Well, there was food.

When driving through new towns on vacation, we like to eat at the local places or somewhere that the locals like to eat. A hole-in-the-wall dive can be an excellent surprise. I asked where the best place was and La Frontera was highly recommended, especially the nachos. Because it was so late in... read more

MY family and I went in to get lunch, since we hadn't been in the restaurant in quite some time and enjoy some of the cuisine. However, upon entering the restaurant we were not able to sit at any of the 4 empty tables, as they were reserved. There were some other tables that were not cleaned off that we... More

We always enjoy eating here. The food is great and a good value for the money. The resturant is a little out of the way but worth getting off the I-40 for.

My wife and I ate there with some friends after a late night of dancing. Three of us ordered the menudo and one of our friends ordered a burger. Once our food came out, we all wished that we had ordered burgers. The menudo smelled the same way it does when it's still raw and the caldo was watered-down with... More

We came here looking for a "hole in the wall" good mexican restaurant that wasn't a large chain. We swung and missed this time. We arrived and were told to sit where we wanted. There were four of us, two adults and two kids. We ordered an enchilada plate, a kids taco plate, and a kids quesadilla plate. There was... More
