You know how sometimes a local restaurant or watering hole will be popular but still not very good? Locals flock there because they always have, even when the food or drink doesn’t warrant the attention. I was curious whether this was true about Frontier Restaurant. It’s location across from UNM‘s main campus also gave me pause because, well, students will eat most anything if it’s reasonably priced and convenient.
But, no! The food is actually tasty! Check out what our late-night group feasted upon:
I’ve eaten at Church Street Cafe three times. Each time, I think somehow it will dazzle me but it never does. I do, however, believe it has one of the prettiest outdoor seating areas in ABQ. The fountain and overhanging grape leaves attract tiny curious birds and the setting is relaxed and comfortable.
I just can’t bring myself to try eating there again. I usually give a restaurant three tries before I give up. The gorgeous back patio isn’t enough to make me return.
