Me and my wife ate here one night for dinner. The gentleman with long black hair that seated us to our table was coughing and sneezing as he seated us. The service at this location is usually not very good and this time with no...More

Dinner here recently. Needed to eat and it was past 9pm. They were open until 11, so seemed like a good option. Free parking lot, though the nearby construction made it hard to reach. Seated right away. Margaritas were cold and good. Had a few....More

Our favorite is the Enchiladas Suizas. Also we enjoy the variety of beans - we like to switch between charro, black and refried.

Brad was the friendliest waiter and made our whole experience get an extra star. On the Border food is always good and this location did not disappoint.

Ate during off hours (4:00 PM). Small staff but they tried to make up for it. Still service was a little on the slow side. Food was what you expect at Mex-Tex restaurants. Food was good at a reasonable price. One if going, road construction...More

This Tex-Mex restaurant has a lot of great gluten free options. I ordered the steak street tacos. I really like the Mexican rice and the black beans. The service is always so good. Although I can't eat them, I enjoy watching them make the flour...More

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
