Good food with good friends

They have a full menu of southwestern goodies, good atmosphere, prices are reasonable. Our waiter made sure we were taken care of, I had the sampler and it was like a full meal. Very good and everything was delicious.

This location is great- I have been here many times and always have a great time. The wait staff moves fast- so even during "busy times" the wait time is low and youl be seated quickly. Never had any bad waitors here- they are always friendly and willing to adjust my orders because of food allergies.

Quick lunch. Had fried jalapeños and the sampler platter. The quesadilla was good the rest just ok. Waitress annoyed me. I asked for water with lemon and she didn't bring lemon and she only talked/looked at my boyfriend when she asked if we needed anything or how was food.

I like this resturant but it is over an hour away from me. I like the chips and salsa although the salsa is a little more spicy than the salsa in other mexican resturants. I purchased the queso but that was a little bland. I also got the combination plate with empanadas and flautas - they were very good. the... More

Nicki makes the best margarita's. The servers Nick and Meghan are our favorite. The meals are reasonably priced. Tony, the manager, always stops by everyones table. If you're in the area, you can't go wrong!

But VERY loud! Not trying to be a stick in the mud as this is a very upbeat tex mex spot with great tacos and drinks but the music is so loud the waiter couldn't even hear us! If they could turn the music down just a notch I may have stayed for another drink...

I can always depend on The Border for good mexican food on the road. This place did not disappoint. So there I was in Philly, on business, Monday night, and the Eagles are on National TV. The place was rocking, but a tasteful crowd. I ate in the bar so I could watch the game. All in all, a great... More
