Fantastic Tex-Mex in Harvard Square Jul 06, 2012
Border Café has to be one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the Boston area. Delicious food at very reasonable prices, especially given the generous portions, and a great drink menu…who could ask for anything more? (And after almost a decade in Texas, I’ve indulged in my fair share of Tex-Mex!) So far I’ve tried the burro, fajitas, and quesadillas without a single disappointment. While chips & salsa come free, treat yourself and order some queso.

The menu is extensive and includes all the expected Tex-Mex fare – fajitas, quesadillas, tacos, etc. – as well as a few Cajun dishes to keep things interesting. They also have a Kids menu and vegetarian options beyond salads. Drinks on the menu include a variety of margaritas, sangria, beer and wine with other options at the bar. Non-alcoholic beverages like lemonade and soft drinks are also available.

The restaurant itself includes a small patio and bar area. With ample seating, I’ve been fortunate enough that I’ve never had to wait very long.

Border Café is easily accessible on the T (Red Line to Harvard Sq, exit to Church Street) and there is a public parking lot across the street. So come on out, enjoy a great meal, and explore Harvard Square!

7/5/2012 Online Menu: $11-$12 for beef, chicken or catfish fajitas; $7-$8 for beef, chicken or veggie quesadillas; $6-$8 for a margarita.

The Border Cafein Harvard Sq. is the best Tex/Mex in Boston. Friday and Saturday nights getting a table means having to wait usually over an hour. But the food is excellent as are the portions. My friend who often goes weekly, swears by the fajitas, though I like to try different things each time I go. The chips are made fresh in the restaurant and are often still drying when the arrive at the table. All in all, Tex/Mex in Boston doesn't come any better.
