Clean, reasonable pricing and very quick service. The service was good, presentation was good and most of all they were efficient with my time.

I like Tex Mex food, including chains, but the options are usually calorie bombs. Not wanting a heavy lunch during the work day I opted for the healthy version of chicken fajitas and was pleased. Good portion, nice flavor, and the accompanying black beans were good. Service was ok but I would definitely go back after work for a margarita.

I met a few of my friends here for dinner when I was in town. The service was good and the food was OK. No complaints. Just not anything you would see out! If you are a chain food person, you will like it!

I enjoy coming here because they make their own chips and salsa- the chips always taste so fresh!! This is a great place to eat if staying at the Sheraton novi because it you can walk over. I have had great service both times I have visited. Food has been good, will definitely come back.

Nothing remarkable. Salads were large and ok. Nachos were quite good. Service was fine. Probably wouldn't go back - it was convenient to a nearby hotel.

Pretty standard chain mex restaurant - decent food, friendly service, a little pricier than I like to pay - but we all enjoyed it! Love that they have healthy options - we tried the healthy chicken fajitas and really happy. Not the hugest portion but also didn't do major damage with it so all good. Black beans were really good.... More

I often dine at On The Border, but recently they revised their menu from a 6 page selection to a single folded cardboard menu. So disappointing! When I looked over the menu, I immediately noticed that all the grilled items and made from scratch items were gone. These were the BEST. They have now gone to a selection of fast... More
