We were waited by the bar server as we decided to sit at the bar. However, during our time here, I noticed that the bar server was nit only ckeaning up the... More

We have eaten twice in this restaurant over the last three nights. On choosing what to eat I told our waitress, Jamie, that I was a non meat eater and she was able to help me make the right choices and showed that the restaurant had great flexibility in mixing and matching dishes and she steered me clear of any...

The chips were made with old oil..the plates are incredibly small for what your paying. I ordered two orders of their chicken fajita tacos. The tortillas were stail and worst of all there was almost no chicken or even veggies in the tacos. The slab of white dry rice that they slabed on was terrible..I felt disrespected.

Been there twice and don't think I'll ever go back. Portions are salty as heck. Not sure if they actually call this Mexican food because it sure is not. They serve a good Margarita though and have good beer selection. Food lacks authenticity and flavor, not salt!

We ate a late lunch at the restaurant. My husband said his meal of enchiladas was delicious. I had the enchiladas and chile relleno's and it was very good. The atmosphere was casual and nice. Prices were fair for lunch, they had specials. We would go back again.

great fresh food. All prepared to order. Even the chips and taco shells were made right there. The bartenders were friendly but a little slow on service. they seemed to be understaffed

We went to On the Border Mexican Grill with friends. The night began with Margaritas in large glasses to start. The chips and salsa were a nice touch and got you in the mood for mexican night. The sauces were good but not real hot and chips were fresh and crunchy tasted like that probably make them there. The orders... More
