I Love New Mexico

About all things New Mexican

One of my first blog posts was about the Frontier Restaurant in Albuquerque (http://bit.ly/ef5S3P) because it is, bar none, one of my favorite places to eat in New Mexico.  Consistently good food, kitschy atmosphere, and the best conversations of my life. 

Yesterday a Quay County friend of mine said they’d been to the Frontier for the first time and loved it, but had no idea what to order – the menu is chock full of choices, and just how (other than the mandatory cinnamon roll) do you choose?

So as a public service to all you Frontier newbies out there, here’s my standard order (unless, of course, I choose the huevos rancheros, or the carne adovada burrito, or the burger. . .):  medium green chile stew, western style hash browns (they come covered in melted cheese and green chile) and extra tortillas. 

My favorite Frontier meal (plus tortillas)

If you order this combination, you’re going to be happy and very, very full every time.

Find the Frontier at 2400 Central SE in Albuquerque and at www.frontierrestaurant.com.  Right now I’d give my left arm for a bowl of that chile. . .

    Love the Frontier! Mr. Franklin used to take us there and the rule was you had to order orange juice. No matter what you ordered…..think green chile enchilladas…you had to get orange juice for the vitamin c factor!

    I remember many years ago when you took us there for the first time–I thought we had gone to a foreign country.Lots of different folks. We agree with you–we love it!
