One local Tucson chef who grew up in the southside says it has always been his dream to open up a restaurant. 

After 13 years of catering, he is finally achieving his dream. 

"I'm a true local chef from Tucson and so is my grandfather, so it's in my blood." 

Mateo Otero says he wants to give authentic Mexican food a twist while still maintaining quality and flavor. 

Otero says there will be a soft starting Wednesday and Saturday will be their first official day. 

Rollies is located on the corner of 12th and Ohio.
