  1. Jesse Josserand

    I need a free wordpress restaurant theme with pics, menu, specials… all the basics for a very small, low budget mexican restaurant that’s willing to give me food in exchange for doing their site.

    • Rhys

      Try restaraunter

    • Anne

      Hi Jesse. Try to look from another perspective: install ANY free wordpress theme (use CCO public domain images if needed), install feature-rich (with pics, menu, specials) MotoPress restaurant menu plugin for WordPress (http://www.getmotopress.com/plugins/restaurant-menu-plugin/) for free and add your menu. Free resources + your personal efforts = cool online restaurant free gratis. Sounds spicy enough for Mexican restaurant? ;)
