South of the Border, Southside Style: Reyes Tortilleria brings authentic Mexican fare to the south side

Extremely authentic Mexican food in Bend.

Hidden in the southside's unassuming Scandia Village shopping plaza off of Reed Market Road is the most authentic Mexican food joint I have found in Bend to date. Reyes Tortilleria owners Carlos and Martha Reyes of Michoacán, Mexico, started the business in 2003 simply as a tortilleria. Their amazing fresh corn tortillas, only $2.70 for a roughly half-foot stack, now sit displayed in the back corner of what has expanded into a heavily trafficked Mexican market, deli, bakery and eatery.

This is truly one-stop shopping for all things Mexican from piñatas to soap, sunglasses to conchas (Mexican sweet bread), calling cards to cabeza de puerco (pig's head). The kitchen is the centerpiece of Reyes, serving a refreshingly less Americanized version of Mexican fare from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
