It's a bakery and a kitchen. They make everything in advance, and if you want a hot meal, they warm it up in a microwave. A lot of folks buy enchiladas, quesadillas, tamales, to take out and eat at home. Also tortas, pies, cakes, doughnuts and all that. I had breakfast there — a very tasty warmed-up tamale: It could...

We've taken these tamales home a few times, and they were GREAT!!! But they are the 100% perfect train food!! Warmed at Reynaldo's, grab a fork and napkins, and you're ready to go!!!

Stopped in for a quick breakfast and was surprised to see all the great looking pastries. We had carnitas tacos and breakfast quesadilla. Both were really good, fresh, hot and delivered quickly. We could have split the quesadilla and it would have been plenty. The carnitas tacos were really authentic.

Tamales were refrigerated who knows how long ago they made them. Nothing like what I expected. Place is run down. Not so clean.

A wide array of muffins, cookies, pastries, as well as lots of kinds of tamales. Reynaldos does specialty cakes, lots of Mexican delights. And they have good coffee.

Show up here early in the day if you want your choice of tamales. The red and green pork sell out early! They have a good selection of tamales along with many other pastry treats.

Went early, got day-old donuts (fair); asked when they closed; they said 7PM; we came back at 6PM and were told that the KITCHEN closed oh, about, 5PM (she wasn't sure). Very disappointing.

I ate lunch at Reynaldo's Bakery last weekend with my husband. It was delicious and can't believe we haven't eaten here before now!! This place isn't much to look at on the inside or outside, the staff is nice, BUT IT'S THE FOOd that's delicious. I loved the chicken tamale with green sauce combination plate which includes beans, rice, and... More
