Border Cantina was a family favorite while growing up. We recently moved back to the area and have given Border Cantina a try, twice. Both times have been gross. The restaurant has become run down and is in desperate need of updating. The employees are out back smoking- both times we have parked. The chips and salsa were good, but my meal recently was unappetizing. The food came out almost immediately and I think my enchiladas had been sitting out and just been warmed up. the cheese was hard and only warm in some spots. Not good. Won't be going back. Don't recommend.

Our family has chosen Border Cantina for Mexican food for the past several years. The food is always good, always consistant, and the wait staff is very attentive. This is a great alternative to the chain Mexican restaurant. It does get extremely busy for dinner on Friday and Saturday - don't know about the other days. Portions are generous.
