Food was bland. I had pork carnitas. They were dry with little flavor. The refried beans were dry and baked to the plate. Both my meal and my wife's were to include pico de gallo but we had less than a teaspoon each. Flour tortillas were OK. Chips were good but salsa lacked flavor and was not at all spicy.... More

I love this place. The chips and salsa are great, the queso is great, and the food is fantastic. The service is generally very good as well, and we almost never have a wait.

We have tried many Mexican restaurants in the Kansas City area and have never found one that can surpass the quality of the food and the speed of the service at Fronteras. It is always busy when we visit, but we rarely wait long for a table. They have super guacamole (and you can order just a small dish), several... More

If you want Mexican, it's good. We had exceptional service. Perfect for families I had fish which was excellent. The Fajitas were good

The food is amazing. The margaritas even better. I can't stop going to this place. My wife and I share the fajitas. And there is food leftover. That is how much food you get. Everything is authentic. Be sure to do the Margarita tour.

Salsa was average, nothing that made me say WOW this is amazing. Again just first visit service was good. Will go back because service was good and good was good and service at... More

Our group of 4 tried Fronteras Mexican restaurant for the first time and we came away very pleased with our food and service. We visited the Shawnee location after learning that the Olathe location burned down. Closer for us, as we live in St. Joe. Anyway, we are always looking for the next best Mexican restaurant, and this is definitely... More

Been going here since they've opened. Taco Tuesdays with friends is so much fun! The servers are more like family than servers they take care of you it is a wonderful atmosphere a fun place to eat and very very good food. I highly recommend the boneto burrito it is stinking good!

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path because it is in a strip center at 77th & Quivira. You have to look for it and know where you are going, as you are not likely to stumble upon this great little gem of a restaurant. I consider myself a chip connoisseur. I love them thin, not thick! For... More
