      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Excellent food; knowledgeable waitstaff
      Cons: Noisy

       
      I had heard that some people were disappointed in this restaurant, but decided to try it because I like Mexican food. Once my food came I understood why people were disappointed. If you go expecting anything like Taco Bell, Chi-Chi's or maybe your local "Azteca" restaurant, that's not what you get. What you do get are delicious, interesting, tasty dishes with an authentic Mexican flavor. I ordered the Shrimp Mojo de Ajo and it was wonderful. The rice with plantains and tiny bits of grilled zuchinni (calabasitas on the menu) was the perfect compliment to the perfectly cooked shrimp. The dish came with warm corn tortillas, but I didn't need those because I ate every grain of that wonderful rice.


      My husband had the Carnitas and, again, the pork was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and very tender. The salsa verde (served on the side) was the only item with any "heat" and it wasn't overpowering, just enough to be very tasty. The guacamole, queso fresco, and pickled onions were perfect with the pork on the warm tortillas.


      If you want something like Taco Bell, don't go to Frontera Cocina, but if you want a really tasty, authentic Mexican dish, this is definitely a great place to visit. Since we were there for lunch, we did not order any alcohol, but their beverage menu looks very interesting. I want to go back soon and try more of their food items and maybe a specialty drink.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Beautiful restaurant, $5 margaritas on Mondays!
      Cons: Spicy but good food

       
      My sister raved about this restaurant after her last WDW visit so I asked if we could eat here during my birthday celebration weekend. So on August 15
      we had dinner here. The restaurant was beautiful-the mural and glass objects are so colorful. We started with $5 margaritas and they were scrumptious! We had chips with guacamole and two other salsas. The chips were delicious-I ate them plain after trying the sauces. My chicken enchiladas were good but a little to "hot" for me.
      My sister and niece opted for chicken flauntas and
      really enjoyed them. I will dine here again but
      I'll choose a different entree. But it will be a Monday for those $5 margaritas!

      Just a warning to anyone who has been to Bayless' Frontera Grill or Topolabampo in Chicago that this restaurant is not much like either of those. The menu did not have as many entree choices as we expected and the ambiance was ultra-modern rather than Mexican. The Coctel Verde appetizer was our favorite item.
