The food was pretty good and was not expensive. But the service was outstanding! A good server can make an evening wonderful, and a bad server can ruin it. Ours was the best. Her name was Jennifer F.. If you go there, be sure to ask for her. We both had different types of enchiladas. Our margaritas were more than... More

I, literally, had to excuse myself to go to the restroom to throw-up! The restroom had obviously been frequented with other vomiters. Never again.

My husband and I come here every chance we get. We have to con ourselves into thinking we are not obsessed with this resturant! The food is amazing and delicious. They make it to your liking (which we never made requests, because its just that delicious just the way they make it). The waiters and waitresses smile non stop and... More

I would say the best thing about my experience was the dessert. I was in a party of 4 and we tried churros and the molten cake. Very, very good. The food was not bad but I do not think it was anything to rave over. The waitress and staff were very nice. I don't know if I should have... More

We had a wonderful team lunch here to celebrate bdays. They joined multiple tables to accommodate us and gave us a wonderful table at the back. The lights on the chandeliers and the walls behind gave us a cantina feel. We got complimentary chips n salsa and u have got to try the three alarm spicy salsa. We got the... More

Our group group of 12 (-1) had a great get together from 6PM till after 9PM. We ordered from all over the menu and it was all terrific and very nice portions. Several had to get boxes to take the extras home. We had a very cathartic time discussing the latest events in our lives, kids, grandkids, etc. Highly recommended... More

I have never had a bad meal at this On the Border. I've tried multiple entree's and a variety of appetizers and the food is always excellent. Their servers are always friendly and positive about their work but where I will not give On the Border a free pass is their service in general. I've never had a good experience... More

This place is typical of a chain Mexican restaurant. The food is just so so to me and there is usually a line to get in.

This is our go-to restaurant. We are there several times a month. It's got great food at typical chain prices. But you get free unlimited chips and salsa.
