Customer testimonials

Ate here on my wdw vacation. It was so delicious. I highly recommend the pineapple guacamole and chicken mole. The drinks were fantastic as well.

Frontera Cocina is definitely not your average Mexican restaurant! Although I can't make any claims on authenticity, the food was perfect! Service: We were served by Uriel who was absolutely fantastic! He memorized our orders, came back to double check on us, and when our soup wasn't hot, he replaced it with no questions asked! Food: I got the chipotle chicken flautas and they were fantastic. The tortilla was crispy and the inside was filled with beans and chicken that made for a smooth filling. The salsa verde was slightly spicy but the perfect freshness needed for the flautas. The Oxaxcan Mole Chicken is actually made with no chocolate here, but had over 30 other ingredients and takes over 24 hours to make. The chicken was juicy, the sauce was sweet (thanks to the raisins), and the rice was perfectly cooked!

Outstanding! Absolutely fresh and authentic food! The service was exceptional. The carne asada tacos were perfect: tender, well-seasoned, delicious! My wife's chicken with a red mole sauce was excellent as well; juicy, flavorful, and perfectly prepared. Great drink menu and beer selection. We will definitely back and highly recommend dining here. My only regret is that it took so long to finally do so!
