Recently I visited On the Border in Glendale, AZ. I stopped in the bar for happy hour. When I requested any meal suggestions, I was told of the unlimited enchiladas on Mondays. I bit and enjoyed a variety of selections. The mole sauce was a...More

The food had no taste what so ever. The best thing about this restaurant was the chips and salsa. Why is it so hard to find a good Mexican restaurant this close to the Mexican border?! Get it together Arizona!

I do like the family style way of serving rice and beans. I'm still searching for the perfect taco salad and didn't find it here. I guess I'm picky. The enchilada Suizas were tasty. Matt was our server and very personable. We had to order...More

We are fairly regular customers because we enjoy the house Margaritas and the food. It's typical Mexican cuisine that is served fresh, hot, and tasty. There is almost always some kind of special. Most recently, they offered "Endless mini-tacos" for $5. The first plate arrives...More
