I like Mexican cooking, and this is a nice place to have lunch. Relaxed and good selection of burritos, tacos and enchaladas (my personal favorite).

Front Street Cocina has gotten progressively worse over the years. In the past we had actually enjoyed dining here. Now the food does not seem fresh... dining room not very clean... service slow....

The menu reads like others ... BUT the recipes & flavors are over-the-top unique, delicious & satisfying! Appetizers large enough to feed 2 as a meal. They will customize your heat level if you ask. Friendly staff is knowledgeable & very attentive. The relaxed, cozy atmosphere invites you to linger longer. Outside seating in warm weather is a treat. Extensive menu will take a while to read and a while to decide ... it's incredibly delicouis. They really love what they do, and it shows. Family friendly! A "must try" if you like the mexican flavors! Lunch or dinner or anytime in between!

Dan and Gary,

We wanted to share with you an unpleasant dining experience last night on Tuesday, Jan 4, 2011 at your Wheaton location at approximately 7PM. The dinner traffic was light in your restaurant. Even though our female server advised the manager at your Wheaton location of our disatisfaction with the poor quality of our meals, the manager never came over to discuss our negative response to our server's query on how were our meals! I spent a total of $34.25 plus a $5.00 tip for a: Chile Rellano that had didn't have a battered fried coating on the poblano pepper, but had a vinegar taste to it; and my wife had the steak fratitas where the meat was tough and the server brought over a steak knife for her to cut it in the soft taco wrapping. We boxed up the steak to give to our dog!

We haven't eaten at your Wheaton location since last summer, but I have ordered this dinner in the past without a food quality problem. We came to your restaurant for a fast meal after attending a wake in downtown Wheaton, but passed up a pizza dinner nearby due to the lateness of the hour. Even though it was nice to see your operation has expanded to several locations thru the years, we have never had an unpleasant experience and won't be visiting your restaurant in the future.

I am not a food critic, but your management staff's lack of concern and their unwillingness to investigate poor cooking will jeopardize your future restaurant operations success.

Regards,

Ed Zalewski
