Keen-to-impress service

We were staying in the hotel next door and sneaked through the fence. We didn't expect too much from a chain but the restaurant seemed very keen to please - complimentary dorritos and salsa dip on arrival were refreshed later. Margaritas were $3 each and very powerful. Avocado grilled enchiladas... read more

We have been dining at On The Border for years, and we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. The service is great. The cheese dip and the salsa are some of the best in town. If you are looking for good Tex-Mex in Baton Rouge, On The Border is a great choice.

As always, excellent service, excellent food and most excellent margaritas! Our go-to place when we want a cold margarita and an outside table.

People can have different experiences in the same restaurant. My experience at On The Border was quite pleasant. First of all my wife and I had a wonderful time and a wonderful waitress who was efficient and who checked on us on a regular basis. Food preparation did take a little longer that I would have preferred, but this happens... More

I was looking for some good Mexican food. Well this is not the place, horrible food from the beginning. Got the order wrong to begin with then brought me the saltiest chicken tacos. Not fit to eat. Bad experience . Bad food.

It's a chain, you probably know what to expect. The food was good and the service was great. We ate there for lunch. The salsa has a lot of cilantro, which I like, and the chips are made fresh in-house and served warm.

We liked that the restaurant was close to hotel but the food is yet to be desired. Hopefully they will improve their cooking.

I have been a loyal fan of OTB but I am going to give it a time out. The last three times the service has been lacking and the food is just ok. First the chips have seemed stale or really oily. The salsa is overly spicy for me but I see others enjoying it. My mini street style tacos... More
