Great Tex Mex fare

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. This is a message to the administration :... More

The food here is authentic Tex-Mex like the United States. My wife and I and other friends have been here several times. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Jeddah. Their burritos and fajitas and all their food is very good. I would highly recommend coming here!

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. I've... More

Good atmosphere, decent service but most important good food. I like it and so is my family. I guess the only problem is the construction works around, making arrival a little bit difficult but once there, you will enjoy. Order spicy!

The best Mexican restaurant in all of ksa as far as I'm concerned. This is one of my favorite places to eat but beware the portions are quite large and heavy so you may collapse into a food coma.

OTB is definitely one of my favorite food spots in the city. Being part of our business chain, I have visited OTB a couple of times and the food has been excellent. A little different from the similar menu at its sister outlet Chilis, OTB has got more attraction to the Mexican spice world. And boy it's good. The tacos... More

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.
