We ate here for dinner. Though it was Mother's Day they sat us immediately. Very friendly helpful staff. The food took a while and it was not hot, only warm. It was average, nothing special. Nothing was terrible but not great either.

Visited OTB with a group of friends. They were very busy. We sat outside and for as busy as they were had good service. Food was served hot and was good. Drinks had a good amount of alcohol. Good experience.

After a long Christmas weekend of turkey, ham, and the trimmings, On The Border was a good choice. Prompt service, good food, and a lively atmosphere. SW Tacos and Empanadas were delicious.

OK. I know "On the Border" is a chain restaurant but it has outstanding enchiladas and attentive friendly service. Haley never ley my drink get down to half full before she brought me another. The salsa has a unique lime flavor that I liked a lot and the cheese dip was delicious. I had a great experience and will be... More

That's not a bad thing; in fact it is a very good thing. A Meltdown and a bowl of queso makes for a good beginning to a great evening

We had lunch there today and it was very good. The salsa was delicious. I got some queso and it was perfect, it was thick but not too thick. I had the chimichanga and it was very good. Our waitress was Brittany and she was fantastic! She was very fast and very attentive. She got our refills, drinks and chips... More

I agree with some of the other reviews that some OTBs are hit or miss, but this one was great. We went on a Saturday night and they were really busy, but they were also fully staffed. We were seated pretty fast and had our chips and salsa right away and drinks soon after. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.... More

First of all, let me say I have NOTHING negative to say about this location, nothing. It's clean and comfortable. Staff are attentive and knowledgable. Plenty of TVs in bar area. Nice patio area (when it's not 103 degrees outside). If your hungry for Mexican food it's an excellent source - but it's essentially what you can expect from any... More
