About what you would expect

Not fast food, but far from Authentic, we did enjoy it so don't get me wrong....just level set your expectations. Service was very good and it is a clean, nice place to dine.

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

Then they forgot to bring my boyfriends food, he left without eating. We had to beg our waiters to... More

I love On the Border, specially the Miami Lakes location. I always order Steak Fajitas with a Perfect Patron Margarita. Alex the manager is very attentive. Congratulations OTB ML!

Maybe we came at a bad time, or the greeter was not having a good day. She bypassed us twice before I asked her. She said: you're next. And when I asked why two other couples had been seated before us even though they got there after us, all she could do was bat her eyes and say I'm sorry.... More

Gave this restaurant a try and was highly disappointed in the food. This place is not authentic by any means. The chips and salsa was good but that was it. If your looking for authentic Mexican try elsewhere.
