“I’m a little nervous but not scared,” said Iolan Gerardo Gonzalez, who just opened Vaquero’s Mexican restaurant on the Yates Center square.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was Monday, with quite a few community members in attendance.

Gonzalez first moved to Iola five years ago, and has been working at El Jimador restaurant since that time.
