We go to the casino at Delaware Park just up the road a couple times a year, and we have always noted this restaurant with the giant EAT sign in front. I think the sign ion the roof must light up at night because we had no idea that this place was called the Border Cafe until we saw the receipt. For that matter, we had no idea it specialized in Tex-Mex cuisine until we parked and saw a sign on the side of the building. The building is built to resemble a ramshackle roadside Texas cantina, and the builders did a great job of capturing the perfect line between "quaint" and "kitschy" ( although I think the rooftop sign is backfiring for them.) Given their location near the casino, I was expecting much higher prices, but everything was very reasonable. I think the most expensive entree they have is around $17, and most items are $10 or below. My wife got the chicken enchiladas which were tender and tasty, but the freshly-made guacamole on the side was the real star. I had the blackened salmon which had a nice heat to the spice rub, and came with an excellent corn relish and an intensely flavorful house rice. We go to the casino whenever we feel like an occasional treat, and now that we know about the Border Cafe it always will be.
