Frontera Grill and Topolobampo: "Gourmet Mexican" Frontera Grill Topolobambo Tip by Etoile2B

Frontera Grill Topolobambo, Chicago: 13 reviews and 9 photos

Fantastic Mexican food in the Magnificent Mile area. You need reservations for Topolobampo (which is known for unique, upscale Mexican). Frontera is their less expensive "Cantina" and they don't take reservations so plan to wait. Owner, Rick Bayless, takes the staff of Topolobampo to Mexico every Summer to learn more about the cuisine and work on his new menus, which are constantly changing. The staff is well versed in the culture and menu and happy to help if you can't make up your mind!

Favorite Dish: The menu changes occasionally so you can always try something new. They also feature an extensive tequila menu, so go ahead and order that second margarita!
