The restaurant has a nice authentic Mexican feel. The food is very good and our server was attentive helpful and friendly. This is a good place to go. The prices were amazing. An item off the kids menu plus a drink and sunday is only 5 bucks!

I stopped in for a late lunch, and ordered the brisket taco. The entree had good flavor but a lot more onion strings and sauce than meat. I guess it is their way of cutting calories. The service was awfully slow for a late lunch hour with fewer than 10 tables occupied.

We've been to this restaurant several times. It was never great but it was never bad. Not so much tonight. My husband, son and I decided to sit in the bar area and have dinner. We ordered our food and waited forever to receive it. The place was not too busy so there really was no excuse. Our waitress, Heather,... More

I love their salsa! Their service is always great. Quick in and out at lunch time. They are very good at customizing dishes to your preferences.

Krista was the best waitress/server I've ever had. She was vibrant, happy and took her customer service attitude to the max. It clearly shows when people care abou their job and service. She was wonderful! The food & drinks were great and the bill was even better. Great place to dine!

We stopped in craving a Mex fix. Service was indifferent, drinks were watered down and the food was uninspired. We started at a high top-waited 15 minutes for it to be bussed-after the waitress passed us for the 5th time we moved!

Took my son here while staying at a hotel nearby. We wanted just dessert. Once the waitress heard that, her smile left her face and she ignored us the rest of the time we were there, even turned her head and walked right on by while I was calling her for a straw. I understand they make money on tips... More

This is a chain restaurant with nothing to make it stand out from any other On the Border. Our waitress was okay, and the food was, too. You know you can count on On the Border for a certain standard of Mexican food with no surprises.

Saturday early eve was crowded with a 20 minute wait however we went directly to open seats at the Bar. The Beer was cold and the Salsa hot, the way we like it.
