My young gentlemen favorite.

Every month we have to go to this restaurant, great atmosphere and delicious food specially the Nachos that they serve you as soon as you sit with the special dip. Also the drinks are special. N.B. It's at Alhamra Jeddah, Andalus st. not Red Sea Mall.

Great service, good food, huge portions. We ended up here after another restaurant was family only on weekends. The appetizer sampler fills up two people before the main courses even arrived. Be careful not to order too much. I would go again... too bad there are no real margaritas.

As close as you can get to Mexican food in Jeddah. Food is good and tasty but i think they modified the firey taste to a much more milder one which is a shame but all in all it is good value for money.

It is simply one of our favorites restaurants. We love the food and the different varities but we hate that they always run of supplies so we can't have our favorites dishes everytime. The staff is very friendly and always smiling.

I have been going to On The Border in Jeddah for the last three years and the food and service has always been excellent. I have introduced many friends to this restaurant and they agree with my ratings. Thanks for being consistent.
