This has been our favorite Place for Mexican food. We tend to go other than traditional mealtimes so service has always been good. Chips and salsa appetizer always no charge. Our group is usually my wife and I and one of her lady friends. Have not been there for a month or so but must check out rumor that it... More

When I want a margarita this is where I head and get the sangria swirl...best chips and salsa too. The prices are very reasonable and I've never been disappointed with the food.

Thought I would try this place again when I got a coupon for Free Stack of chips (basically nachos with chicken and the works). Sat in the bar and watched the baseball game. The bartender was our server and he was very good. Quick to get us drinks, made sure our water was always full and took our order in... More

I'm not a huge fan of Tex Mex anyway, I'd rather go to Flamingos or anywhere else, but we tried On The Border again for their great salad. Yes, salad....when the only good thing you can find here is a salad, you know not to bother. We ordered for 4 of us and were in the far corner, we were... More

This is my go-to place for a Tex Mex style Mexican food fix. The food is dependably good, the atmosphere that of a rustic Cantina. We ordered Mix and match Fajitas with Shrimp/Beef, Ranchiladas, and Chile con Queso. Everything was delicious.

Food is not very good. Service is always awful. Have been three times and service has always been awful. Waiting 10 minutes for a person to seat us when it is slow was annoying. Waiting 15 minutes for our order to be taken. 20 minutes for food to arrive. Staff is not attentive at all. Have had to get up... More

Strongly suggest coming here for the Taco Thursday deal. You get half price on the "deluxe" tacos which are very good. Most of the food isn't anything special to write home about and the prices for these deluxe tacos are a bit on the extreme side if you get them any other day.

We went here in December twice in about a week for lunch. The first time everything went okay, the tableside guacamole was good, the entrees ordered by all in our party were good. However, the second visit a week later didn't go as well. The waiter took our order and we waited and waited. At a point the waiter came... More

We went this evening into the bar for a nice get away drink and appetizers. We go there often. We will never go back. As we were entering the front door a customer was complaining to the manager about the horrendous wait and terrible service. We were one of 4 tables occupied in the bar with 2 tables on the... More
