the food was good but the server mess up our order. She did not bring us what we order the first time. She got the order mix up on what we had order. But other than that every thing was good. it was a clear place.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and fantastic food. It didn't take too long to get our meals but you don't mind waiting for freshly prepared meals. Our waitress was very friendly and checked on us often if we needed anything and to top up our drinks.

I have tried the others and I found that On The Border has the best out of them all! When I use the take-out the food has the same great taste that I really like. They can get really buzzy at times and the service suffers greatly, but because on the distance that I drive to get there I wait.... More

I love this restaurant as a whole. But this one has the freshest sala and warm tortillas for us to eat on while we waited for our entrees. I ordered the Create Your combo - house salad, chicken tortilla soup and beef taco. The chicken tortilla soup was very tasty. The chicken tinga was seasoned very well and the rice... More

Stopped by on the way to Red Oak, and grabbed lunch with a co-worker. The server was great, attentive to our needs, and the food came out pretty quick. The food is typical OTB corporate food, not horrible, not life changing.

I ordered take out and found the food to be typical (good/high) quality of this chain. I'd eat here again as it's one of the best Tex-Mex chains around.

The food was good for a chain. The soup was off but a issue came up and management handled it perfect. We might be back.

The floor is nasty and dirty; the empty tables remained uncleaned; the place is just loud. I will not recommend this place

Arrived at the restaurant at 5:00 pm to meet friends and have appetizers and drinks. First impressions: Dirty floor, filthy floor. It was littered with corn chips, dirty, used napkins, straws, etc, probably left over from the lunch crowd. Felt obliged to stay because friends selected the restaurant. Why wasn't it swept by 5:00 pm? The glass windows and glass... More
