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.

Visited this restaurant for dinner. First time, in general we had a good dinner and a good impression about the place, we enjoyed it. Interior designs are a very authentic fashion,lights make you feel romance, the furniture is comfortable and typically it is Mexican. Food quantity is too much we were not able to finish our meals. Spicy but delicious.... More

the nachos with the red sauce are amazing, however there are a lot of items, specially the steaks, that are not available all the time. it is a very great place for a family dinner

if you wanna have real mexican food, come try el rey del taco in Montreal on Jean-Talon street. alternatively, for franchise style mexican food, you have the once notorious Chipotle. now, this place is next to fuds on andulus and the only reason we walked in here was because fuds was closed and we did not want to wait for...

Food at this restaurant is nothing special, the service was fine. It is located along the Andalus road with good parking space.
