Rochester is a long way from Guadalajara in western Mexico. But Francesco Eoyoque saw an opportunity in the cold climate locale.
Eoyoque and a business partner decided that the west side of Monroe County was ripe for an authentic Mexican restaurant where customers can bring a date or the whole family. The concept for Mesquite Grill was born — offering affordable full-service authentic cuisine with a bar.
The restaurant at 910 Elmgrove Road opened Monday to a busy lunch crowd as it is directly across from Rochester Technology Park. The location used to house a frozen yogurt shop.
The 2,200 square-foot restaurant seats 64 people and is decorated with art from Mexico. Colorful hand-painted art chairs fill the space with cactus and even Frida Kahlo as the centerpiece theme.
