REVIEWS OF Frontier IN New Mexico

Chelsea McCallister

The. Cinnamon. Rolls. Seriously, they are so good!!! And the western potatoes. Such a great, local place for breakfast! Or any time because they serve the cinnamon rolls all day!

Smitty Paling

Upon first approaching Frontier you don't know what you're in for. It looks small from the outside but the inside is old school, extensive, and very bustling. It sort of reminds me of Kat'z Deli in New York, at least from a vibe stand point. Definitely an experience! Once you order your number will be shown on a black screen sort of like at a pharmacy. The screens are throughout the restaurant which is an interesting sight to see. Food came out pretty fast.

Ruth Tietz

Great meal and so reasonably priced too for the amount of delicious food you are served. I had a breakfast burrito and it was so good and my husband enjoyed his pancakes. Perfect fuel for a New Mexico hiking adventure.

Kerry Chamberlain

What can you say about this place that locals don't already know? Great food (breakfast is my favorite). Always hot, fresh and delicious! Western hashbrowns cannot be beat!!!

resistent injun

Cinnamon rolls ✔ Homemade orange juice. ✔

undead_garrison

Amazing food, even though I'm bad with spicy hot food, I could tell it was good.

scott gillespie

My family loves the frontier! You always get great food for a great price. The clientele is not always the best as homeless people meander through the restaurant on occasion. The Frontier is one of Albuquerque's shining stars. We've been going here for over 30 years.

Kayla Bruskas

This is hands down my favorite place to eat in all of Albuquerque. The green Chile stew or sauce on literally any of the menu items will not let you down. I honestly have such a hard time choosing what to eat each time I visit here. You absolutely can’t go wrong with either the enchiladas, breakfast burritos, or green Chile burritos. I can’t help but enjoy the fresh squeezed orange juice or sweet roll when I come as well. Truly an Albuquerque classic and love the eclectic decor and themed rooms. Must have if you are in town!

They need to take down all of their portraits of that particular movie star who happens to be a coward in real life and replace them with portraits of a movie star who happens to be a hero in real life (Audie Murphy). Aside from this major flaw, a very great place. Be careful with that chile sauce on the counter. I indulged in it a little too much because it was so good and it nearly burned a hole in my intestines.

Frontier is the standard! Always consistent quality at any given time. Be prepared for the crowds if you head in for breakfast or on a weekend tho. Only reason I'm giving 4 stars this time is I think it's time for an update. The interior is pretty beat up and there is something to be desired about how many coats of paint restaurant walls should get. With as much traffic as Frontier sees, FRP panels would be the way to go for easy cleanup and fast repairs. Just my 2¢.

Gabriel Gutierrez

The green Chile stew is amazing on a cool evening.

Md.Naseef-Ur-Rahman Chowdhury

Cheap and good food. The best part is it is open till midnight.

vinay moharil

Good place. Big place. Quick service. Lots of options. Good for bunch of colleagues for a quick lunch bite. Parking seemed to be only roadside paid parking which could be a bummer.

Kara Summers

Always good for people watching. Breakfast burritos are the best.

Chris Romero

The Front is an iconic restraunt in ABQ. Try the Western style hashbrowns and of course the cinnamon rolls.

James Hill

This is a great local favorite. The frontier burrito is my favorite but the bean and cheese burrito is delicious too. And the homemade tortillas are the best.

Chris Matthis

Fast service, quick and dirty Mexican food, great low price kids options

Steve Miller

Great food, fast service, great location! A true Albuquerque experience! Also, best cross-section of our people of any restaurant i know of.

Frances Martinez

It tastes more like homemade than restaurant This place is very friendly and busy, but they have a lot of seating. The University of New Mexico is right across the street. They get in a lot of the college students. However, friendly. This restaurant is almost a whole block long. On Wednesday, I believe they still do, have chess players competing against each other. Anyone is welcome, small fee bring your chess game. Food is great! It taste more like homemade then restaurant food. Take home some tortilla with you, yum.

Agathe Guerrier

Old fashioned diner serving simple New Mexican food at affordable prices. The service and space is pretty basic but full of charm. The crowd was local and very diverse, from young teenagers with blue hair to elderly people catching up. A great Albuquerque experience!

