Frontier Restaurant in Albuquerque

I wish this place were attached to a living history museum, something commemorating pioneers with a collection of dusty covered wagons while men in suspenders bale hay and sun-bonneted docents show you around.

Instead, this whole gigantic building is kind of a fast food restaurant.

The “kind of” part being the crowds, booths and ordering procedure

And the relative speed of service. However, the food is surprisingly good for a restaurant with foam cups. I got the breakfast burrito, which was full of green chilies and hashbrowns

This cinnamon roll might be the most decadent thing I’ve laid eyes on in weeks.

Yeah, that’s melted butter…

University of New Mexico students have been patronizing Frontier Restaurant for decades because it’s right on Central Avenue and it’s open until 1am. However, the Travel Channel has recently taken notice and guess who came to visit?

Tune in next week to see if Adam Richman agrees that Frontier Restaurant serves the best green chili cheeseburger in town.

It’s hard to believe that Frontier Restaurant could get busier, but TV exposure tends to do that; so, if you actually want to taste that cheeseburger, you should go this week. Barring the cheeseburger, try the cinnamon roll. It’s de-li-cious.
