At El Motor Mexican Restaurant, the focus is on family.

The four members of the Martinez clan who run the Frankfort restaurant are united by a common goal: encouraging area families to keep coming back for flavorful Mexican cuisine made from scratch.

“My dad has been cooking for more than 25 years,” El Motor owner Ernesto Martinez said. “He’s always been our cook, so about two years ago he wanted to start up his own restaurant, and we’ve all worked in the restaurant industry — me and my sister and my brother.”
