I actually used the take out and went back to my hotel room. Plenty of food. All the utensils were included. The service was good. My order was wrong but they corrected quickly. Realized it was wrong before I left the restaurant. Probably wouldn't have been too happy if I had gotten back to the room and found out. Always... More

Went for late lunch with a few friends. Greeting was nice, we were seated right away. Our waitress brought us chips and salsa (which are Excellent! ) She got our drinks and took our order, all good so far. Then we waited soooo long for the food. The waitress never came by or said why? I was pressed for time,... More

We were able to walk over to the restaurant from our hotel. Very convenient. Friendly greeting and nice decor. Good reasonably priced Mexican specials. The menu even has some low calorie items. Lots of free chips to go with a draft beer. And the draft selection is very good. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Certainly a good place... More

Came here while passing through the area. Chips were plentiful and salsa was good. The staff was very attentive. The margaritas were big, my companions had them, but I still needed to drive 1.5 hours so I stuck to water. Grilled fish tacos were good. Nothing special, but not bad either. The side of guac was in a tiny cup... More

We hadn't been to On the Border in a while. I remembered it being good with a HUGE menu, and Negra Modelo beer, my fav! My lady asked for a table near warmth as the air conditioner was on 32º. (It seemed to her) Our waitress asked if she was still cold after bringing our drinks. She was. Our waitress... More

Sometimes we have come here and had a wait but this time, no wait, good service and food as good as usual. The portions may have seemed a little smaller but they used to be huge so now they are just large AND we still had left overs. Enjoyed the fajitas and a make your own pick 3 as well... More

I think it was a Tuesday. The very nice bartender dude clued me in. I had to almost force myself to get a second order because the first round was so delicious AND filling. And the margaritas! I treated myself to the premium-priced "house favorite" and the first one went down so easy I opted for another. Fortunately, I was... More

The service here is awesome! Everyone is super friendly and the food is amazing! You get unlimited free chips and salsa and their frozen watermelon margaritas are the best! We love On the Border!!

this is my fav texmex place to go. I generally stay away from chains but the flavors are good, and drinks are not bad.
