The Border Cafe is a very popular restaurant in Harvard Square. It serves tex-mex food at reasonable prices, catering the students and locals alike. The free salsa and chips can't be missed!

If you're not planning on drinking alcoholic beverages, you can generally get seated faster during crunch times.

This remains by far my favorite restaurant in the greater Boston area.

Favorite Dish: It's not on the menu any more, but I have had them make it for me anyways....blackened chicken quesadilla. Blackened chicken, oodles of cheese...who could ask for more?
