Ovo Frito café started as a dream for an American dream.
Our restaurant was founded by Roberto Flores from Mexico City and Zinnia Iglesias from Belize, Central America.
In the effort to provide for our family, Roberto used to work two jobs – as a food delivery driver and a busser, and his wife Zinnia worked as a general manager at McDonald’s for over 13 years.
We decided to bring our experiences together and begin a new adventure – our own café!
Ovo Frito café finally opened its doors in Evanston on July 6th, 2017.
Today, we are parents to three boys and always involved with our bustling cafe.
