This was the worst pile of slop I have ever had. The tacos had rancid greasy meat, tasteless pre-shredded cheese and wilted iceberg lettuce. The shells were from a box and not even warmed. Beans are watery and tasteless and the rice was crunchy. Three bites and I was done. My dog wouldn't eat it. Horchata was from a powdered... More

And when we told the waitress she just said, oh sorry thats gross.. Didnt offer to take it back, fix the order.. and... More

Growing up in Salt Lake City I had the pleasure of going to La Frontera. When I moved here to Washington County I was pretty bummed that I couldn't find good mexican food. Then I noticed one day that La Frontera is here as well. Needless to say: I am so satisfied. I definitely recommend this place to anyone that... More

Most time when I drive by, I wonder if they are open. I went in I was the only customer which makes me wonder if the place is any good. Surprise, it is quite good. Good food, fast service, and it's not too pricey. I More people came in while I was there, and another day I drove by and... More

I ordered some enchiladas...all I could taste was melted cheese. The enchiladas were more than smothered with cheese. The rice was dry. The beans were watered down.Bad atmosphere. Their food is not Mexican. It's "Americanized " Mexican food.

We eat at La Frontera Café at least once per month. It is not a Café, it is a great Restaurant and we love the owners also.

I read some of the negative reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I have yet to find good Mexican food in St. George. The salsa was more of a taco sauce, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very good flavor with a nice kick. I ordered a bean and cheese smothered burrito with cheese on top and the... More

We try Mexican on almost all of our vacations because it's usually very consistent, but this time it failed. This was the first bad Mexican meal I've had. My chicken enchilada was greasy and cold. My wife had a bean and cheese burrito that came under a thick greasy layer of cheese and had some kind of meat mixed in.... More
