This weekend we went to a comedy show at The Comedy Studio (which we would highly recommend! It was hilarious) with a co-worker and some of his friends in Harvard Square. Naturally, we had to dine at Border Cafe. This place boasts authentic Tex-Mex and Cajun cooking and is some of the best Tex-Mex I’ve had up north. Nothing actually beats real Tex-Mex back at home but they put in a good effort (silly northerners).
Please excuse all the poorly lit pictures. I didn’t want to disturb the other guests with my obnoxious flash.
To start, I got a Lone Star to represent my people…
And Selma got their Grande Margarita. They were both delicious.
This place is decked out with Texas artwork and signs paying tribute to the greatest state in existence. Who couldn’t love this place?
Onto the food…
One of the best parts about Border Cafe is that the food is simple and cheap. Really cheap. Plus, they always start you off with some free warm chips and dip. I always over-load on them.
I ended up getting the Pulled Beef Enchiladas with jambalaya, sour cream and guac.
And Selma ordered the Chicken Enchiladas with rice and beans. Each plate was less than $7! Guac and sour cream were extra but we splurged a little and added them on anyways because we’re worth it.
Overall the food is straight forward and very flavorful. The enchiladas were cheesy and the meat inside was moist and not over-done. The service is also really efficient considering how busy this place is all the time. If you are ever in the area and craving some good authentic Tex-Mex, this is the place for you!
