On Z Border

On Z Border is good option for Mexican food fan.. My favorite order is the Taco Melt "chicken" with the roasted taco or tortilla.. You can start always with the complimentary chips and salsa starter.. For families the indoor play ground would considered a bonus.

Very good food, good service. Possibly the best Tex-Mex food I've ever tried in Saudi, just missing the cervezas and margaritas.

I have to change my review because the restaurant is getting worse. It needs maintenance especially the toilets and the play ground. They need to restock some of the menu foods like the beef brisket which as I understood they have many times complained to the administration about but they don't care.

I've now eaten at On the Border several times, usually before or after medical appointments at IMC or DSFH, both of which are close by. The construction around the place does make it somewhat hard to get there, but it's not impossible. It's next to Fuddruckers and Harley Davidson. I love Mexican food, so I always enjoy eating here.
