“Mexican Cuisine  served just the Way You Want It”

By Sandy Zimmerman

People have been enjoying Frank & Fina’s Cocina for over 23 years.

Frank and Fina Pacheco are proud of their reputation for

delicious Mexican cuisine

Their special blend of spices and secret recipes make the dishes so tasty,

a bit different from the usual Mexican cuisine.

Frank and Fina Pacheco

Although the couple

would not tell me

all of the ingredients

in the marinades

and sauces,

I was thrilled with

the tantalizing


bold spices and creative mix of ingredients.

Frank feels, “We always serve meals that are consistent

in quality and taste.

This is very important because our customers

come back again and again.

During this uncertain economy, we give more to the public- good food at

reasonable prices so they always know it is going to be great.

One of their customer’s favorites, charbroiled chicken,

is served by the piece and as a meal.

This is a perfect selection for anyone on a diet

for health or to lose weight.

The large four-pound chicken is very

tender because it is marinated 3-4 hours before cooking.

I was surprised when they brought my shrimp fajitas because the platter did

not sizzle yet when I tasted my first bite of jumbo shrimp,

the sizzle was in the flavor.

It was such a big serving that two people could have eaten

the entree with so much on the platter,

This is one of the few restaurants where you will find

Sweet Potato Enchiladas.

Another interesting house specialty, chicken mole

enchiladas is topped with authentic Poblano brown mole

sauce, cheese and sour cream.

Try their Yucatan-style selections baked pork Cochinita

Pibil or the marinated Steak Uxmal topped with grilled

onions.  The cook marinates the meat for a few hours and

cooks slowly to hold in the juices.

Their Mexican sandwiches, Tortas, are filled with your

choice of steak, chicken, or pork.

If you like your steak Mexican-style, choose either the

Tampiquena rib-eye steak topped with grilled bell peppers

and onions with a cheese enchilada. 

Champoton Rib-eye steak is served with a

half order of shrimp fajitas. 

Of course all the Mexican favorites are on the menu.

way you want it!  

Even though Frank and Fina have 10 Mexican

combination platters, you can also make your own. 

They just want to please their customers.

The restaurant's quaint Mexican atmosphere makes you

think of a hacienda with their high ceilings and open

window between rooms.

The hot chips and salsa are brought to

the table immediately."
