Walk-up ordering which on a busy night had us waiting maybe 2-3 minutes. Food was up in perhaps 5 minutes, friendly cashier, and tasty food. Cost for 2 meals was ~$16. What's not to like.

We usually eat here when we are headed to an event at UNM. The place is a mess, very busy, but the food is good and cheap. Breakfast is a must if your are in the area.

Right across the street from the University. Lots to choose from and reasonably priced. The food was good and plentiful. Old restaurant but very cool on Route 66.

We were just off the plane and hungry. This looked great and close and reviews drew us in. Once we found it it had nostalgic charm and the feel of an old diner. We got in the wie to order and the girl was helpful...More

The food is good, not the best, but the whole experience is pretty great and the value is terrific. The green chile cheeseburger is very good and what I would recommend.

Not that kind of eatery. Think "diner" not "dining", think "greasy spoon" not "silver spoon".

I don't think Frontier Restaurant has delivery service, but I'm not positive. Certainly have not seen any signs of delivery service any of the times I've been there.