Angelina whatsherface

Food was good enough. I had a two egg breakfast with ham. The ham was only fried on one side. Hash browns were kind mushy, not crispy, but still edible. I like my eggs over easy and they were cooked perfectly. They really should pay their employees more though. I saw an older gentleman bussing some really messy tables late at night and couldn't help but think that whatever they're paying him, it's not enough. He was doing a fantastic job, and was very helpful answering my questions. Give this man a raise!!

Charles Harris

Wonderful inexpensive New Mexican food. Love to stop by when in town.

Rita Carlson

It's cheap and delicious. I've tried several things on the menu, everything is great. A great choice if you feel like treating your friends or family to a quick meal.

C a r m e n

The food is seasoned perfectly. Very impressed with their clean silverware. Always get our order correctly and quickly. We come here about twice a month and have never walked away disappointed! Starting coming here in 1988, never a complaint. Thanks!!

Danielle O

Counter-serve restaurant on Historic Route 66 with lots of seating. The price is really great for the value. I had a bean and cheese burrito for $2 that was very tasty as well as a cinnamon roll that was delicious. I have heard that this place is at its best for breakfast, so I would love to come back.

MrMcAmazing

Everything is not expesinve. Really good place to eat. Nice portions. Tastes really good.

Ruth Tietz

Great meal and so reasonably priced too for the amount of delicious food you are served. I had a breakfast burrito and it was so good and my husband enjoyed his pancakes. Perfect fuel for a New Mexico hiking adventure.

Lisa Chehadi

It was soooooo good. I could not wait long enough to take a before picture of the rancheros, so all I had was an after picture. Sorry, not sorry.

Louise Stevens

My son could not wait to take me to Frontier Restaurant and it did NOT disappoint!! Very family friendly! The food was phenomenal! The prices are really low and the servings are huge. One soft taco fills up 1/2 a plate. There is a ton of seating but because Frontier is a historic landmark, it’s busy all the time! They serve every item on the menu during the entire day. We were there on Sunday morning at 9AM and by the time we left there was already a line but they move you through very quickly. It was my favorite place in Albuquerque and I can’t wait to go back. Don’t leave without a package of their homemade warm flour tortillas. I think they are only like $3.00!

Abe Korah

Great New Mexico institution. Have to eat here whenever I'm in ABQ.

Blanders McFlanders

Western kitsch is the prevailing theme to this old diner. The menu is basic but good. Cool little place

Kerry Chamberlain

What can you say about this place that locals don't already know? Great food (breakfast is my favorite). Always hot, fresh and delicious! Western hashbrowns cannot be beat!!!

Ashley Kerns

One of Albuquerque's staple restaurants that you have to go to for delicious food, like the carne adovada burrito or their buttery cinnamon rolls. I loved going here when attending UNM or just with family on an average day. I occasionally pick up a bag of the fresh made tortillas too for the house. They are so fluffy!

M C

I had never been here before. While on a business trip, my coworker introduced me to this wonderful spot up on knob hill. While in line, I asked my coworker what he recommended and his response was, “EVERYTHING!” I went with the Breakfast burrito with sausage. This behemoth was amazing: flavorful, filling and worth every penny. While my only plan was to finish the burrito, my coworker then said, “You have to try the cinnamon rolls.” I left feeling full but very satisfied. This will be my new go-to place when visiting. I highly recommend stopping and grabbing a bite here. The customer service is great. A must try!!!

Cristina Mitra

Such an institution! 5 dining rooms. A range of classic American (pancakes) and New Mexican food (frito pie anyone?). Lightening fast service and plenty of room for all to sit. Late night dining option in Albuquerque.

Erik Chavez

The food is amazing! The sweet rolls, the hand made orange juice, and the fresh homemade tortillas are the best. Quick service, great staff!

Scott Cypher

Overrated. Guacamole was thin. Enchilada was almost all rice and tortilla. Decent quantity though

resistent injun

Cinnamon rolls ✔ Homemade orange juice. ✔

Sarah

Read reviews and decided to stop in. Food did not disappoint. The green chili stew was delicious. We tried the beef enchiladas and frontier burrito. Didn’t have room for the cinnamon roll. Nostalgic and flavorful food.

