Whenever I'm in Carrollton, the Border is always one of my lunch or dinner stops. Chips and salsa are always plentiful ~ the beer is cold ~ and their entrees are always good... especially their enchiladas for dinner.

My son and his new wife used The Border to cater their wedding reception. I will admit that I was a little skeptical, but The Border proved me wrong. All of the food was delicious. My favorites were the chicken, the guacamole, and the queso dip. Everyone I spoke with said how much they enjoyed everything. In addition, The Border... More

Service was slow, nothing special about the fish tacos, I have eaten better and I certainly have eaten worse. Again, nothing special!

This is one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in Carrollton. They serve classic Mexican food and their service is outstanding. Located near the State University of West Georgia. I highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for Mexican food. Authentic Mexican decor.

What are the best Mexican restaurant I've ever been in. The staff is excellent. They do everything they can to help you and make sure you got what you need. It's a very good atmosphere. Family friendly. Work friendly. We will definitely go back time and time again.

If there was an option to not give any stars, I would pick that option. I am a college student at the University of West Ga, and I went to this restaurant for the first time last night after an event with some friends.The waitress Alexandra T, as well as another waitress, had a misunderstanding between the orders at the...

We were in a big group, which may have affected the level of service or quality of food - but it took over an hour for our food to arrive, and the quality was pretty poor. Some of us ordered fajitas and the chicken was not up to the usual expectations of fajitas elsewhere, and there were practically no onions/peppers... More

The waiter made the meal. He was around without being in the way. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. The food was good and the portion were just right.

Parking on side and behind restaurant. Two floors. Food was good & reasonably priced. My seafood entree was $8. Free chips & salsa. Student discount & other specials.
