Since 1985, chef and owner Mary Martinez has adorned tables at La Frontera with authentic Mexican platters, including combination dinners and breakfast and weekend specials. Guests can avoid distracting nearby beat-box troupes by silently biting into soft nachos, two fresh flour tortillas layered with refried beans, ground beef, colby cheese, and an optional freckling of jalapeños ($7.05–$8.05). After beef morsels steep in their own flavorful juices, the carne guisada dinner greets tongues with a regular or hot handshake, and supplements its meaty center with rice, refried beans, salad, and tortillas ($7.80). One ($7.15) or three ($8.15) tacos laden with seasoned ground beef nest on the taco dinner's plate, and patrons that nosh on Saturday, Sunday, or before 11:30 a.m. during the week can slip huevos rancheros betwixt yawning jaws ($6.25). Buñuelos—fried flour tortillas dappled with cinnamon and sugar—conclude suppers on a sweet note, serenading diners with crispy shells daubed in butter, honey, and crooning saxophones ($1.25).

La Frontera

La Frontera has filled its menu with classic Mexican dishes, such as a family recipe for beef picadillo, since its founding in 1985. Huevos rancheros and chorizo burritos grace the breakfast menu, and flautas join traditional and soft nachos at lunchtime. Carne guisada, tostadas, and tacos crown dinner plates alongside rice, beans, and salad, and paletas (Mexican popsicles) in flavors such as watermelon and coconut join buñuelos for dessert. La Frontera also serves American dishes, such as cheeseburgers and cheese fries, amid the dining room's inlaid ceramic tile and Coca-Cola ephemera, such as vintage bottles, cans, tins, and free-floating carbonation bubbles.
