We had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite a while as we both like Mexican, but good Mexican is hard to find. Unfortunately, we've had much better. It started with a 10 minute wait for anyone to come by, which when then finally did they dropped off two bowls of hot salsa right in front of our 3... More

We have visited this restaurant often, our most recent trip was disappointing. Our service was fine, although possibly deceitful. There are nachos and salsa served shortly after you arrive, this is one of the restaurant's signatures. They are crispy and quite good. Our server asked if she should bring us some guacamole, too...it was made out to be included. We... More

I had received several emails to try this restaurant. I thought how fun "Taco Tuesday" well never again. After being seated were ordered our drinks and then placed an order for an appetizer and our meals. Our waitress brought our appetizer sat it on the table and left no plates to share. After a few minutes of looking for her... More

It has been a while since we were at On the Border restaurant, now I remember why. This other couple wanted to go, so we figured, give them another try. I am sorry that we did. I had a citrus salad, and if it wasn't for the oranges, there would have been no taste at all. My wife had the... More

My friends and I went to this restaurant after shopping at the Great Lakes Crossing outlets. It was located right beside Chili's outside the mall. First recommendation, if you want mexican type food and are deciding between the two, GO TO CHILIS. We went here because we thought it would be nice to try something new...plus they also had a...

This was a decent restaurant near our hotel. The portions were big so you will not go hungry. The taste was average - we enjoyed it for a regular supper. Not fine dining but fit the bill for us that night.

I took my mother for dinner before a movie. Our server was friendly, the food was classic production and not very tasty at all. Bland and over priced for what you got. Originally they sat us at a table that was wobbly and unstable...then they moved us to another table that was grimmy and had food and crud all along... More
