Okay so I'll be frank. food was not bad, but not impressive. I'm forever in search of the magical fish taco to convince me I like fish tacos, but they were just alright. I'd try it again, but not in a hurry to.

We come here all of the time with big groups. Their drinks are great, the ambiance is fun. The service knows how to work with you. The food is good- and the burritos are humongous! My favorite are the fish tacos- so delicious!

My wife had a veggie burrito and I had the Carnitas. Her burrito was huge and my plate was covered, They were both good and very reasonably priced.

Local favorite. Good, basic mexican food. Platos come with a rich red mole sauce on enchaladas, so if you want to experience the flavor of the food spend an extra buck and get the green.

Otaez was once my favorite Mexican Restaurant I love the burrito. I use to go once a week, Now they raise the price and the portion are smaller. Now I only go once a month at best. Still enjoy the place.
