Paco’s for Foothill

Aug 19, 2014

Pacos Trio SaladChristina Karagias states that when she was growing up, the restaurant was called La Pinata. She also says, “I had always wanted to buy it, and in 1996, my goal came true.”

Christina is owner of Paco’s Mexican Restaurant in Arcadia and she says that half of her current staff is the original staff from the 1980’s. “We have a very loyal team at Paco’s.”
