In 1987, the husband-and-wife team of Rick Deann Bayless wanted to re-create the flavors of Mexico in their own restaurant after travelling through the country. They opened their first Frontera Grill restaurant in Chicago’s River North neighborhood in January and has not looked back since then. The duo wanted their first restaurant to evoke the colorful, vibrant and dynamic kitchens of Mexico, thus, they festooned it with colorful Mexican folk art, played Mariachi music, and filled the menu with rich black beans, tangy tomatillos, and spicy chiles. Today, the restaurant chain continues to add authentic Mexican flavors and develop strong relationships with its customers through its delicious food and drinks.
