Great Ambiance

Went during the Holiday Week with the family. Great service and atmosphere. Servers were courteous and professional as in our first visit. Still unchanged was the food still overly salty. Go for the variety of very good tequila mixes.

Had a craving for Mexican food. We chose the right place. Staff was great, steak was cooked perfectly. Just a nice meal.

I'm going to start my review by explaining why this place is always empty: 1. Service is horrible- the server we got was Jennifer and she's the worst to me. I order a side of sour cream and instead I received someone left overs, it had lettuce,onions,cabbage and guacamole. When I told her to please exchange it, her reply was... More

We were staying at a hotel down the street from a shopping center where On the Border is. We like Mexican food and while this is more Tex-Mex, we decided to give it a try. We arrived around 5:30 and realized it was happy hour, so we made our way to the bar area. The happy hour has margarita and... More

On The Border is one of my favorite restaurants in this area. I like the whole food selection. I have been here for family gatherings and celebrating my wife's birthday. The drinks are good. My wife's favorite is the Margarita on the rocks. I like "pinchos and quesadillas, and my usual grilled salmon. she loves the grilled shrimps

I was attended 30 after I got to my table and another 30 minutes to get my food I even had to wait a very long time to get my bill and I was the manager who was attending me, the food is really good that's the only reason I keep coming here because the service is extremely poor

Three of us visited this location for lunch with the anticipation of having great Mexican food that On the Border restaurants have come to be known for, but were definitely disappointed. The waiter was not helpful and to be honest downright rude. We ordered the "Guacamole Live" where it is prepared tableside and he expressed in Spanish "are you really... More

My first visit, and my last. I was alone, entered for dinner at 6:30 PM, and wondered why there were only 3 patrons in the whole restaurant. Very nice place, I thought. I was greeted and seated by the manager, had a nice waitress who gave me good service and ordered a "Steak Fajita Bowl" which costs $10.49, and had... More
