I've been eating at Frontier for more than 30 years. The carne adovada is mouthwatering, the fresh squeezed OJ is phenomenal and the hand made fresh tortillas are soft and fluffy. Even if the line is wrapping around the building, the service is so fast,...More

Fiends told us a must stop for breakfast was the Frontier Restaurant.. At first we were saying to ourselves this placed doesn't look like anything special. The lines and full parking lots was our first hint that it indeed was different. We ordered what everyone...More

Not that kind of eatery. Think "diner" not "dining", think "greasy spoon" not "silver spoon".
