This is small BYOB restaurant with terrific food. Despite the great menu, they'll mix and match to order. We had the salmon tacos and fish tacos - excellent. Large portions. Check it out.

Mind-blowingly good, authentic Mexican food at a fantastic price. It is hard to find authentic Mexican food that isn't overpriced or bad quality. La Frontera is the perfect mix.
