have said a proper goodbye. You guys are the sweetest couple and will be truly missed,” wrote one Facebook user, adding that: “Going to miss getting a personal call when my favourite special was being made.”

Throughout the pandemic, Vimex offered take-out and reopened for dine-in when it was safe to do so but it seems it wasn’t enough to keep things going.

“Thank you for all your supporting. We miss you all. Please stay safe, healthy and safe,” Vimex said in their farewell post.

“God bless Hamilton.”
