My wife and I decided at the last minute to try the Frontera Grill which recently opened in Springfield. I called for a reservation, but they only do a "call ahead" system. Called when we were about ten minutes away (as requested), but were told they were not busy. Arrived and there is plenty of parking adjacent to the building. Greeted inside and seated by the hostess. They have booths along the windows and tables in the center of a nicely decorated, clean dining room. We were seated at a table (booths were all occupied) and provided with chips (very good) and salsa that had a slight kick (also good). A good amount of wait staff and our server was at our table within a very short time. Ordered drinks (a huge El Presidente at $12.00, and a Gin and Tonic at $5.25) which were both good. My wife ordered the "Marco Polo Tacos"($14.95) and I ordered the "Shrimp Fajitas"($17.25). My wife said her meal was very good consisting of small, bacon-wrapped shrimp, cheese, onion and cabbage in two corn tortillas. Meal came with beans, rice, Pico de Gallo and Cholla Garlic Aioli. My meal was excellent and consisted of larger shrimp, red and green sliced peppers, sliced onion, which all came served on a sizzling platter. Tortillas came in a separate container and were nicely warm. Rice (very good), beans (excellent) , sour cream, guacamole, and Pico de Gallo. We both brought some food home to save room for the "Fried Ice Cream"($6.50) which was a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream with a nice crunchy coating. It came served with sauces in a eatable bowl which had a cinnamon flavor. Perfect ending to the meal. Probably the best Mexican meal I have had in some time. Will definately be going back.
