Tortas Frontera

About Tortas Frontera

HMSHost has partnered with award-winning chef-restaurateur Rick Bayless to bring authentic Mexican cuisine to Chicago O’Hare International Airport with the same flair that made his Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, and XOCO restaurants legends in Chicago. Chef Rick designed the high-quality “farm-to-terminal” menu to offer O’Hare travelers a choice of delicious tortas — Mexican griddle-baked sandwiches, and mollettes – warm open-face sandwiches.
