“Who honestly thinks this is 5 stars?”
“Save your money "
“Service was extemely poor and so was the food.”
“Love the Hot Sauce!”
Tips: Frontera Grill takes advance reservations for all lunch parties and for groups of five to 10 at dinner; groups smaller than five should call early on the same day. Topolobampo takes lunch and dinner reservations for up to eight people; it’s a good idea to call several weeks in advance for weekend seatings.

“Go for drinks and chips/guac, NOT for the food…”
“good mexican food”
“mediocre tacos at incredibly high prices (and poor service)”
Tips: The beverage list includes 25 tequilas, a small wine selection, and a handful of Mexican beers—but the specialty fruit and herb drinks, like the pineapple margarita and the banana-dill daiquiri, are too tempting to resist.
