Just as the name suggests, there’s a guy named Otto, and he really loves tacos.  A Southern California transplant living in New York City, founder Otto Cedeno opened the first Otto’s Tacos in the East Village of Manhattan.  Along with Executive Chef Joseph LoNigro, the Otto’s Tacos team has developed a streamlined menu including Street Tacos assembled on fresh masa tortillas, along with signatures like the Gorgon, and craveable sides like Masa Fries.

Otto’s Tacos has deployed successful locations in various neighborhoods in Manhattan, and prides itself on delivering fresh hot Mexican food to it’s guests.  Along with a community of taco-loving employees, Otto continues to bring the fresh, bold flavors of So-Cal Mexican food to the rest of the world, one taco at a time.

We pride ourselves on building a creative team of taco loving people.
