Cheap food,big portions! Food was good.. Tortillas were awesome! Enchiladas were really good with green chilies ! I've never been to a diner that had so much seating. It was not crowded when we went and was pretty quiet. It was casual, relaxed- great place to take kids. They has high chairs available.

Just a great place for good reasonably priced food. Breakfast is great... right across the the street from UNM, so lots of College students and staff.. the place looks kind of dumpy, but the food is good.

That's not an insignificant thing to us. We're locals and only over the past few yrs have we been visiting Frontier. We have never had a bad meal, never felt overcharged for the meal, and never had to wait an inordinate amount of time for our meal, REGARDLESS of what time we ordered. Frontier has become our fallback destination, where... More

This definitely brought back college nostalgia. Nothing was open around town at 5 am and we stumbled on this restaurant, lit up with a lot of activity. Decent food at reasonable prices and if you like spicy food try the hot chili in the pots behind the cold salsa. Very tasty and hot! Their homemade tortillas are delicious too. Nice... More

There is really nothing special about this place to be honest.it just lives on the hype and nostalgia of days gone by and also a great location. But as far as food, service, cleanliness, atmosphere, you can do much much better with little effort in trying. Sure the cinnamon rolls are good here but that isn't really a reason to... More

My family and I had lunch here after taking a campus tour of the University of New Mexico. The line appeared to be long when we first walked in the door, but there were at least six staff members taking orders, so the line moved VERY quickly and we had our lunch in a matter of minutes. The food was... More

Located right across from campus, this place feels like a well-worn university tradition. Good filling food, very friendly service, comfortable eating, good value. Vegetarian options.

We went on a Saturday morning and didn't have to wait in line very long. We ordered a sweet roll, huevos rancheros, and an omelette. We were able to have the sweetroll while we waited which was nice because the food did take a while. They were also out of chai tea. The food was excellent and very fairly priced.... More

Came to the Albequrque area to explore and to see the isotopes play. We're from California and hadn't tried the fronteir but my uncle said "since youre in albequrque, go to the fronteir.. thats the place you want to go". When we first got there the place seemed out dated BIG TIME, but I came to realize that was the... More

This diner is across from the University of new Mexico, so keep in mind, it is just a neat place to eat and enjoy the college kids. The prices are great and I always get the same thing...half order of chicken enchiladas with green chile stew on top! My husband always gets the hamburger and puts the green chile sauce... More
