One of the best Mexican venues in this area. The entrees are large and can be shared in most cases. Good service.

We ate here on a Saturday night and it was very busy. We had margaritas, which were very good, a chicken frajita and a shrimp and cheese wrap. They gave us a basket of chips with salsa. The service was very good.

Mexican food is my favorite. Border Cantina is very fresh and I enjoy it as much as going to the Mexican restaurants in Detroit. Close to home, very bright and cheerful atmosphere.

Unlimited chips a salsa while you wait... but your food comes fast. Always consistently good quality and plentiful. Service can be hit or miss.

Another great meal at my favorite Tex Mex restaurant. We have been eating here for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Great fresh food, clean, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. No complaints!

I frequent this restaurant occasionally for the mushroom jack fajitas. The chips and salsa is average, but they are very affordable.

My family and I have been coming to Border Cantina for years. Now I can't say I have experience with Mexican food to know if it is "authentic" or not, but I do know the food here is consistent. At our most recent visit, I will say this place is in total need of a renovation. It is pretty dirty... More
