Back in 1967 our founder Javier Ruiz immigrated to the United States with a dream of opening his own taco shop. In 1983 with the help and guidance of his older brother David Ruiz they achieved his dream. Opening “Cotijas Taco Shop” in El Cajon, California laying down the groundwork for“Oscar’s Taco Shop ®“ in Nashville TN! With time his children became involved in the family business and in 2003 the Ruiz brothers branched out to Tennessee under the name “Oscar’s Taco Shop ®”. The rest is family history….Javier Ruiz retired from the family business afterwards, but to this day he continues to inspire his children to never look back. Armed with passion and family kept recipes “Oscar’s Taco Shop ®” continues to grow to this day!
