This has been one of my favorite places since I was a kid. It's a great place to people watch, especially after 2am, when the bars close. The building was originally a lot smaller, with an art gallery at one end, but with the demand for more space, the restaurant purchased the rest of the building to accommodate the throngs of hungry patrons that walk thru the door on any given day. The entire menu is available at any hour of the day so whatever the craving, you can get it here.
When you walk in the front door, you get in the usually long line to order. The menu is posted on the wall above the kitchen. The line moves really quickly. I’ve never waited longer than 10mins to order...no matter how long the line is. Once you place your order and pay, grab your napkins and silverware and go find a table. When your order is ready, it will show on the digital reader board, located in every room. Go back to the front, pickup your tray of food and head back to your table to ENJOY! Inexpensive, GREAT food and no tipping! Awesome deal!
I recommend the #6 which is the huevos rancheros. Get it with green chili stew. When you pick your order up, go to the condiment station and add some green chili sauce to put on top…it’s in the soup holders. YUM! I always get a cinnamon roll to start off. It’s totally big enough for 2 people.The burgers are surprisingly delish, as are the fries. You can’t go wrong here. The prices are right and the food speaks for itself. I do have to admit that the after-hours crowd may be a little intimidating, but the freaks have to eat too!
The Frontier is located on Central and Cornell. You can’t miss it. There’s a hug sign on top of the building. Parking can be tricky as the parking lot behind the restaurant is tiny. Don’t even think about parking is spots for other businesses…you WILL be towed. There is a lot a block behind it that cost $1.25 per hour. It’s ALWAYS empty. You can also park on the street.
Go to www.frontierrestaurant.com for a menu and map.I'll attach pictures soon.
