    Frontera Grill basically is named for the Spanish meaning of the word Frontera--border.

    Topolobampo is named after a small fishing village in Mexico and we thought it would be fun to say...

    My wifes family is colombian, my brother in law is a chef in Minneapolis, he jokes about opening a restaurant called Facatativa (a city in Colombia) for the same reason.
