My kids LOVE the Salvadoran pupusa! A handmade corn tortilla filled with meat and/or cheese.
I go here every Saturday night. It is amazing ! The people are super friendly and the place is very well secured . I love it . If you love live music please come and enjoy with us ! They make all types of events ( plus the food is GREAT ! ) . You will hear the local rock and roll bands play Wednesday nights and other local bands with a variety of genre of music Saturday nights . From rock and roll to bachata and all you can think of . It truly is a great place to listen to live music and dance the night away
La Frontera has Mexican and other Latin food. I'm not positive, but I think the emphasis is on Peruvian food. Either way, it's really good! They don't serve alcohol, so it's more of a place to go for a casual lunch/dinner.
Small family restaurant that delivers great quality and authentic Salvadorean food. The wait staff is very nice and helpful. I order take out all the time. My friends and I agree that they make the best pupusas in the area! Get the chicharron, yucca, and rice and beans, and horchata drink. Yum Yum!
my favorite spanish resturant in the area. i like there sopa de res, and the wings.. if you want authentic food this is a great place to go also has a nice bar
I love, love, love the pupusas at La Frontera. I had a training nearby and I had to run over there today to pick up two of the mixed pork and cheese pupusas. They are the ultimate comfort food, and the best to be had around Gaithersburg. What a deal: lunch for $4.15. You can't beat it!
Delicious food and pleasant service. We were the only non-spanish speaking customers but were made comfortable. One of the best restaurants we've been to in the area food-wise.
Ordered (delivery by UberEATS) a half a chicken with 2 sides, plantains and yuca aka cassava. Also ordered about 6 pupusas. Food was amazing! Let me tell you. The chicken was moist and full of flavor and the cassava was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Plantains, perfect and so were the pupusas. Taste like my son's abuelita made them and she's El Salvadoran sooo, nuff said! We will be back. :)
La Frontera is the only restaurant I found with great food in this area of Montgomery County.
Really delicious; plantains, pupusas, chicken...so good. This was my first introduction to the cuisine from El Salvador and I have loved El Salvador ever since. It's a little hole in the wall, btw. There's not a whole lot of English going on but we got our food. It's the one restaurant I would bother going back to...I was so disappointed with the food in general around here until I found La Frontera. I still think about it and it's been a while.
