For what it is it is one of the best in my opinion.
Ive come here maybe four or five times in the last year and always leave happy, full, and content with my experience. Some of the diners below might want this to be something it isn't which is a fine dining establishment. Sometimes a laid back vibe, cheese dip within arms reach, and a horribly cramped parking lot leading to a hole in the wall is all I want.
On a side note the food is actually quite different from the los bravos, monterreys, whatever other random tex-mex joints that seem to serve the same combination platters. Not different in a bad way but different in a very good way. I like this place because it's not the same as every other tex-mex joint for under ten dollars.
Good lord I have not had good Mexican in a long time this place raises the bar.
Best Mexican food in Cobb County! I love this place...great food, great service!
Chips and Salsa delivered quickly, yummy cheese dip, and strong margaritas...what else could you want?
I had the Border Nachos for my dinner and I've got to say: I was impressed with it! I had a mix of steak and chicken, and they took care to make sure each and every chip had a little of both on it. Both proteins were cooked perfectly: the chicken nice and juicy, and the steak was tender. Very happy with my meal!
Service was on-point as well. Our server checked on us regularly, kept our water glasses full, and was helpful in giving advice on what to order.
I don't normally go OTP, but when I do, I'll go to Border.
lunch specials are great, and the cheese dip
I went here for the first time the other day. I liked it. The food was authentic Mexican food. Really big menu and selection. Everyone was friendly. Much better then other Mexican places I have been too. They have a couple of TV's to watch games.
I'm not a huge fan of most Americanized mexican food because I feel chain eateries just dress up Taco Bell's "grade E" meat with some heavy sauces, and offer fancy margaritas to wash down the grease. Border completely eschews this plan in favor of great quality, low fat cuts of beef and chicken, hot corn chips, incredible salsa, and rice cooked to perfection.
I suggest dropping by during a casual lunch. Not a working lunch, mind you- a lunch where you can drink and beer and sit for a while. The lunch specials consist of a ton of food, and are usually under 5 dollars.
Overall: Awesome food, very low prices, non-chain restaurant. The waitstaff is often slightly surly and their English isn't great- but who cares? You're getting a great meal.
It's a bit of a hole in the wall, but it's quite good. The locals go here and I can understand why. Most combinations/specials are $5-$7, and the food is of excellent quality.
Service leaves a bit to be desired, spilling soda on the table, running around the restaurant, etc, but the food more than makes up for it.
This is your standard locally owned Mexican joint that has that little restaurant feel. It is right down the street from my place and I am absolutely i love with the salsa. It has a certain little fire to it and has a sort of smoky flavor. I think it is some of my favorite salsa anywhere. They also have fajita nachos and fajita quesadillas that you must try. I would recommend getting the cheese on the top of the quesadilla. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone that wanted to know about good Mexican food and I have to many of my coworkers.
