Although I graduated from UNM years ago, my family and I continue to eat here. Students, professionals, and family friendly atmosphere.

I was a student at UNM 40+ years ago. Most of Albuquerque has changed dramatically but this place seems the same with great fresh flour tortillas, posole & green chile stew. It also still has the same great cinnamon rolls!!!

Not surprising for a restaurant that is next door to a university, the customers flow in and out for almost fast (southwest) food. Whatever you do, do not miss the cinnamon roll.

This place is always busy, but for good reason. The food is always fresh and good, at great prices. You'll have to hunt for a seat in this large restaurant, but try to go at off-peak times and you'll be fine. Parking is not easy!

The restaurant was recommended by a local friend. Good menu at good prices. Watch out the Tortilla soup is Spicy!!

Great place that pulled up by phone on nostalgic places to eat in Albuquerque, I had their burrito and it was delicious. It is a plate full of food.

Burger was so yummy! The Frontier roll tasted like my grandma made it. It was delicious! Would definitely go back.

We arrived on Friday and hit this local spot. Food was good and you got a lot for the price, can see why the locals like it. Not in the best part of town it seems.

Ate here twice during Albuquerque visit. Great cheap eats. Tons of food options. If there's something that you don't see, ask and they probably be able to make it. Great staff. Limited parking behind the restaurant.

Since this was on DDD, had to stop in for lunch. Found easy parking on the street. Super quick line. Had the green chile cheeseburger, son had the bonanza. Both were fantastic, as were the fries. If you have kids, make sure you ask for...More

Not that kind of eatery. Think "diner" not "dining", think "greasy spoon" not "silver spoon".

I don't think Frontier Restaurant has delivery service, but I'm not positive. Certainly have not seen any signs of delivery service any of the times I've been there.
