Frontera-on-the-Fly: A new lunch option at the bar

ONTHEfly_WEB_Slider-01

 

If you’ve been to lunch at Frontera lately you’ve probably seen a number of four- and six-tops, groups of people (probably co-workers) drinking margaritas like they’re going out of style (note: they’re not) and in general having a really, really good time—so good that you might wonder how productive they’ll be at work the rest of the day.

Lunches like that are awesome. But let’s be real—we can’t spend two hours drinking tequila and eating carne asada every day. That’s why today we’re launching a new, no-fuss lunch option at the Frontera bar. We’re calling it Frontera-on-the-Fly.

Frontera-on-the-Fly is the kind of lunch you can eat every day. It’s a smaller menu of some of our quicker items: guacamole, ceviche, tacos al carbón. You eat your salad, you eat your tostada, and before you know it you’re back at work.

See the new menu below. Or better yet—ask one of our bartenders.
