The salsa served upon being seated was tasty & spicy. Our food was served & the carne asada was 3 small tacos. Very chewy steak. Fajitas were the smallest we've ever been served. Chimichangas were okay.

First of all a Mexican restaurant that doesn't serve shredded beef.....anything. I knew I was in the wrong place. To be fair this is my first negative review. My husband said his chicken taco and chicken enchilada were "fine." He did not like the chips or salsa and thought the beer was not cold enough. I decided to order the... More

This was the worst pile of slop I have ever had. The tacos had rancid greasy meat, tasteless pre-shredded cheese and wilted iceberg lettuce. The shells were from a box and not even warmed. Beans are watery and tasteless and the rice was crunchy. Three bites and I was done. My dog wouldn't eat it. Horchata was from a powdered... More

And when we told the waitress she just said, oh sorry thats gross.. Didnt offer to take it back, fix the order.. and... More

Growing up in Salt Lake City I had the pleasure of going to La Frontera. When I moved here to Washington County I was pretty bummed that I couldn't find good mexican food. Then I noticed one day that La Frontera is here as well. Needless to say: I am so satisfied. I definitely recommend this place to anyone that... More

I ordered some enchiladas...all I could taste was melted cheese. The enchiladas were more than smothered with cheese. The rice was dry. The beans were watered down.Bad atmosphere. Their food is not Mexican. It's "Americanized " Mexican food.

We eat at La Frontera Café at least once per month. It is not a Café, it is a great Restaurant and we love the owners also.
