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

We had a large family reunion breakfast there and not only was the food outstanding but it was so great not to be rushed and they provided a super atmosphere for the family get together. It was a terrific experience.

Friends took us here after a night at Tractor Brewing. They told is its a institution in the area. It looks like a kitchy diner filled with western items on the walls. The menu is pretty big; breakfast to dinner. There is something for everyone. The food arrived quick and was just as expected. Large portions and the burrito was... More

Although co-workers attempted to steer us away from here we went anyway. The adovado burrito is great the the green chili burger one of the best in town. We get food to go and eat under the trees at the UNM across the street. We go here a couple of times a month.

Great food at a great price. College kids, homeless folks, cops, octeganarians, soccer moms with kids: everybody loves this place! Wide selection of tasty food. Tacos? Pancakes? Salads? Burgers? All at the same time!! On the same plate if you want!

Whilst it wasn’t what we expected we thought it was good- a classic student dive. The Frontier was a fast food restaurant that sold burgers and Mexican food. You ordered at the counter found a seat and watched the screens for your number, and then you went to collect it. The portions were large, the food was good and the... More

The Frontier Restaurant is an iconic eating place while in Albuquerque. Situated across the street from the University of New Mexico there area always a great variety of people watching! The food is always tasty and a MUST is the Frontier Roll (share with someone). The green chile stew and posole are terrific options along with enchiladas and eggs. Good... More
