Staff was really hurry all the time on Saturday evening and service wasn't good. We must wait long time to get an order and it's takes longer to get a food. I maybe praise the food if I say that it was ok. I didn't like this Mexican restaurant.

We were there for a group meeting. There were 35 of us - we were told that 20 had been expected. Our first problem: one waitress for all 35 of us [one waitress would not have been enough if there had been just twenty]. It took forever to get drinks, chips, etc., and our food orders taken. When the food... More

Stopped here for a late lunch. Service was good. Food was very good. Authentically decorated, took me right back to Mexico. I think the name changed, though!

Love the salsa and chips as we sat down since we had just been at the movies and we were starving. Drink were great too. Our waiter was fast taking our order and bringing the food. My hubby order the fajitas and it only had about 4 pieces of steak. Not the best but not the worst

Enjoyed brisket tacos! My husband had a combo platter. Cheese dip tastes like it is made with Velveeta. Service was a little slow but would definitely go back!

Four of us came here for lunch on Saturday. There were drink specials that we decided to take advantage of however my friend's Pina Colada was awful, thin, watery and runny so she sent it back for a strawberry daquiri instead which was much better. The $2.00 Mimosas for lunch were a great bargain! Our server seemed to be rushed... More

On the Boarder was never the polestar for great Mexican food, but at least you could rely on hearty portions of pretty good Mexican fare. Perhaps it's the management or just a bad night, but on every level, this place seems to have gone down hill. The food was not good -- the chips were soggy; the steak was fatty;... More

We didn't realise there was one in the Miami area and were out this way playing mini golf. We love this chain and were not disappointed. It was late when we arrived, but we were not the last to dine. We were seated immediately and served drinks plus chips and salsa. The chips were really nice and thin and served... More
