Meanwhile, Frank says he’s working on having his dream restaurant in the plaza ready over the summer.

I start for home. Notice a quote in metal letters high up on the Jacobs Center. It’s from the man who made this big community center happen, Joe Jacobs himself.

“And what did we start with? Nothing more than opportunity.”

Guess you could say the same about Frank.

I'd heard about this place a while back but forgot about it. I'm going to make a mental note to try it. Thanks for the tip. Good food options in this community are rare if you're looking for more than a taco shop.

So true MsSheree. Frank is a genuine character and everyone I met making the pilgrimage said he was worth it (because there are a couple of BBQ places eight across the creek in the shopping complex. And actully he'd like to set up there if he gets the chance.) Meanwhile he's still the best kept secret west of the Pecos. I'll be going back to try the catfish.
