I LOVE the Frontier! This where the locals (Locos) go for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The green chile is the best, the prices are the best, the tortillas are the best. Food is always fresh, and service is fast.

Funky is putting it mildly. Truly, the Frontier is an Albuquerque icon, meant for people watching...not so much eating. I have to admit, though, that I do like those gigantic, greasy tortillas and huge cinnamon rolls. As for the rest of the food...so so. Still, if you're in the neighborhood (University area), stop in and enjoy the sights.

The Frontier is one place in Albuquerque where the green chili cheese burgers are cheap and delicious. Portions on meals are large and most dishes are filling and tasty. UNM campus is right across the street. If you enjoy people watching this is the place for an eclectic mix of professionals and students. It is usually noisy and crowded with table and parking spaces in short supply. The cinnamon rolls are worth the hassle though. A must try once place.
