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!!

We visit Mexico often and never miss an opportunity to visit "On the Border". The menu has many new items and other favorites seem to have improved. Margarita 's are a little sweet. (no sugar in Margarita's) A fun place to grab a bite to eat.

I visited on a Thursday night (8:30pm) and it was very crowded and noisy. I sat at the bar and the service was very good. The chips and salsa were delicious. I had the La Bandera enchilada plate, which is 3 different enchiladas, sort of like a sampler. It was okay. I think I will get the enchiladas suizas next... More
