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

I had never been to On the Border, but after seeing their TV commercials, talked my husband into trying it. It was excellent!! We were there for happy hour and enjoyed well-priced drinks. The freshly-made guacamole was wonderful (but maybe a bit over-priced), chips and salsa were great. My husband had a green chile smothered burrito and I had enchiladas... More

We have been to OTB several times, this is always my vote when in Colorado Springs. The food is very good, and we really appreciated Benjamin, our waiter. Benjamin was right there to greet us, has a wealth of knowledge of the menu. He provided suggestions and one quality that seems to be missing in many places..... he checked back... More

Ate at the restaurant with my cousin and we ordered appitizers that were big enough to share and a couple of cocktails to wash them down with. Our server was very polite and timely, which I always appreciate, but some of the other staff made me anxious. I'm not sure if they had too many people on or what, but... More

The bar staff here is great, the go out of their way to provide the customer service so many places lack today. The usual chips and salsa, were good, i prefer the "hot/caliente" style which they usually have, so pretty good. Wish they would go over the drink specials a little more but bar staff doing well. The food seems... More

Service was quick, efficient, and when a special order was wrong, they fixed it quickly. Food was hot and good. Not the quality you get at a local place, but good for a chain, and price was decent.

We go to this restaurant some what regularly (once or twice a year) but hadn't been in a while. Looks like they updated the decor and their menu. SOme reasonably healthy but still yummy looking things on the menu. The chicken fajitas we had were very tasty. We also had the quesso and it tasted a little burned.

The guacamole salad was fabulous which is a big draw but everything else was just okay. The food was not hot, just warm. I have eaten at much better "On the Border" restaurants.
