My entree combined Mexican Gulf Coast seafood enchiladas with Cajun jambalaya, and my wife ordered the cheese enchiladas. Both were tasty, much better than most other Cajun and Mexican restaurants in the Delaware Valley. Prices were very reasonable, ingredients were fresh, and service was quick and efficient. It's a popular place, and it filled up quickly, but the noise level was a little uncomfortable.All in all, it's a great place to go for a delicious meal!

Overall Border Cafe does a nice job with their Louisianaand Mexican style offerings. Have had most things on the menu over the course of 7 years and have never had a bad meal. Good value.

The food is good- but it is loud if you are going for a quiet dinner you may wanna go elsewhere. They have a nice variety- Cajun food is good the catfish is the best. The fajitas are good also. Service was good.

Excellent tex-mex and cajun. Big servings for your money. Quick and excellent service. Seafood enchiladas are awesome!! My wife loves the catfish. Great salsa and pico. Always crowded but short waits due to quick service. Cool little bar. Lots to choose from on menu. Never had a bad meal. Near delaware park casino. You will not be disappointed....Really!!!!

We will be back time and time again. The Steak and Chicken Fahita was excellent and included the option of beans or gumbo...the gumbo was excellent. My wife had fish tacos which were excellent. We like spicy food and hit the spot as the food had perfect seasonings that lingered perfectly. We'll be back again this weekend.