Brittani McKelvey

First time, I had the burrito with just the green chile, cheese, and beans. Absolutely delicious. Then I went back because I knew if that burrito was good then the breakfast burrito there should be good ... and it was. Great place, really amazing food and very nice staff.

Paige Randolph

1 of my favorites, getting tortillas from here is a must always! Breakfast is always a favorite along with being able to choose from so many different drink choices.

Kitty Curtin

So much fun. The food was great. The service was outstanding. The prices were so reasonable.

Wendy Martin

Love this place ❤️ our friends took use here and now we keep going back great friendly service

Matea Hoover

All the food is super good, and the service is good. It is also super big so usually you can find a nice corner to sit in if you're wanting to study. The parking is a little difficult, but all the parking near the University is. Overall I love Frontier and the breakfast burritos are super good!

Jonathan Cox

Always my first stop in ABQ!!! Never had bad food from The Frontier. Try the fiesta burger GREEN. Never had a hard time finding close parking, metered on all days except Sunday.

Danielle Gustafson

One of the best restaurants in Albuquerque if not THE best. It's all about the comfort food here. Best tortillas ever!

s g

Passing through NM, stopped here because it was the only non chain fast food open around the area. Seemed trendy with the younger crowd late night. Took food to go, but it was still good at the hotel. The other dishes coming from the kitchen looked good. Nice and comfortable spot for eating in.

Sheryl Rose

Breakfast burritos are the best! The tortillas are amazing!

Darryl Mail

great breakfast , very fast good prices, owners are always working as hard as the staff, just check the prices of the orange juice, they are outrageous!! other than that great place

Eric Bland

The fresh squeezed OJ is AMAZING. so sweet.

Erin Mascarenas

Totally Albuquerque. Good food, good price. Try a sweet roll!

Vanessa Alter

Food is always great. Lots of places to sit. Counter service can be hit or miss.

Cassandra Costley

This place has fed me my whole life. It is so consistently good and it's a great atmosphere for visiting with family or studying! The green Chile chicken enchiladas will forever be my favorite!

Sasha De La Cruz

Frontier has always been a family favorite for years! Since I was little. Never fails us! Chili cheese fries and cinnamon roll are the best!

Megan Cheng

A UNM classic. Comfort food, a lot of space and a homey atmosphere.

Patrick Cougill

Cafe styled eatery next to U of New Mexico campus. Well-staffed and efficient. Has a lot of New Mexico styled favorites on the menu. I had a chicken enchilada topped with green chili stew. It was delicious. It would have been nice to be able to have a beer with that enchilada.

Jaye Martin

We come here at least once every time we visit Albuquerque. My husband is a local and it a must do for us. The flour tortillas are just delicious. For any tourist, you can always ask to have the chile left off. There is also lots of paintings on the walls to look at while you eating.

early curly green

The food here is excellent. Anything you order, and there's a wide variety, is going to be delicious and satisfying. Authentic southwestern cuisine.

Jonah Kelly

Food is great nice friendly atmosphere great customer service

Arcadius

This is great drunk food but no longer a 24 hour resturaunt. Still get a cinnamon roll they are amazing.

andre mendoza

Albuquerque staple. It's not all fancy and stuff so I could see people hating it for being old. It's home and was a place I always went to while attending UNM. It also used to be the place to go to after going out but they changed the hours which totally makes sense. Love the food here. Fiesta burger with red chili my favorite.

Shane Thomason

Love this place! Good food and low prices AND I've never had to wait long for my food!! These guys(and gals) are on it!!!

Rick Teshima

Very good food. Friendly. Good place to fellowship with dear believers.

B Harris

I never visit ABQ without stopping off here. Huge menu, but it's all done great. The ultimate diner experience.

Becky Cooeyate

It's been awhile since I've been here...but what can I say the burger i got was delish I couldn't complain.. for sure definitely going back good hang out spot to go too

Brett J

Great prices. Decent food. Standard NM style.

