I have been going to the Border Cafe my entire life. There is no better place for Cajun/TexMex cousine and a constantly fun atmosphere. The price is right and in the heart of Harvard square, there's plenty to do while waiting for your table. The only caution I can offer is don't wear nice clothes because you will smell like the restaurant until you shower and wash your clothes. But it's worth it!

I ate the most delicious meal of my life in this restaurant and the atmosphere is very friendly. I will never forget this restaurant !

I'm a local, and I've been going to the Border for ages. It's prolly my favorite restaurant in Harvard Square. Love the atmosphere, the food is excellent, (and interesting). Outstanding margaritas. Best bet: Don't go when there are a lot of tourists in the Square. Go for lunch on a weekday when it's a lot less crazy. On a Sunday afternoon during tourist season it gets crazy. Ditto a Saturday night when the college kids are in town.

I just returned from the Border Cafe in Harvard Square and will never go back. The service was awful- our waitress was apparently angry that we had gotten drinks from the bar and made a snide remark (there was a wait so we had a drink while we waited for our table.) She took our order and never came back. Someone else brought our food, no one asked if we needed anything, and we sat there while she walked by a number of times but completely ignored us. I ordered an appetizer to start, but she never came back so I could order my meal. This waitress ruined our night.

You will never have a better dish in your life than the Crawfish Etouffe. Margaritas and super and the classic Country Music and Zydeco in the background make for a great aymosphere.
