We truly enjoyed our evening at Border Cafe. I would like to thank the staff for helping us with seating since there were 12 of us and they were very busy. Good Job!!!!

I go here a lot. Food is always good, not to mention relatively cheap. It is seemingly always crowded, but I've never had an issue with service here. Only thing I don't like is that they do not accept reservations.

Don't let the "EAT" roadside sign fool you. This place is great. Food is fabulous and priced almost too low but who's complaining. Service is always great and free wifi too. Love the chips & salsa w sea salt. To DIE for!!!

Choose wisely Grasshopper! Many different margaritas and all at reasonable prices. May as well go for the Commemerativo and make it "On the Rocks". All cajan food great. Crawfish Étouffée especially good. Must like garlic and spices to dine here

Had dinner there my husband- food was good/hot and tasty. Restaurant itself was loud and hard to have a conversation. Family friendly.
