Food is always inexpensive, service fast and they're open from 5am to 1am ! They always have the Alibi local publication as well.

A great restaurant to enjoy New Mexican style food. I love their New Mexican combo plate which consists, Taco, enchilada, and beans with red and green chile. Do not forget freshly squeezed orange juice. This place is always crowded, however the service is fast.

Restaurant was recommended by hotel front desk. Fun place with good food. Cafeteria style ordering. Combination Hispanic and Western foods. Self-serve salsas. We were there on a Sunday evening and were able to park on the side street. With U of NM across the street,...More

Stopped in for a breakfast burrito and a cinnamon roll before departing the area. They were both well prepared, but the bar for Mexican food is pretty high in the area. In other areas of the county, the food would be considered exceptional. It's a...More

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.
