A day late on our monthly small business feature since yesterday was #BabyB’s second birthday so I wasn’t in the office, but I promise it’s worth the wait for the delicious local business! It’s our date night fav.
The Details: Pack’s Sol Bistro | Paco Greenwell, Owner | In Business: 7 years

Tell us about your business… What do you do? Full service bar and restaurant that features 2 private party spaces.
What makes your business unique/special? Unique, made-from-scratch menu featuring all original recipes.
What item/service on your menu or in your shop do you just LOVE and think everyone needs? Everyone should try the chicken meatloaf or southwest egg rolls. And guacamole if you are a fan.
In what way have you gone above/beyond in the past for a customer? We have made a special food feature for several of our regular guests for their birthday. (Actually did this today) We also have Tervis cups for our most loyal bar regular with their name on them. We have also featured art from several local artists.
What is the coolest thing you’ve ever had a client do for you? When hosting a charity event, some regulars purchased a painting they knew we liked and gave it to us to hang in the restaurant.
What tool/equipment/or other vendor could you not imagine doing business without? My staff! They make it all happen.
What other local business do you just LOVE? Why? I would rather not single out any. We always try to support any and all that we can.
Tell us about YOU… WHY did you choose to do what you do? I love to make people happy. There’s no better way to the heart than through the stomach.
When did you know you wanted to go into this business? I didn’t choose it. It chose me. I needed a job at 18. I started as a server and had my first management job at 18. I just took to it naturally. Thru my time I discovered my passion and ability to cook and come up with recipes. I love the combination of art and science in cooking.
What are you passionate about outside of your business? My wife and I are avid pool players and St. Louis Cardinal fans.
Describe your PERFECT day… 85 degrees without a cloud in the sky, hanging in the pool with my beautiful wife, my dogs, our family and friends. Music blasting, food on the grill and laughter all around.
