Delicious, fresh Southwestern food with something for everyone. Generous serving sizes and friendly service. Sometimes a bit of a wait but never unbearable.

This is a great family restaurant, as the food is good, portions are hearty, and the prices are unbelievably low. At our last visit, I had a spicy chicken salad (Route 66 Cobb) for $8, and after eating a ton of free nachos and salsa, it was more than I could eat in one sitting. The seafood enchiladas and blackened catfish were also tasty. Kids eat for $3.90, which includes full-size packs of candy for dessert. Every time we've been, the staff has been very attentive - drink refills appear before you need them! The noise level is a bit high, but bearable.

Can't complain about any of the food I have had at Borders. Always good and hot with quick service. Very inexpensive. I think the costliest entree is $15. Most are under 10.
Very Noisy atmosphere so great if your having a happy hour...don't have to worry about making noise - no one will hear you.

Only complaints - no domestic beers, Few drink specials. Not a quite place for a romatic date/meal or if you are having a business meeting.

We visit at least once a month for our 'naughty but nice' carb/calorie excess when we allow ourselves to order fries. I check out the menu but always end up getting the same thing because it's just so darn good - the Jim Bowie steak!
