If you like local joints (as we do) this place is for you. Good breakfasts in the university/Nob Hill area. A true gathering place for all walks of life. Couldn't visit Albuquerque without a visit.

Good basic food. They didn't officially put my daughters on the ticket so I had to reorder after the meal came. Quick service. Fancy drink machines.

Several of my family members have attended UNM so we have gone to the Frontier (we call it the "Front Tire" -- aren't we cute?) often over the years. Casual, reasonable and just plain fun. Oh and try the Frontier rolls!

We have been eating at the Frontier for years. It as some of the best green chile we have ever eaten. The restaurant is really funky with cowboy paintings in each room. There is usually a big line, especially on weekends but it moves quickly. Our favorite things to order are the Frontier sweet roll, breakfast burrito, and juevos rancheros.
