We have returned to the Border Cafe three times when visiting our daughter at college in Boston. It's a short hop across the river to this loud and lively spot, which has great mexican and pretty good cajun food, delicious margaritas and terrific service...all at a price that makes it a favourite with college students and families alike. Plan on a short wait, but the staff is great about managing your expectations on how long it will take to get a table. On this visit there was a hiccup when our pager wasn't working and they did skip us on the list...but once they realized it the manager was very apologetic and gave us a couple of free appetizers which more than made up for the mistake. Our server was attentive, especially considering how busy the night was and unfailingly cheerful. The food, as always was excellent - from the more standard cheese enchiladas our daughter had to the fresh and light Swordfish tacos Vera Cruz with a great mango salsa and grilled avocado half that was fantastic. The list of margaritas is long and both their house margarita and the texas margarita are terrific. A great place to try if you are in Boston of Cambridge!
