“A family favorite!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

We love Border Cafe!! The food is always great--fresh and hot, the service is always prompt and attentive, and the atmosphere is awesome. It's always hopping in there! The chips and salsa are SO amazing... something so simple as that and the pina coladas would have me going back every time. My kids love the kids menu--especially since you get a choice of candy after dinner! Parking is always adequate--never had to park in the overflow parking area behind the restaurant. Never waited too long to be seated either. The bathrooms are clean. Love this place!

“Obsessed.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

This place is in my top 3 resturants of all time, love everything about it. Blackened salmon perfection, delicious guac and strong margs. Will go every time I'm in the area.

“Always a good decision”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

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