Great service. Christina our waitress rocked. Chips were warm with both our order of guacamole and queso. Strawberry margaritas were good with real strawberries.

My daughter and I ate at the Border Cafe in Saugus and Sasha, our waitress, was friendly, professional, and helpful. She is a great asset to the restaurant. We also enjoyed our meal too.

Food is hit or miss. Same thing with service. They do have bomb chicken fajitas. Just ask for more wraps ahead of time because you will need them.
