“Fresh and fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

Front Street Cocina is a great little restaurant in downtown Wheaton. Various flavors of margaritas are refreshing and yummy. Chips and salsa brought to the tables are always great. Vast array of options on the menu and something for every picky kid. In the warm weather months you can sit at a table outside. I've never had bad service here. They do take-out too!

“Great tasting food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

Very, very good. Authentic? close. Great taste? Definitely. Been there twice with family when passing through this area. Would go out of our way to eat here again. The black beans are the best tasting ever. Recommend to anybody.

“Good mexican, better margaritas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Nice upscale casual place, solid food, but not really memorable. Certainly a place I would frequent periodically. Very good chips and salsa. Definitely above average for your typical amerimexican joint.

“Mexican Style in downtown Wheaton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

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).

“Not so good anymore”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

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....