Que Sera Sera

Great little spot for some affordable and hearty Mexican. Got the food pretty quick. Think a step or two above fast food for overall quality. Missed not having chips and salsa just part of the experience.

Saul Solis

Good food. Nice hole-in-the-wall ambience. Popular and parking can get dicey when busy. Cinnamon rolls are excellent.

Garridon G

It is what it is... Which is fast, affordable, decent-quality food. I didnt gove it a full 5 stars because my omelette was a little light in flavor. It's a landmark type of place though and worth visiting at least once, in my opinion.

Kristi Betts

A must stop when in Albuquerque! The green chili burrito is a favorite for my family. Whether you come for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or simply a snack, you HAVE to top it off with their freshly squeezed orange juice and a beyond delicious sweet roll!

Kevin Hughes

A variety of good food here. Reasonable price. Don't be intimidated by a long line, the kitchen is very fast.

Melo Height

Came down from Boston just looking for something close to our Airbnb. Great food, options and prices and the servings are pretty large. Homey environment. Would definitely suggest. And their hours and perfect for any occasion!

Judi Poblano

Usually really busy. But the food is sooooo good! If you go, order the burritos. The tortillas are the best and if you've got extra $ get some extra packages of tortillas to take home. Worth it!

Tim Lewis

If you are near the university... stop here. Local favorite. Try the sweet rolls, the huevos rancheros w green chili stew or a burrito smothered in their sauce!!!

Will Turner

Great! I went here three times when I was in Albuquerque. Make sure to get a cinnamon roll.

Inglis Reynolds

The building located across the street from UNM is a clutch of strip mall spaces strung together. Parking can be atrocious. The decor is ancient and eclectic. You wait in line to place your order and then wait for your number to be called to pick up your order served on a combination of 70s era dishes and paper plates.

Alosha Tarasov

Frontier is pretty much an institution, it's late night diner that caters to the college and the "up late" people. The food is decent to good, its a pick your meal up at the window type place so there's no service really... I go from time to time if I'm in the area or am meeting up with someone around there, but I don't really make it a point to have it when I'm in town.

Chris Dillman

Quick service. Great double burger and fantastic green chile

Amber Baidwan

Such a awesome place to catch up with friends ! And awesome food! Get the sweet bun!!! Yum!!!

Matea Hoover

All the food is super good, and the service is good. It is also super big so usually you can find a nice corner to sit in if you're wanting to study. The parking is a little difficult, but all the parking near the University is. Overall I love Frontier and the breakfast burritos are super good!

Garrett Farley

Good hash browns, really good pancakes. Fast service, the omelet was a decent size but the eggs used to make it seemed to have flower mixed in to increase their volume. Overall decent value for the dollar.

willjstewart

It was a wonderful restaurant for breakfast. It was very kitschy and so unique. We also learned it was started by an Austinite so it made the connection even more poignant. Our boss was so happy to take us here to his old haunt.

Matthew Antinarelli

If you're looking for a local taste of Albuquerque, you will not be disappointed. The ambience is casual and light and shows signs of heavy use. Overall pleasant.

DVS1 Chicago

If you want to relive your days of eating food in a filthy high school cafeteria but be charged 3 star restaurant prices for the privilege of eating there then look no further.

Michael Quintana

1st time here for my son and I. Coffee was great. Everything thing else was so so. Probably wont go back.

Mady Holmes

Frontier always has great eats and fast service.

Kit Hazard

Stumbled onto this gem randomly while in town and looking for something late night on Sunday when nothing else was open. Was surprised by the quality of food, burgers are awesome, burritos even better, and for the price, you can't go wrong! Definitely a future stop when I'm back in town!

Simon Matias

First time to Albuquerque and was recommended this place from a friend and I loved it! Vibe was good. Food was good. Customer service was good. Over all, I loved my first experience at this place.

Jeff Munn

I was sent here by the car rental dude as THE place for lunch in albequerque, and was told to get their signature item: Frontier Burrito. It was like, eh, ok. It was huge, which is probably why it's popular across the street from a college. But honestly it tasted like $3 of cheap meat and cheese in a microwave. And now I have a stomach ache.

jesiree session

I've been there multiple times. Will keep going back too! The food is tasty and affordable and they move fast. The place is always bustling but you'll never wither waiting for your food. They offer free iced water to every patron and you get to watch the employees hand make the tortillas while you wait for your meal.

