Open seven days a week, Sunday through Thursday from 11am-9pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am-10pm, Reyna’s Taqueria offers indoor and outdoor dining with house-made, traditional Mexican dishes created by Chef Gino Calleja, former executive chef of Siesta Key Oyster Bar since 2015, and former executive chef of Mattison’s City Grille from 2008-2015.
Some menu items include: “Al Pastor Sopes”: Sopes are a unique Mexican item, a cousin of the tortilla, but are fried corn dough, hand-crafted into thick patties with raised edges, spread with refried black beans, filled with Guajillo Marinated Pork Shoulder, topped with lettuce, queso fresco, crema, and avocado with a side of salsa. “Barbacoa Tacos” are traditional Mexican tacos served warm with slowly-braised beef and traditional spices, onions, cilantro, and served with house-made salsa on the side. “Chicken Tinga Molote”, blue corn patty filled with pulled chicken breast, chipotle peppers & onions, tomatoes, and Oaxaca cheese topped with crema, queso fresco, and salsa roja on the side. Reyna’s House-made Sangria, a Calleja family recipe, is refreshing and fruity.
