I went here with a colleague for a lunch meeting. We ordered lunch and I also used an emailed voucher for a $2 queso with chili. The queso was delayed, then served without chili and then charged full price. The taste of the food, despite being served things differently than what was ordered, was fine; service was very slow and... More

Fun atmosphere, good food and nice drinks. Helped that I stayed in hotel across the street so no need to drive. Very easy to have more than a couple drinks, they are delicious.

Ack. Went on a Tuesday night and waited only 5 minutes to get seated. then waited 10 minutes for drink order to be taken and at least 10 minutes for drinks to arrive. I've got to complain that there were no prices on the drink menu, not acceptable to me .Premium Magauritas were second rate at best, with the awful... More

My husband and I went to On the Border today for lunch today. (It is Veteran's Day) They were advertising free lunches for veterans on TV and although we are not, I wanted to support a place that would be that generous to our vets. Atmosphere: I love the vibe at On the Border. It is bright and cheery and... More

Food and service are fine but this is a very popular place...don't expect peace and quiet. Staff are very accommodating and the menu is broad.

I just made my last trip to OTB. The last three times we've been it's the same. Poor service, seriously slow, waited ten minutes just to place a drink order. Chips are undercooked and greasy the last two times we were there. It's also been dirty. Dirty utensils, and grungy table tops. Today they got my order wrong, and they... More

The drink order was out after a few minutes. The food was brought out in a very timely manner and was very good as always. The food and... More

When we entered there was a lot of empty tables and 60% of them had food/dishes from prior diners on them. The hostess told us there was a 20-30 minute wait for a table which at first I could not understand with only two sets of couples ahead of us. It dawned on me that the reason for the wait... More

We stopped here after a long day walking around Boston. The Margaritas were delicious, guacamole even better and the service was quick! We will definitely return!