Elysia Pacheco

Food was good, the bathrooms were dirty. Place is old and needs to updated. Safety was an issue. I was told by others customers not to leave anything around, that people walk in and take things. Keys, wallets, laptops ECT.

Jason Lamberth

Love the food here. Frontier burger is tasty. The place can get busy at times, but you never have to stand in line long to place your order.

Ingrid Hamblin

Have always enjoyed Frontier. Their cinnamon rolls are beyond words good. The atmosphere is always upbeat. Fun fun place.

Teresa Sterck

Good yet inexpensive Mexican food.

Christopher Elisondo

Great deals of you come on one of the days when they have their specials on, good portioned food for the price, would recommend something with green chilies in it

Dalia Salinas

I love Frontier's!!! Amazing staff, amazing food

Ken & Deb Layman

This is a wonderful place! Loved the atmosphere and the food was really great and fresh!

Paul Lovato

Great authentic New Mexican cuisine. Able to handle large groups of people during the Balloon fiesta.

cicchimichael cicchimichael

One must order at a counter some times the line can be quite long but it doesn't take very long to get to the counter. Wait for the green light and the staff will wave you up. They will give you a number and you pick up some of the best breakfast in town. Green chili may be the best in Albuquerque Fresh squeezed orange juice is wonderful here. I would give it 5 stars if we did not have to wait in line. This is a huge and popular restaurant.

Duane Ruth-Heffelbower

We were sent here by our Air bnb host to experience a truly Albuquerque place. It is by the university and set up for high volume. You step up to a window to order and pay, then sure until your number pops up on the screens. The food is traditional southwestern and done well.

John Mitchell

A go to place if your are in town. Fast food and friendly people. Both meals were great.

donna Villarreal

A must go for anyone visiting Albuquerque New Mexico. The green chilies are roasted right there on the spot when fresh and the plates are big. A definite new Mexican food treat right on Central Avenue across from the University. Fast service and good food. Try the delicious And fattening cinnamon rolls! Yum.

Jeffery Davidson

Very good food here. Not the greatest atmosphere, but it wasn’t designed around that. It is ideal for a somewhat quick sit down place with good New Mexican breakfast food. This is the other restaurant associated with Golden Pride, and I would suggest this one if you are looking for a sit down place.

Lester Deleon

It depends what you like to eat I always go for green enchiladas and a cinnamon roll.

Simon Matias

First time to Albuquerque and was recommended this place from a friend and I loved it! Vibe was good. Food was good. Customer service was good. Over all, I loved my first experience at this place.

Brenna Kathleen

It's been one of my favorite restaurants for many years. The quality has always been consistent & the food is delicious. The tortilla stew with chicken has always been a favorite. Whether you're looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a dessert (the sweet roll is very good) this is a good place to go.

dale montoya

My food is always hot and ready timely even at midnight after a show. Spicy Green Chile on the Western Hash Browns. Love the tortillas. Ice water ready to go.

jesus zavala

Great vibe and really good burgers and green chile stew. Too good

Nick Aquilino

One of the best places for New Mexican food!

Ruth Perea

One of my favorite places in Albuquerque! My granddaughters too! Very friendly employees, GREAT tasting food, big portions and very affordable prices!

Patrick Smith

Its busy but organized very well. The food is diverse and fairly priced. This is not a fancy place but a lot of fun.

Jeremiah Hoppman

Oh man. Frontier is one of my favorite places to go! Usually on a Tuesday night, although highly occupied, the staff maintain a professional, yet friendly demeanour and continue to assist and serve the customers with a smile. And the food is top dollar too. Highly recommend the breakfast burritos. Worth every cent. The only downside is the location... but let’s be honest here... Central is just a place. You quickly forget that, when you walk through the doors.

Miriam R.

Love this place. An Albuquerque classic and landmark. Not a bad dish on the menu so you'll love them all. The enchiladas are my favorite mainly the chicken with red chile but any combo is great. Service is great and employees are friendly too. You'll love this place if you don't already...

