At Casa Vargas in Frankfort, touches of Mexican culture are everywhere.

A sign featuring a smiling moon above “bienvenidos” — the Spanish word for welcome — greets customers as they order at the counter. 

Husband-and-wife team Miguel and Rocio Vargas hope their new restaurant, which opened in January, can bring “something different” to the community: a taste of Mexican cuisine at affordable prices.
