Predictable American Mexican food with good service.

We have eaten at this On the Border for five years and this location continues to meet and exceed expectations for a chain Mexican restaurant. Good variety on the lunch menu (Monday - Friday, open until 4 pm) ranging from lunch combos, burritos, and chimichangas at $7.99 up to steak fajitas at... read more

I understand that genuine, homemade Mexican flavors are hard to come by, but I've had better food from Taco Bell. I had chicken enchiladas and they were absolutely rancid. The only thing I enjoyed were the chips and salsa. Gross place. Never again.

We came on a Saturday evening, hungry for nachos. I love their salsa and the tableside guac. Jennifer was our server and she did a great job. My daughter loved her kids menu nachos and I ordered the stacked nachos. Super yummy, great atmosphere, and the manager checked in to ask how everything was. On The Border is much better... More

Eat there frequently, always good food & great service (some of the best waiters & waitresses of anywhere I have been). Have been there dozens of times & the food has always been fantastic.

We loved this place. We were very impressed. The restaurant is very clean. Waitress was friendly and food was amazing. Great atmosphere. Too bad we don't have On the Border in California this chain is pretty much better than the one in California.

Not a bad restaurant and not the greatest. They had 8.99 all you can eat enchiladas when was there and they were decent and you can't beat that price. Had a great waitress too.

We love On the Border! Fantastic food and a great selection. We also love Eric, who works in the bar. He is fantastic. He is very attentive and gets our order right. He also has a wonderful attitude. Hubby and I are empty nesters so we love to sit in the bar section for a little peace and quiet. You... More

I have never had the "taco meat" that they have. I did look out back for dog food cans , did not see any. The service was just as bad. NOT A GOOD place. Nasty service, nasty food. Not recommended . Do not eat here if you value your taste buds.

I went to a late lunch with my mother and two of my sisters. We love the salsa and chips! Best chips in town! I talked my sister into having La Bandera enchiladas because it samples three meats and three chile sauces. It was as good as usual. Their refried beans aren't really refried, which is good, too. The margaritas... More
