Visited the restaurant for Saturday early suppertime. It was busy and noisy, with screens showing various sports all over the bar area, where they had seated us at a high table. They have a team server approach, so two people waited on our table. This gave us the feeling of plenty of attention, even though the servers were really busy.... More

If you like Tex-Mex you will love this place! Ordered 2 mesquite grilled fajitas - 1 chicken, 1 steak. Got copious servings with all the extras. My husband ate 1/3 of the total at 1 setting, but I divided the rest into 4 small meals. Yeah - the guy eats a lot, and he didn't even used to like Mexican... More

I usually come here with my wife...or sometimes with friends. It is family friendly and right off the internet. You can get chips as soon as you sit down...or relatively quickly there after. You have many options and opportunisties to make your own combo's. Great place for Families or groups...as long as they are less then 10, but they could... More

Taco Tuesday was great. Had the chicken soft tacos. The chicken was spicy and good. Started out with a bowl of queso. It was very good. Wait staff was very attentive and bathrooms clean - a pet peeve.

We've eaten at several of these to include the Woodbridge location - simply fantastic Tex-Mex. Overall, a great place to eat with fast service and super fresh food.

Went to OTB to get chicken fajitas, queso and sopapillas for $9.99. We sat in a bar booth so didn't expect fast device. Waitress and server were great. Very nice. Chicken fajitas were great. Good dinner

This location definitely redeemed itself in the quality and service one expects with OTB. I came in with my dining bucks, given to me after a horrible experience at a location in MD. The manager and hostess both greeted me and were extremely friendly and welcoming. Our waitress was very attentive, full of smiles, and overall a joy! We ordered... More

Nothing was impressive. The food had good flavor but nothing spectacular. The service was really slow. We waited a while for orders to be taken and then waited again for drinks to arrive.

My wife and I have always loved On The Border but we have been disappointed in this location. The service was very ordinary. Several omissions and mistakes were handled with an apology but no offer to correct them. We ordered 5 beef empanadas but received 3 chicken and 2 beef. The server promised to bring 2 other forgotten items and... More

We've enjoyed this chain in another state, so tried the one in Lake Ridge and were not disappointed. The service from greeting to departure was excellent. The food was very good and generously portioned. We may have to keep enjoying Fajita Wednesdays, or branch out to other days' specials.
