“Well, there was food.”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

When driving through new towns on vacation, we like to eat at the local places or somewhere that the locals like to eat. A hole-in-the-wall dive can be an excellent surprise. I asked where the best place was and La Frontera was highly recommended, especially the nachos. Because it was so late in the day, we were thrilled to eat anything. Now we wish we had placed higher standards on what we put in our mouths.
Perhaps it was the late afternoon hour, but there was no one else in the place, which should have been an indicator. However, the person who waited on us was excellent, very friendly and listed the menu items that she liked. Of course, we got the much talked of nachos. The food came out quickly, which was a perk.
The food we did get was drab and poorly seasoned. The nachos had about a 1/2 pound of colby jack cheese microwaved on top of taco meat and stale chips. The portion size was huge, but after the first few bites, we didn't want to eat it anymore. In fact, we didn't want to eat much of anything anymore. I was surprised that the to-go "boxes" were just plastic plates with aluminum foil.
All in all, it wasn't a great visit. Friendly staff doesn't fill an empty stomach. We won't be stopping there when driving through again.
