Place was mostly empty, waiter not seen often and no drink refill ever came. lots of choices on the menu. Food was "eh" nothing to brag about. Cheap mexican food, much better places around. Place was a bit dilapidated looking.

Nothing is even remotely authentic about this place! Loooooong wait for food, terrible wait staff & unclean environment. Seriously, the worst food I've ever had!!

I use to love coming here when I was a kid and I was excited to bring my wife here for the first time when we vacationed back in Salt Lake from Europe. The food was microwaved and you could easily see this fact. I ate my food because well I am use to this, but my wife from a... More

We really enjoy this location of La Frontera. Within walking distance to the hotel we stayed at. Good food and friendly service. Will return again on our next visit to the area.

La Frontera is over priced and charges double what La Fountain and La Puente do for the same items. I wont be going back again!

Best Verde in all the states I have tried Verde in. By far our favorite mexican restaurant. We often just order the chips and salsa for take out. Always fast, consistent and great service!

My dinner was so late that the othe three had finished their's before I even started mine. The food most have all come from a can or a frozen box. We've... More

My wife, step-daughter, and I went to La Frontera in Sandy, near the South Towne Mall, on Saturday afternoon, November 7, 2015, for my step-daughter’s birthday dinner. It’s her favorite restaurant for Mexican food. We all chose the large combination plate with the smothered burrito, including cheese and onions, which is the bottom choice under Large Combination on their menu.... More

We used to eat here once a month or more. Loved the chicken burrito -- smothered. There is lots of meat and the smothering cheese is so good. I think the price DOUBLED the last time we were there. Which is why it is the last time we went :(
