“take-away Tamales!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

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.

“Kitchen closes earlier than the store....”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

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.

“Best Tamales Ever!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

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 chips and fresh salsa on the side.

My husband enjoyed the taquitos combination plate, which also ncludes beans, rice, and chips and fresh salsa on the side.

TIP: For dessert we shared Jericalla. it was our first time having this dessert ever and it was delicious. It's homemade and tastes like creme brulee. Also a serving of Jericalla is only a $1.50 and it is enough for two people to share after a meal.

“Best homemade tamales ever!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Sooo good. Kinda pricey, but worth it! They have chicken, beef, pork, chees and sweet tamales. Gotta try it! Their enchiladas are pretty good too!
