Vaca De Mayo is Vacaville’s take on Cinco De Mayo, a holiday originally meant to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire on May 5, 1862. Although it is more popular in the United States than in Mexico, annual Cinco De Mayo celebrations began in California in 1863 and the date is now associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.
Los Reyes Restaurant was founded by chef Fernando Reyes in 2004. Fernando served up family recipes from his Grandmother’s kitchen in Mexico. The restaurant moved to its current Town Square location in 2006. Having celebrated 15 years in business as a locally-owned restaurant, Los Reyes is a fixture in Downtown Vacaville.
