Most time when I drive by, I wonder if they are open. I went in I was the only customer which makes me wonder if the place is any good. Surprise, it is quite good. Good food, fast service, and it's not too pricey. I More people came in while I was there, and another day I drove by and... More

I ordered some enchiladas...all I could taste was melted cheese. The enchiladas were more than smothered with cheese. The rice was dry. The beans were watered down.Bad atmosphere. Their food is not Mexican. It's "Americanized " Mexican food.

We eat at La Frontera Café at least once per month. It is not a Café, it is a great Restaurant and we love the owners also.

I read some of the negative reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I have yet to find good Mexican food in St. George. The salsa was more of a taco sauce, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very good flavor with a nice kick. I ordered a bean and cheese smothered burrito with cheese on top and the... More

We try Mexican on almost all of our vacations because it's usually very consistent, but this time it failed. This was the first bad Mexican meal I've had. My chicken enchilada was greasy and cold. My wife had a bean and cheese burrito that came under a thick greasy layer of cheese and had some kind of meat mixed in.... More

The food we very similar, but not quite the same. Still very good for a good price. I'll go again the next time I'm in town. The decor is more modern and contemporary so it has a different vibe than the ones in SLC.

Love this place great chili Verde that you cant really find any place else. Loved the smothered burritos. La Fontera is all over utah. We taveled all over the southern part of the US and found ourselves looking forward to heading back to Utah for La Fonteras smothered burritos.

I'm quite surprised by many of the reviews here. I've eaten at just about every La Frontera location (just order the cheese enchilada on a flour tortilla with a side of papas well done at any location and thank me later), and the St. George one is by far the best. My son, who is kind of picky, but will... More

Started out with cold chips and colder salsa. It comes in a squeeze bottle right from the fridge. The chips have a funky taco seasoning on them. Yucky stuff. My tamales were poor quality with dry pork inside of them. The beans were a pile of watery mush but the rice was edible. My husband got the carnitas and they... More
