The Great Frontera Tip Jar

UPDATE 3/28: Thank YOU for all of your contributions. We are going to wind this effort down on Monday, with the plan to distribute the proceeds to hourly workers later this week. Again, every penny we've raised here will be split equally among our hourly staff at Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, Xoco, Bar Sótano, Leña Brava and Cruz Blanca.

We are hopeful our anonymous donor will match the total, regardless of whether we met our $30,000 goal. We will keep you posted!


There’s no way to varnish it: our restaurants are in crisis. We are trying to hold our own with to-go business and gift card sales, but it’s clear our most vulnerable workers will need all the support we can give them.

As we work diligently to marshal all of our resources and help them navigate a perilous time, it occurred to us to appeal to you, our longtime regulars and supporters.  

Our team has banded together to create this special "tip jar” fund, which we will pool and distribute to our hourly workers.

These are the unsung heroes of our restaurant world, the prep cooks, dish washers, bar backs and tortilleras whose impact at our restaurants is incalculable. 

We ask you to join me in supporting them.

With hope, 
The Frontera Management Team
