Very nice relaxed atmosphere. Fun, noisy, busy most of the time so you may have to wait and they don't take reservations. Great for kids. Food is of large amount and good. Reasonably priced. I would go back often but it is so busy you really have to be ready to just sit and chill out there. If you have the time it is noisy, fun and relaxing.

We go to Border Cafe frequently because the food is always good and the price is right. You can't beat this popular spot for Mexcian, Cajun, Tex-Mex food at reasonable prices. If there is a wait for a table, try to find a spot at the bar. The bartenders are friendly and provide great service.

Every meal I've eaten here is really good. The mix of Cajun and Mexican and seafood is delicious. Service can be iffy depending on who you get, but not bad enough to stop me from going!

Never had a bad meal here- consistently awesome! Chicken ceasar salad is my favorite dish but fajitas and blackened chicken entrée also outstanding.. Do an early dinner to avoid the crowds.
