Spent 20 minutes waiting as waitresses and bartender looked at me and ignored me as i was waiting for service. I looked and saw two waitresses having personal conversations, while i waited and waited. Finally, walked out and went to chillis next door and received immediate service.

First time at On the Border, last time at On the Border. Salsa and refried beans were the only things that had any flavor, huge let down.

I wanted to try their Margaritas, so we decided to get there on Happy hours. It was Friday evening and place was quite busy. We decided to use bar side (so don't have to wait for the table in dinning area). Frozen Margaritas were really worth the visit: big glass of tasty drink was only $3. We tried some empanadas...

I was disappointed to find out they did away with their wonderful Bloody Mary's. The food is generally consistently good here. The service is adequate. Seems their turnover in waitstaff is high. They are always training a newbe & we seem to get them every time we eat here. Magaritas here are still good.

We felt like celebrities here. We are from Canada and were visiting Texas for a Cowboy's game. They wanted us to so badly do their survey and when I told them I couldn't use my phone because we were out of country, the waitress had me use her phone! They were so nice - gave us a free sample of... More

On the Border consistently has some of the best chicken fajitas in town. Served with fresh flour tortillas, choice of beans, Mexican rice and all the other condiments that make fajitas great. Love this place.

The atmosphere here is great. It is always upbeat and food is good. I am a fan of the Border Bowl with chicken and i always add shrimp to make it a great combo.
