"Past by this place many times didn't even see it till recently. Friendly staff, nice and colorful menu, food is food and I'm in love with their giant margaritas."

"Chicopee's getting a lot of great food spots over the last few years and Frontera is the one that get's the most attention. Rightfully so, as they've done an excellent job at creating a very fun atmosphere that won't break your bank.
The parking situation at Frontera is pretty good, but on very busy nights you may have to park on one of the tiny side streets a few feet from the main parking area. The waits are normally very short but unfortunately there is not a lot of waiting room on those busy nights and often you will be outside or huddled together on the small entrance. There's a small bar area for quick seating and then a main room with large tables, surrounded by large open windows and plenty of booths.
The food selection is awesome, there is a large menu that should suit just about everyone going out to eat. The table side guacamole is always worth the extra few bucks, as the generic guac from the kitchen is VERY generic. I've gone through just about everything on the taco's menu (barring the fried fish) and I'd suggest either the Street Taco's or the World's Best taco's. Unlike most restaurants in the area that use very generic recipes, these are made with a bit of flare and some pretty unique ingredients.
I've skipped the appetizers, as they don't stand out TOO much. This doesn't mean that they are bad, in fact the wings they have are VERY sweet and worth it, however the rest of them are very generic and nothing to write home about. I would suggest the chicken tortilla soup to anyone wanting to warm up, and it's often something that once one person orders the rest of the table ends up with as well.
Drinks are pretty good here, a large variety of margaritas both with ice and frozen. A smallish selection of generic "mexican" beers and a few tequila selections. The margarita quality varies depending on who is working but range from salty-but-okay to almost-perfect.
If you're in the western mass area, I think Frontera is easily one of the best and most approachable Mexican style restaurants in the area."
