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

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

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
