Brought my 11th grader for a Bonanza Burger meal. He gave a thumbs up for great food, fast service and a future college kid's price level! Excitement was seeing a city fire truck go by while waiting at the cross walk.

Low key restaurant, you’ll enter and walk right up to order your food and wait for your number to be called for your food pick up. Inexpensive and affordable. Directly across from the university which keeps them busy. The food is great!

This is a must eat at place. Great food and prices. Week ends are packed, so expect a wait but well worth it.

This place caters to a college crowd. The plates are basically no frills and a price to match. If you just want a quick bite for a very low cost ... this place will if the bill.

We visited the Frontier for the first time for a late lunch on a weekday. There are multiple parking lots behind the restaurant off Central, all posted with 45 minute time limits. We arrived after the noon rush and got a parking spot right behind...More

Not that kind of eatery. Think "diner" not "dining", think "greasy spoon" not "silver spoon".

I don't think Frontier Restaurant has delivery service, but I'm not positive. Certainly have not seen any signs of delivery service any of the times I've been there.
