The old coal mining town of Cadogan is in Armstrong County, right beside the Allegheny River, and Nic DiCio has put together a factory there that makes some of the world's best corn tortilla chips. He uses traditional techniques to soak, cook, grind and mix the corn for his chips, and he's designed and engineered all the ovens, cooling conveyors, fryers and packing machines that make up the production line. His business is called Reyna Foods – with a store in the Strip at Penn and 21st Street – and his product line now includes corn and flour tortillas that are definitely worth a special trip. (If you visit Cadogan, be sure to check out the Villa restaurant on 128 north of town. Great Italian.)

Reyna Foods in the Strip District is Pittsburgh's oldest Latin food store. Get the inside story from owner Nick DiCio who shows us there's more than just amazing chips at this local institution.
