Unexpectedly good for a chain

We typically stay away from chain restaurants, but the kids were in the mood for mexican and we just happen to be driving past the Frontera on Powers Ferry. This place has been there for a long time, but we've never tried it. It looks like an old Applebee's or something. We had very low... read more

The food is not that great but the corona margaritas are awesome. Plus throw in the live music on weekends and you have a winner!

This restaurant has got to be the worst Frontera that I've been to. My order was wrong, the rice was old and when I mentioned it to the waitress, she told me that it was the rice left over from lunch and they added a little water and microwaved it!! When we complained to the manager, he totally ignored us.... More

Friendly, although the food is typical of this type of chain restaurant. Good drinks and friendly staff.

I used to love their steak El carbone and in the past year they have significantly cut back on the quality of their skirt steak and you can really taste the difference. I dont know if anyone else noticed but thats not a good sign. The manager and waiter both admitted that they know this to be true but do... More

Casual dinning with great Mexican style- the food was authentic and excellent and a live Mariachi band was the icing on the cake.

My hubby LOVES the whole fish from this place. I have tried several entrees and do not like any so I eat chips & salsa only. I don't like seafood but the fish tastes good to me too

Was there for lunch last weekend. Sat at the bar and ordered a margarita. I was ready to order lunch when my drink was served but server seemed not willing to take the order. After waiting until after the margarita was gone, I stopped the server and asked her if I could get someone to take my drink order. She... More

This is place is really really good to hangout. They have got good atmosphere & ambience, but I gave 4 stars for the food. Not all of them in their menu are good, but some are really good. Their Fajita's are good, but I did not like their Nachos. I have been there morethan 5 times in this year, and... More
