Larry Rainosek wanted to call their business the Burger Barn because of that yellow, barnlike roof, but his wife and others thought Frontier would be better, partly because New Mexico was a new frontier for the Texans.

Owner, Larry Rainosek, is a pioneer and hero in many ways.
Our first recognition award goes to Mr. Larry Rainosek, owner of Albuquerque's Frontier Restaurant.
When Rainosek decided to limit smoking in the restaurant a few years ago, it was not a popular decision. The owner made the policy decision to separate smokers from non-smokers due to concerns about the health of cashiers and cooks. Yet the initial experiment wasn't successful. Rainosek found that it is hard to contain the second-hand smoke.
The new America thanks you Larry!
NOTE: Larry Rainosek is a former smoker. He admits that the glamour and promise of looking cool seduced him as a teenager. He offers the following to teens: there is nothing in cigarettes that is cool, sexy or fun.
