In my opinion, if a mexican restaurant has good chips and salsa, that's always a good predetermination if the rest of the food is going to be good. Well, the chips and salsa were excellent, as well as the margaritas, as well as our dinner entries, and the service! We started at the bar, as we waited for a table.... More

Well my husband and I decided to give On The Border 1 more chance . Our last experience was not good at all we thought maybe it was a fluke, 2nd visit was equally disappointing. The chicken tacos where dripping with fat. My husband was unable to eat after 1 bit. We told our waitress she simply removed the plate... More

my brother and I went here. We had fajitas. They brought us chicken when we ordered steak, but they fixed it, and the steak was amazing! Our waiter and bus boy were great. I had a margarita. It was delicious. We would go again

went here for the first time last weekend. Chips and salsa were good. We ordered queso to go with it and it was on the runny side. Good flavor but seemed watered down. I ordered cheese enchiladas which just tasted like rubber. Hardly any flavor. Also seemed a bit pricey for what we ordered. Probably would not go back.

I used to go here quite a bit when they opened 10+ years ago. It has gone downhill since then. The food (all you can eat enchiladas) was subpar and it took a long time to get our food, regardless of the fact that half the restaurant was empty. Our server was painful. We had to ask for things repeatedly... More

... and too salty. Pluses - nice server, $2 draft Coors Light special, salsa with chips very fresh and spicy, and short turn around after order. Food itself, as I said.

Our favorite Mexican restaurant. Great service. Drink specials through the week are really good deals. We go there at least once a week.

Do NOT waste your money here, go to Taco Bell! Service was absolutely terrible, I have had microwave chicken that was better than my Fajita that was supposed to be fresh. My soft tortilla shells smelled bad, and the rice was dry. My husband ordered the endless enchilada special, and was made to wait between refills of the enchiladas. The... More

I go here because this is decent Tex Mex and because they have the Chicken Flautas that I like.. Well they have done away with the Chicken Flautas so now I had to find something else to like.. The tacos are pretty good and the fajitas are always a sure bet.. Be sure and get the white queso it is... More
