“Good size portions, quick service”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went on a friday night, pleasantly surpised as it was not too busy. Anyway, got a booth, brought us chips and salsa...good light chips. menu with a wide variety of items. We got Quesedilla's and a sampler platter with wings, taquito's etc. food was good and hot. Tacquito's were a little over cooked. Beed was cold, price was average, with tip about $40 for 2 people.

FYI: Place is FROntera, not Fontera, and has another location in Mass.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This restaurant is fairly new, but I recommend it highly. The ambiance is beautiful, the service excellent, and the food delicious. Have eaten there three times and each time have had a wonderful experience.

“Muy bueno Frontera!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Housed in a recently closed Friendly's, Frontera Grill is a welcome supplement to the routine fast-food places on East Main street. Fontera is pretty typical Mexican restaurant...décor, menu, Thursday night Mariachi band and that's fine with us. The staff was friendly, service was quick, the food was decent (a tad too salty though), and the price was about right (10-14 for entrees). All important chips and salsa was very good as well.
Heading back tonight for an early supper. Welcome to town Frontera...I hope it works out for you.

“Table-side guacamole is incredible!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Great place, huge menu and very attentive staff. We ordered the table-prepared guacamole, which was just incredible. Fresh, a little spicy and really, really yummy. The only disappointing this for me what that I ordered spinach enchiladas and they came in a flour tortilla. Not what I expected, as usually enchiladas are made with corn tortillas. Other than that, very good food and service.

“Very good - huge fun taco variety”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Clean, great service-friendly, good prices. And food is wicked tasty- so many cool tacos to choose from. Use the thin authentic corn tortillas. Salsa is hot - chips perfect crisp. Menu a little large- would do better to pare down to things they do best.

Name of restaurant is actually Frontera Grill.
Another great east main meriden eatery!
