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?

My standard choice for this restaurant is the smothered burrito with cheese and onions and a side of their mexi fries. The mexi fries are basically a sliced potato deep fried and then dusted with paprika. Tonights trip was not up to par. While the burrito had the same flavor, it was barely warm on the plate. The potatoes were... More

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Seems like a sister restaurant to the La Puente and Las Glorias restaurants. If I go here, I always order the 3 smothered burritos with cheese and onions. Chile verde is always good.

I've been a raving fan but over the past couple of years, they've gone downhill fast. Food quality, service and cleanliness have descended to an unacceptable level. Food tonight was served cold. I kindly sent it back and it was returned with a hotter plate, but still food that was cold. We were starving so we just ate it and... More
