  • Thorn reviewThe frontier or (front tire),as the regulars call it, has been in the same building for almost 30 years. It has the best cinnamon rolls in N.M. They also have the best breakfasts for the price. try the #2w/bacon, plus the people watching is great...

    55555 by Sarah McGarvey


  • Sarah SpagnoloThe taste du jour in Albuquerque, and many parts of the Southwest, is green chili sauce. At Frontier, the chili tops burgers and burritos. Video for more chili spots: http://wxch.nl/1JGRTS8
