After working in my hotel room for several hours longer than I anticipated, I finally made my way down the road for dinner and I pulled in to On the Border. I couldn't wait to get my favorite meal there...brisket tacos. It was late so there weren't many people in the restaurant. I was promptly seated and my order was... More

Had a good business lunch today. The service was prompt and speedy. We were out in less than 45 minutes. The food was very good. This is worth the money and time. Definitely coming back for dinner soon.

I have a terrible gluten allergy (not celiac but can relate) so finding a place to eat on the road is a challenge. This restaurant (not all On the Borders do so verify at different locations ) has a separate fryer for their tortilla chips so you can eat with confidence. They also have a separate gluten free menu.

My fiance and I went here for lunch because we had a gift card. We went there mid-afternoon so it was quiet. We were seated promptly but near the kitchen where we heard a constant high pitched noise. Almost as soon as we sat down, our waiter asked if we were ready to order. We hadn't even glanced at the... More

We have had bad luck at this restaurant. Food is usually good but the service is hit or miss. Last night was a miss. We stopped to celebrate a birthday. My wife ordered a margarita, no salt. When the waiter brought a frozen margarita and my wife complained, he said "Sorry but I'm new and I hit the wrong button."... More
