“Favorite place to grab a breakfast burrito!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

This place is a local favorite. In my opinion they have the best breakfast burritos in the city. I always grab a burrito before I fly out of ABQ.

“Great food, Great prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Our family flew into Albuquerque to begin our SouthWest vacation. We met some friends who live there and they suggested the Frontier Restaurant. We're glad they did. The service was quick even though they were quite busy (they are located across the street from the University). I had seen this restaurant featured on Man Vs. Food with Adam Richmond and tried the Green Chili Burger - very good. My wife and children all enjoyed their meals and liked the coke machine that allows you to make your own flavors of soda. The western decor added to the experience - guns, Indian blankets, pictures of John Wayne, etc. Met one of the owners who was very pleasant. We enjoyed this place so much that when we flew back home from Albuquerque 10 days later, we decided to eat here again. I tried something else off of the menu and was pleased. The Cinnamon rolls were fantastic (get them heated). Can't say anything bad about the place.

“So New Mexico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is an order at the counter, then they call your number- I had the Green Chili Tortilla Soup with Chicken and it was AMAZING!! The place was packed even before noon and if I could have brought back a gallon of the soup on the plane, I would have! Definitely a 'local' spot that has all of the NM flavors you would want-

“Favorite Go- To every week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Freshly made to order food - I don't know how they do it because it is always busy. Fresh squeezed OJ, killer cinnamon rolls, fresh Hatch chile, best soft & fluffy tortillas, best burritos. But most of all the owners & family are always there welcoming you. Don't miss in ABQ.
