Restaurant.com was giving away $10 gift certificates, so I rounded up a friend and headed over to Otaez for lunch.
Friend had the #1 combo plate. It was a combo plate. It was huge. He enjoyed it (and he's pretty picky about his Mexican).
I had the carnitas, which is a regular special Fri-Sun. I've had it before and it was even better than I remembered: the pork is moist and yet well carmelized. Comes with a small green salad, rice and beans, plus all the warm housemade tortillas and chips and salsa you can eat. Maybe the best $7.95 plate of food you can get in a "real" restaurant.
