Frontera Grill | Print |
You’ve never stepped into a grill so energetic, so on the edge... so on the frontier... as Frontera Grill. Frontera swings casual, like an American grill. But it also rollicks with a vibrant, boisterous, Mexican rhythm. Its walls radiate sun-baked colors. The paintings and sculptures leap to your eyes and make you laugh. Together they invite you to an ever-young fiesta. And the food? Frontera Grill uses beautiful ingredients, often organic and custom-grown, to bring to you the bold flavors and immediate freshness that jump off the tongue–just as it does in Mexico.
