Otaez Mexican Restaurant is named after a small town in Durango, Mexico. It was known as Otaez Mexicatessen of Oakland, a small market with a kitchen known for serving traditional favorites to the locals of Oaklands Fruitvale District. Otaez Mexicatessen was purchased by Jesus and Socorro Campos in November 1986. Jesus a cook in a local restaurant and Socorro a waitress for several years decided to join together, combine their ideas and open their own family owned restaurant, keeping the name Otaez Mexicatessen.
Thanks to loyal patronage and support, Otaez Mexicatesssen continues to thrive and grow. After years of hard work and dedication, in March 2006 we opened the doors to our new home in Alameda, Otaez Mexican Restaurant. We welcome you into our home and hope to bring to you a piece of Mexico here in Alameda.
