The menu blossoms with appealing and diverse possibilities that change monthly. Flavorful starters include a crunchy jicama salad (with oranges, grapefruit and pineapple, tossed with orange-lime vinaigrette), made-to-order tortilla chips with two sal ... more

Mixed results. The appetizers (lamb chops in particular) and baked potato were fantastic. Sadly - my steak was so/so. Cooked just right, but with little flavor. I knew I wasn't alone when the other folks at the table started reaching for the seas ... more

Can't believe you people. Being from Texas, I'm used to incredible Mexican food. Realizing that the 'Mexican' food up here is quite different from the Tex-Mex I'm used to, as well, it's more Mexican-styled cuisine rather th ... more

The lively Mexican music. The whimsical Mexican artifacts. The smells of spicy Latin cuisine. Frontera Grill, the colorful creation of Rick Bayless, puts Mexican food on the fast track. The menu blossoms with appealing and diverse possibilities t ... more

Two restaurants. Topolobambo is the nice restaurant, Frontera Grill is the casual cafe. Both are very good, though the menu doesn't appear to change too often. This is real Mexican food, not the tex-mex most are familiar with. It's definit ... more

Rick Bayless is a master of Mexican cuisine. This is by no means your typical burrito or taco stand (which I love by the way). The food here is fine Mexican dining. Very creative. A wide variety of new taste experiences. Very, very good food.

Frontera's is a great place, fun atmosphere, great food and a excellent bar. I went with a few friends and had an excellent time. It will be a must stop when in Chicago from now on.

Topolobampo just plain rocks. Food is good (love the ceviche) and the margaritas are really tasty. Lots of beers. Fun atmosphere, usually loud, and always packed. Didn't much care for the sangria, but oh, well. Can't have everything. ... more

Two connected restaurants, Topolobampo and Frontera Grill, offer mid- and up-scale Mexican to windy city's citizens. Rick Bayless's menus, however, are better than the food, often. I wish he could deliver a little better on the promise o ... more

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. No exageration. I look for excuses to go to Chicago so I can eat here. The food is delicious, the sauces make you want to lick your plate, and they don't stint on tequila in the margaritas.
