Fronteras Mexican Grill is a nice-looking place, with lots of blown-glass lighting, comfortable and colorful booths, and a cool-looking bar, says Clare K. But don’t get her wrong—this is also the kind of place that serves you menudo as a side dish.
It’s really good, and so are the basics: delicious salsa and freshly fried tortilla chips. Chicken mole is just how it should be—rich, dark, complex, and not too sweet. Chicken enchilada is good eating.
And despite the nice surroundings and deliciously authentic food, it’s not expensive: Lunch for two comes out around $26 before tip.
