El Rey describes itself as a taqueria and Mexican beer garden that sells tacos and tequila from a space created from shipping containers.  Their patio, with a retractable roof, offers a cool spot to hang out on a nice night.  They are known for their delicious tacos, but their drinks, including margaritas and other cocktails, beer, wine, and sangria, are even better.


You can book your next party, company happy hour, or other private event at this hip venue, or just come out to enjoy a drink or Sunday brunch.  The menu at El Rey includes a selection of tacos, nachos, tamales, and more.  Take advantage of the bottomless drinks, including mimosas, along with a breakfast burrito during their weekend brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.  So be sure to keep this place in mind as a place to refuel while you’re doing your Small Business Saturday shopping!
