The wife and I went to Border Cafe today for lunch and it was less than stellar. Our appetizer was good, but the plates they brought out for the appetizers were dirty and we had to send back. That set the stage for our meal...More

The food was very good. The wait staff was very pleasant. We did have over an hour wait for a table for 5. We went on a Monday, for dinner. Go early or late for a shorter wait.

Always like going to borders Cafe. The food is very good and you get a lot of it. The only drawback with so many people in there talking, it's hard to talk to people on your table. Very good atmosphere very good waitresses

They don't do reservations. This place is too busy all the time. Unless you talk to a manager and go before or after a select time.

The kids menu is great and they are good variety. All the kids meals come with a candy dessert and I don't think any are more than $5. Most times my boys have left overs for next day lunch.
