“Good, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Excellent waiter, attentive staff, but entrees were average. Chips and salsa were very good, but both the Pollo Tropical and the Pollo a la barbacoa could use a sharper seasoning or two. The Pollo's chicken breast was very tender... but the barbacoa's "secret sauce" was unremarkable. The fried bananas for dessert were yum! Restaurant is situated in a lonely location in Parole (next to a liquor store) and would benefit from a move.

“Great Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

My friends and I had lunch at Sin Fronteras on Saturday. The restaurant is located in an older strip mall, but we found a great surprise inside - a well decorated place with great food. The owner visited with us twice during our visit, I had a great Cuban sandwich, and the service was very attentive. A great choice for lunch in the neighborhood - steer clear of the neighborhood chains and give Sin Fronteras a try!

“A Nice Find In Crabtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Read the reviews on this place and thought we would give it a try. Don't let the outside fool you, though there it isn't great for parking and it looks "iffy" from the outside, it's all about the food and service and I must say it was excellent! Great homemade main courses, the chips and salsa were good and the drinks were excellent. Next trip though we will be stopping to try another item on their menu!

“Hard to believe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

It is hard not to parrot everyone else about this restaurant but it is excellent. Not hard to find for locals on forest drive behind shoppers. The food is tender and plentiful. Fine for kids. Someone earlier said Margaritas were expensive - I totally disagree they were huge and they were 8.50. The only complaint I have is this place is popular enough that parking is a problem but be patient it is so worth the wait. I rarely give anything 5 stars but this is worth it.

*** Oh yeah try the Barbocoa Beef or Pork so cool comes out wrapped in paper and melts in your mouth,
