Sacramento's Freshest Mexican Street Food Experience

El Rey, or “The King” in Spanish, is a modern taqueria that brings the good vibes of Mexican street cuisine to the historic Oschner Building at 700 & K Street in Downtown Sacramento.

El Rey’s concept is focused on creating a high energy vibe that connects with Chef Bryce Palmer’s passion for Mexican street cuisine, combined with an ownership group that is committed to the development of Sacramento’s up and coming Downtown.

The final product: A high-energy, cocktail-driven dining experience with tacos anchoring the menu, El Rey is here to help invigorate and serve our new Downtown Sacramento.
