We always have a good meal at Border Cafe. Reasonably priced and very tasty. Try a Jumbo Margaharita but make sure you are not driving !! Downside : NO Mexican DESSERT !!

Blackened Catfish was ordered for dinner. The entree was somewhat spartan: a single piece of fish and a small portion of rice. The fish was somewhat "rubbery" ((not the best catfish I have ever had). This establishment was well-patronized, however, so perhaps the other offerings are better.

My family has been enjoying this restaurant for probably 5 years and keep going back. Food is excellent and portion size is rather large. We usually eat half the meal and bring what is left home for lunch the next day. Prices are VERY REASONABLE. My only complaint, which is minor in my opinion, is that they do not have draft beer (bottles only) and they do not take reservations. Wait times for a table can be very lengthy on Friday and Saturday nights.

Large groups (5 or more) should avoid at rush times - very limited seating for groups, and will not accommodate by putting tables together. Food is good and reasonably priced.
