I'm a student at UNM and eat here at least once a week. I usually eat the beef enchiladas with green chili stew and two eggs cooked over-medium. The sweet rolls are good as well, make sure to eat them immediately because if they sit then they get hard. Also, eat the tortilla in the beginning - it's best when... More

We stopped in while on vacation for dinner, there is scattered parking behind the building. The prices are great and there is a good diner vibe to the location/menu. Its a huge place and looks like a few neighboring business had their wall knocked down to expand further and further. Being on a college campus there was plenty of young... More

The food was very good and portions were large. Great place to grab a bite to eat if going to Popejoy Hall or other events at UNM.

I used to live in New Mexico, and I really miss the green chile. We saw other reviews for the Frontier and decided to try it on the way to the airport. The burrito was just what I needed. Two of us shared one, and we had enough to eat. It's an interesting place--not fancy and no table service. They... More

Our perfect introduction to southwestern cuisine. They let me try both the red and green chile with my chicken enchiladas, I recommend the green. A $3.45 burger that tastes that amazing? Holy crap. Do yourself a favor and eat here.

Good service, tasty food and great prices. A good place to stop if you're in the area. I went twice on my three day stay in Abq.
