Border Cafe Burlington

If you are looking for a quiet lunch place Border Cafe in Burlington is not for you. It get really really loud at lunchtime and it also gets incredible busy. They advertise as Creole and Tex Mex food and they are not doing a bad job of it. This is not fine dining but really decent food for reasonable prices. They don't have a lunch menu so some dishes are really out of my lunch price range but it's OK to splurge a bit sometimes and they are not really pricey. My catfish at $11.88 is among the more expensive items. I have no idea where they got the .88 from.

Chips and Salsa gets on the table quickly. Salsa is good with a nice flavor, not to spicy. The corn chips are fresh, mine was still to hot to touch when they got to the table.

Catfish New Orleans is a big hunk of deep fried catfish with a basil shrimp cream sauce served with rice and beans. Perfectly cooked fish, nice rice and excellent beans! If you don't want to spend the big bucks they have a Shrimp and Crawfish Ceasar Salad for $7.85 that is also very good.

More tables to the right and to the left. This is a big and loud place!

They do have outdoor seating but on a 90+ day like today, the AC rules. The staff is very efficient and your chips and salsa is refilled without prompting. They also seem to enjoy working there.