Matt A

Wish we had a place like this back in AZ. Great food, fantastic prices, amazing green chili, daily specials. Better than anything we've had in a week here. Go there now

Francisco Bustamante

Great food. Good prices. Lots of room to sit.

Dan Vigliotti

Excellent. Such a different experience. If you are from Atlanta, this is the Varsity of Albuquerque! Good food fast with a very friendly staff and Western atmosphere. We tried the Frontier burrito - excellent.

Bob Geary

Great food, great price! The orange juice is freshly made on site and is delicious.

Jane Lu

Best New Mexican food spot in ABQ. Open super late too. Feels so alive even at midnight.

Carolyn Ramirez

Service to order always fast, not long for wait. Disappointed in my 1/2 order cheese enchilada. Rice was 4 out of 10, not much flavor. Green chili: Choice was chopped or stewed. Chose stewed -more potato than chili. Was okay at best. $5.70 for one cheese enchilada, $1.95 for drink. Total 8.25. Could have done better at Wendys/ Macs, or BK for the price.

Lanner Playing in a Autistic 'Verse

Classic Albuquerque, absolutely a needed stop for folks from out of town, and a popular place for the UNM student. Food is excellent, and very New Mexico. The staff is efficient. The decor is great to just stop and look, some hidden "gems", as it were. 10 out of 10 recommend.

Christina McDonogh

This is a unique location that has many options for food including Mexican food and hamburgers. It has plenty of seating as it is a favorite for college students. The food is served very quickly and is well-priced. The serving sizes are generous and the meals come with a side of fresh tortillas.

John M.

great value food. Huge selection and huge dining rooms. Street parking is been available each time I've been there. Convenient for late night dining in a town not known for late night dining. I enjoyed my half order of enchiladas.

Giovanni A

BEWARE!! MSG ALERT!!! (MONO SODIUM GLUTAMATE) In Use Restaurant at this restaurant according to former employees. I wrote a review on Yelp little while ago and since Yelp representatives are Friends with this owner and dine there themselves, took down my review. So if you don’t want to be consuming MSG which is a (Neurotoxin) and are Allergic to MSG don’t eat here...

Alexandra Hagerman

Passed a few cute and trendy restaurants on the way to this one because of the 4.5 average rating. The women’s bathroom was disgusting, the food was okay and the area was sketchy. Someone asked us for money as soon as we walked out. The microwaved cinnamon roll left a lot to be desired.

Babu John

Wonderful New Mexican food, a lovely place to have a burrito.

Kelly Dunn

As a student, I'm always happy to see affordable options, and when you combine that with efficient service, good food, friendly staff, and attentive management you really can't beat this place. It knows exactly what it is, and it does it very well.

Frank Crockett

Everytime I visit this specific restaurant, no matter my physical or mental condition. I always love the food. It's not only is it good for the soul. It tunes up the mind and body as well. At times it could be crowded, but that's not a problem for their well trained ready to work employees. Honestly I've gone through there at time when I seem big crowd that I thought there never going to get all these people feed in a timely matter. I believe that they will run out of place before they fall behind.

Christina Lister

I ordered the Mexican combo with chopped green chile and could barely finish it, the portion was huge! So tasty and I love the cafeteria style dining. I was so hungry I didn't get a picture.. but believe me, it was beautiful!

Meghan Thomas

Always wonderful food and quick service. Love the open dining and seating option. Best cinnamon rolls in town!!! Yum!

Mary Bates

Went there last year when I was out for the Balloon Festival. I don't remember what I ate but I was thinking that I liked it. But when I went again I was wondering what I could have possibly liked because going this year was some of the worst food I've ever eaten. Very fast service though and that's what I'm giving the stars for.

Kelly C.

A delicious Albuquerque staple that I'm happy to work by and can eat here all the time!! Green Chile stew and breakfast burrito with the hot Chile from the pot in the lobby on top!

kelley hellman

£it's of OLD PICTURES, native American rugs, paintings, bowls, etc. The food was yummy! This is a cafeteria type restaurant, yes, it is cleaned, the food is great, not fancy! Yum!

