You may recognize the name Rick Bayless from his long-running PBS show “Mexico-One Plate at a Time.” He has won countless awards over the years and owns a number of other Mexican-themed restaurants across the country.

In addition to sit-down dining, Frontera Cocina also features a walk up window where shoppers can snack on Guacamole and Chips, Tacos or sip on a signature margarita. Frontera Cocina has outdoor seating, so diners can enjoy the wonderful Disney Springs atmosphere while eating.

Here is a little more of a description of Frontera Cocina from the Disney Parks Blog:

Chef Bayless offers his award-winning taste of dishes such as Oaxacan Red Chile Chicken, Salsa Verde Shrimp Enchiladas Suizas and freshly made salsas and guacamole. There’s also a quick-service taco counter.

The lively new dining spot features warm colors and an open kitchen where Executive Chef Stephen Hicks leads the culinary team.
