We used to eat here once a month or more. Loved the chicken burrito -- smothered. There is lots of meat and the smothering cheese is so good. I think the price DOUBLED the last time we were there. Which is why it is the last time we went :(

I have several friends who say this is the best Mexican restaurant. Whenever I go with them I always wonder if they have ever been to another Mexican restaurant. Its better than Mexican fast food but I've been to several that are better. Their daily specials are a good price but the only time I go here is when one... More

We had a lunch meeting there, service was good, food was good. Chips were very good with salsa.....other than a bit spicy today, but still very good.

Full menu, daily specials, and fast service. The seating is tricky, they are set up kind of weird so you are weaving through tables to find your own, but otherwise its a good experience.

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 like... 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