Bradford Hellman

I love their huevos rancheros with green pork Chile. Just as good as 35 years ago. Try the cinnamon rolls too!

L González

Food was ok. Not spicy at all which was a disappointment after being told by the order taker that it was. Had never been to a restaurant that doesn't give free chips and salsa. Tortillas were very good. Tasted homemade. Parking is something to improve on. Also I'm guessing the building next door is where they prep foods and wash the pots and pans. Was watching carts of pans being wheeled from one building to the other. Thinking the whole time why they weren't covered.

Gail Tafoya

After The Breaking Benjamin concert was a no brainers to head on over to the frontier. Ordered a carne adovada burrito and this bad boy(cinnamon roll) . As always great food at great prices . This place is a staple to go to after concerts. But its also just a nice place to go for so good ole food.

Naoshad Zaman

Stopped in for a burrito after being gone for years and it was just as amazing as I remember!

Krista Almy

Food was good. Service was quick. Would come back again. My only disappointment was I ordered one of the amazing cinnamon rolls, they asked if I wanted it warmed up but they put it in the mircowave to warm it up and did it too long so it got hard.

Maggie McClain

Fresh, fast food 24/7. Breakfast, tacos, cinnamon rolls & more. We always stop in to eat when we are in the area. Plenty of seating & delicious food.

John M.

great value food. Huge selection and huge dining rooms. Street parking is been available each time I've been there. Convenient for late night dining in a town not known for late night dining. I enjoyed my half order of enchiladas.

vanessa lott

The food is good! Especially their cinnamon rolls

Avery Beaton

Fast casual place, making delicious fresh tortillas to order. Order breakfast burrito and green chili stew it is just ok. But worth checking out for the full local experience.

Dolores Stevens

I came for the famed sweet rolls and was not disappointed. My sweet roll was buttery and delicious. We parked in a lot behind the restaurant that advertised free parking for the first 45 minutes. We arrived in the early afternoon on a Thursday and the restaurant was not busy at all. We were able to order our food, eat, and get back to the car with time to spare. Given the huge number of tables here and the signs warning of wait times, it looks like this place can get swamped with people during busy times.

Beyond Reality

I've always loved the frontier stop by and get a great carne adovada burrito for a great price!

Alejandro Trujillo

How are people impressed by this food? I’d call it mediocre. Service was friendly though and location is nice.

Ellie S

The breakfast burrito with Carne Adovada was utterly delicious, and the orange juice was fresh squeezed. Great start to the morning, and I'd go back without hesitation.

Matt

From fried chicken and ribs to breakfast burritos they have a good variety. I have yet to go here and have had a bad experience with either service or food. Everyone is super friendly and their food is always fresh and hot. Breakfast try their cinnamon rolls or a breakfast burrito.

J B

Never disappoints. Line moves quickly so dont be intimidated by it.

Gaurav Kumar

Orange juice is best, also chilly is good if you can handle it

Ricardo Hernandez

Good affordable and a great place to get something to eat. They have traditional new Mexican food and there sweet rolls are awesome. They open real early great place for doctors in the down town area or just people that work graveyards that want to eat some good food. I believe they open at 4:30am, the staff is friendly and old school very good vibes . They have a counter ordering system and they have screens that tell you the number that's coming up all over the restaurant pretty easy to know when your order is ready any where in the restaurant. Lots of places to sit large groups small groups or alone. Students of unm and around like to go to study and hang out but also alot of old school people hang out have there coffee and sweet roll in the morning, and every one in between.

Monroe

Hands down the best place in town for amazing and fresh food! I highly suggest the frontier burrito. Thank you for never changing all these years!

Love this place. Something for everyone and very affordable. Breakfast on point! Best warm salsa in town.

Huevos Rancheros and the Breakfast Burrito were out of this world. The OJ was fresh squeezed.

Super cool location, I came here on a recommendation from a "traveler", I was not disappointed. I ordered the beef frontier smothered burrito. Excellent flavor, something I've been searching for since moving to Houston From Colorado. I found it! I got mine to go because I was traveling and tired but the inside nostalgic setting and large dining area makes me want to go back and dine in.

An Albuquerque classic that never fails to satisfy. The cinnamon rolls are legendary.
