I'm here for a bit of the old crowd sourcing wisdom.
I used to live in Chicago for several years and I enjoyed Frontera Grill very, very much. I have now been away for several years and I am taking my girlfriend to Chicago for a little getaway. She has never been to the city and is a huge Rick Bayless fan. Obviously Frontera Grill was going to be on my list of things to do but many of the more recent reviews of Frontera have had me worried.
I don't know how much I trust Yelp but there seem to be a lot of disappointing stories. Mind you I am well aware of the wait times to get in and I'm not worried about that. What does worry me is some of the complaints about food and service. What do you all think? Is it just unsophisticated Yelpers who finally found out about Frontera? Or has the restaurant really been slipping?
