Authentic Mexican cuisine. Chips and salsa prior to your dinner is fantastic. Mariachia music on Wednesday.

“Outstanding Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

It is such a pleasure to have this restaurant in our neighborhood. We could come here once a week. Authentic Mexican food. Tacos are the best, especially the fish tacos, or their "World's Best Tacos". They offer a few special entrees, like their shrimp (?tequilla) with a green sauce that is to die for, and all the typical Mexican offerings. But nothing is typical here. All items that we have tried were outstanding. To start, they offer their own, warm homemade nachos with various levels of heat in their sauces. House margaritas are very good too. You will not be disappointed.

“Muy Bien”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Frontera Grill is one of those restaurant's that gets consistently better each time we go. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Don't let the outside of the building deter you from coming in (it is an old Friendly's restaurant), the inside is bright with Mexican flare. The food is fresh and very good. The drinks are nicely made and do not come with a huge price tag. We were there on a Saturday in late afternoon, and it was nice to see that they were very busy. I wish there was a way that they could accommodate outdoor dining in the nicer weather, (Meriden zoning laws??). When we are in the mood for Mexican, we always think of Frontera Grill.

“Good food, Great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Been here on several occasions with my wife and two young children. Service is very attentive and food is very good! I always lean towards the fajita combo with choice of flour or corn wraps or both. Comes on a sizzling hot skillet with peppers and onions all cooked to perfection. The side includes yellow rice, refried beans, fresh salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Very tasty and plenty for two. My wife orders the pork carnitas with the same side dish. Very tender and flavorful. My only issue would be the beef tacos. The filling is a bit greasy and the shells tend to fail at the bottom. Desert is ok. Overall this place is very consistent and won't break the bank.

“Muy divertido y delicioso!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I went here for the first time about a month ago and I have been back 3 times since! The prices are very reasonable. The place is very clean! Before this, I would typically go to On the Border or Mama Iguanas in Northampton for food like this, however this is easily my top choice! The service is decent, however on a busy night in the bar, you could get overlooked. Wednesdays there is live music in the bar area too, which is fun!

Everything tastes very fresh and not overwhelmingly salty. I have had a few of their margaritas, which are a favorite of mine. If you are a fan of guacamole, order their table side guac. for a fun experience. It is prepared on a cart right by your table! I really enjoy their fajitas. Their side of mixed vegetables, however, tastes like it was doused in butter, the only drawback I have noticed thus far.

There is a wide variety of seating, so I will be suggesting this place for birthday dinners and college/work friend get-togethers.
