Our Friend Jose Pacheco Needs Help

Jose Pacheco Sr., our dear friend and longtime member of the Frontera family, passed away this past weekend.

We are rallying our restaurant community — colleagues,  restaurant regulars, friends and anyone else touched by the kindness of this good man — to make a contribution to support the Pacheco family

Pacheco has been with us for nearly 30 years, charming guests with quiet, elegant tableside manner. Three of Jose's children — Lupe, Baker and Jose, Jr. — are employed at Xoco, which is managed by  his daughter-in-law, Maria Cotorra. 

We are hoping to support this family in their time of need.

On behalf of our restaurant family, thanks for your consideration.
