“Gross, don't waste time or money.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The food is bland. Salsa is gross. Service is slow, the food comes out quickly. They never come back to see if you need anything. Such as a drink refill. If you'd like a drink refill or your check. Make sure you have lots of patience.

“Just okay”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

When the father founder was still running this chain, the food was great and the service was wonderful. You can certainly tell now that it isn't being run the same.

“Great Mexican Food and a great price”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Best Smothered Burritos i've ever had.... Their large combination is a plethora of food for $9. You get a burrito, taco, tostada, enchilada, chile verde, beans, rice, and yummy tortilla.... Everything is good but the Chile Verde is the Best!!! My family has gone there for years. In fact every time they come to visit La Frontera is a Given to go out to eat

“A sad experience of Mexican food.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Our waitress was in such a rush, it was hard to understand what she was recommending and how to order exactly what we wanted. The food was nasty, spicy, and the tripe was rotten. I know Chilis and Cafe Rio may not be considered "authentic" but I'll take their foods any day over La Frontera.

“Cover it in sauce and cheese”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

My wife loves mexican food like this. I dont. La Frontera does it as good as anyone though. The fajitas my wife ordered were great. The small combination I had was okay.
