The Border

Cedartown’s The Border is located at 718 N Main St. 

Cedartown’s The Border is located at 718 N Main St. where it has been serving Northwest Georgia with “the best Mexican food north of the border,” according to the restaurant’s slogan.

While The Border is primarily focused on serving Mexican food, the establishment doubles as a bar and focuses heavily on having a “fun and comforting atmosphere.”

Customers have plenty of opportunities to drop by The Border thanks to the restaurant’s open schedule. On Monday through Thursday, those itching for a Tequila and a Fajita can drop by anytime from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday means customers are welcome from 10 a.m to 11 p.m. Saturday welcomes consumers from 11 a.m to 10:30 p.m, and the Border is open from noon to 9:30 p.m. on Sundays.

Being a primary provider of Mexican foods, The Border has all of the standards such as nachos, tacos, fajitas, burritos, steak, quesadillas, and more. The restaurant separates when each food is offered, with certain dishes only being available during lunch time.

Lunch at the restaurant is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and includes a host of “Lunch Specials.” Each Lunch Special mixes and matches an average of 3 items. Lunch Special 3 has a taco, enchilada, rice and beans; Lunch Special 5 has a burrito, taco, and a serving of rice. Appetizers such as the various nachos, chicken fingers, and dips provided can be ordered anytime including lunch.

Mexican food offers various meal options for vegetarians who can chow down on burritos filled with beans instead of meat or salads topped with guacamole. Dessert is a big deal at The Border because customers can try a host of different Mexican sweets such as Mexican Custard, Mexican Ice Cream, Chocolate chimichangas, fried ice cream, or sopapilla with ice cream.

Drinks are a big part of the restaurant’s services.

Beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesdays at The Border serve as “Tequila Tuesdays” where the cost of the restaurant’s various tequila drinks are offered for just under $3.

The Border’s prices are slightly higher than standard. The traditional $7 entre is available, but those with some extra spending money can dine on more expensive meals reaching into the double digits. Drinks are fairly cheap until one delves into the foreign, imported selection where the beverages are more expensive.

Those wishing to see how The Border does Mexican food are urged to visit Cedartown’s Main St. on any day of the week.
