My wife and I went here for dinner the night we went to an Elton John concert! They were very friendly, the service was quick! The food was ver good! My wife and I shared a chicken quesadilla for starters! Then she had a chicken empanada which she loved! I had the beef tostada and it was just what I wanted! Great place to run to for a quick bit to eat, celebrations and just good food!

The servers tried hard but need some work. First margarita was good second came in a glass half the size. Said they ran out of margarita glasses. They should sell Margaritas by the pitcher. We ordered appetizers and 3 minutes later out came our entrees. Meat well done on the fajita's but over all not bad. Willing to give them another chance but they have some work to do.

Superb experience and superb service from top to the end. I celebrated my wedding 30th anniversary here last week. Today i realized that i have to go back to OpenTable to write review to show how appreciated everything i experienced in this tex-mex restaurant.

We had Fundido and Shrimp cocktail as appetizers, then i had steak fajitas and my wife had chicken carbon for entree. Everything was properly seasoned and the smell of steak fajitas was all over the place, taste so good. We tried 4 different margaritas, all of them are excellent, my favorite is the jalapeno infused margarita, it was served in paprika salt rimmed mason jar.
But the best part of our dinner was when our wait staff surprised us with dessert written on the plates happy anniversary. I mentioned to my reservation that we are celebrating our wedding anniversary , how great that they are really paying attention to details of reservation.
Then the general manager came to our table shake our hand and introduce his self name Richard, we had good conversation with him. he was very thankful that we choose Borders to celebrate our anniversary. After he left our table i notice that he is going to every guest to greet them, what a great man.

We are going back for my daughter birthday celebration in January, i wish all the best luck and i wish we always get the same experience every time.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and will certainly be my last. The margaritas takes and smell like sewerage. The waiting claimed they use House tequila (Jimador) but I’m guessing the lime juice was old and definitely didn’t taste like any margarita I have ever tasted in my life. I ordered chicken tacos and they were DRY DRY DRY. We also ordered crab cakes and they taste old and very dry. I dined at this location When it was Mr. Adams steakhouse which still has the very same layout. We waiting so long for our food and drinks not sure why when the place was EMPTY. They definitely need improvement but I don’t care to visit again. What a shame.

I love Tex-Mex food and when I heard they opened one around the corner from my office I got very excited!
Place is beautiful, colorful and fun. Very friendly staff, great margaritas and the food was delicious!
They also have a outside with water view but it was too cold to check it out.
My new happy hour spot for sure!
