Frontier was Perfect for what we were looking for. I found the place on TripAdvisor, which TA has never failed to point me in a bad direction for restaurants. We knew it was going to take forever because of the massive parking lot which was...More

We went there for dinner and breakfast. Loved the enchiladas and the breakfast burrito. The cinnamon roll are fantastic. We took home 3 dozen tortillas. It is a nice hybrid of fast food and sit down restaurant. Great value.

I thought the food was very good and I liked the atmosphere. Friendly people work there. If I lived in ABQ I would eat there again!

This is just a college Resturant Mexican food was nothing to write home! Walk up and order pick up at the counter. Tacos were precooked shells. Pork was spicy. 2 tacos were not worth the $4.20.

What can you say about the Frontier? It's iconic. The chile will burn but satisfy. The cinnamon rolls are legendary. The velvet paintings of John Wayne top it all off.

I came to Frontier after friends at the University *strongly* encouraged me to try the green chile stew. I did, and it was delicious. A bit spicy for me but too delicious to stop eating! Thanks for the great service, too.

Everytime I come to Alb, I always eat at this restaurant. Love the mexican food, hamburgers and french fries.

And don’t forget the burritos. This place is an Albuquerque staple across from the university, it has long hours and old Albuquerque feels. It sets the food stand for burritos and cinnamon rolls. Treat yourself after a play or before test!

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.
