We come to this place every time we go to the nearby outlet mall and we are finding the quality of food going downhill. Tonight I ordered Chicken Fajita Salad. There was not much variety of greens in it & the chicken strips were bland. Even the dressing, mango vinaigrette (?) couldn't salvage the meal as the dressing itself looked... More

I dine there every so often. Sometimes with a family member, sometimes with extended family ( large group of people with kids ). Service is always prompt. Waitstaff is efficient & professional, so it's not embarrassing to suggest this place to family/friends. I always have been able to relax there and enjoy my meal. For my taste, the food is... More

This meal was really bad. The guacamole had no flavour and the enchiladas were nasty. Tasted like they were heated in a microwave and the Mexican rice was questionable. Service was also only ok. There is a reason why this restaurant is rated so poorly. Stay away.

This place isn't bad. It's average. You won't be wowed or disappointed. You would go back, but there are other places that are better.

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
