Satisfies my yearning for Mexican food very well. Margaritas are good and don't break the bank. Sit in bar for outstanding friendly service.

Not outstanding, but very good. I especially like it when weather permits outside seating, great for grandkids as well.

It had been some time since I had been to this restaurant. Last time I was very impressed with the food and the service. I went during the afternoon and this time it was a different story. While the service was good, the food was a disappointment. My meal was bland without the flavor I expect from this particular chain.... More

Food and service were good. Seating could have been better. Put 6 adults in a booth, which made it a bit crowded with our coats and women's purses. Food was fresh and the nacho chip were still hot. We will go back for more!

My family (group of 9, including 3 children aged 7-11) visited OTB on a Wednesday evening at around 7:30pm. There was no wait & we were seated quickly, although it took some time for our server to stop by our table. I had downloaded a coupon for free queso on my smartphone, so we ordered that right away, along with... More

This is the only OTB we've ever been to, but we have been multiple times. The service is usually very good and the place is often busy, especially on the weekends, you may wait to get in. Everyone gets tortilla chips to start in a large basket and the thing I personally like is that they give everyone at the... More
