My Wife and I Celebrated Her Birthday with an Early Dinner

My wife wanted to have her birthday meal at La Frontera, so she and I went there in the late afternoon of March 18, 2015. La Frontera has been a family favorite for her and her two adult children. For me, it’s tolerable, as I married into the family just less than 10 years ago and it’s what they... read more

Where do I begin. It is much like food at a truck stop. I got a chimichanga and it was horrible. The cheese "melted" on top was chunky and soooo oily. There was no flavor to the dried out chicken inside my chimi and it didn't have any cheese inside the chimi. The guacamole tasted long expired despite enough lemon... More

If you're looking to try La Frontera for the first time, my recommendation would be YES! Yes yes yes! The food is great for the caliber- BUT, go to any other location. (Midvale is closest, and is a newer building. Same great food, better experiences. Also has a drive through.) This review is more helpful to those of you who... More

Great Mexican food at reasonable prices. Watch out as some portions are huge and it may be better to order off the A la carte menu. Friendly service, no alcohol.

We dine here frequently, the food is fresh, not overly spicy hot most of the time. If it is to mild for you just add the hot sauce they serve with chips while you wait for your order. My husband love the Mexican Steak. I alway have the bean and cheese burrito smoothered with chili verde and cheese. Friendly efficient... More

I love the food at La Frontera. The Smothered burrito is fabulous as is the cheese enchiladas. Quick service and whatever they put on their homemade chips is tasty. Seems like a seasoning salt. They have homemade tortillas and they are MUCH better than other Mexican restaurants who use store bought tortillas. Chips seem like they are homemade too. One... More

First of all this is not a restaurant for fine dining. It's a quick stop, family meal place for pretty good Mexican food. The service was welcoming and attentive throughout and food was brought within 3 min of ordering, hot and fresh. Had Fajitas and Chimichungas. Fajitas were actually delicious although I wasn't too keen on the Chimis. Also had... More

We pass their place and see many cars parking in front of their restaurant so we wanted to try. They serve good Mexican foods and we are very satisfied. Nothing fancy or romantic but foods matter right?
