We cook what our friends grow. Come enjoy farm to table cooking in Alameda!
Otaez is the name of a small town in Durango, Mexico. When Jesus and Socorro Campos bought the original Otaez Mexicatessen of Oakland in November of 1985, it was just a small market with a kitchen known for serving traditional favorites to the locals of Oakland's Fruitvale District. Jesus, a cook in a local restaurant, and Socorro, a waitress for several years. decided to combine their ideas and open their own family owned restaurant, keeping the name Otaez Mexicatessen. Thanks to loyal patronage and support, Otaez Mexicatessen grew and expanded to the current location in 1987. After years of hard work and dedication, we opened the doors to our second location in Alameda on March 13, 2006... Otaez Mexican Restaurant.
