Service was quick and the food was delicious! Excellent margaitas. We have no complaints. The fact that it was right next door to the red roof inn we were staying was a plus.

Not bad for chain tex-mex. Didint have a marg, so can't comment. Service was fine and the empanada was actually very good. Its what you would expect from a tex-mex chain.

My favorite Mexican place when I visit. It may be a chain but it's excellent. Had a get together there and they accommodated party well. Good service.

When traveling, I usually always seek out an On the Border if there is one around and I don't know the area too well. Like majority of them, this one didn't skip a beat. Food was great, servers were super friendly, and everything arrived fairly quickly (it was a busy night too). Some menu enhancements I feel could be used... More

the food was fresh. and the little one had a blast watching them make fresh tortillas. Service was fast and attentive, I wish they had the chain in our home town.

The night we went they were short-staffed because I think the management wasn't expecting such a busy weekend. The service was very slow but the wait staff was very friendly and we weren't in a rush, so it was OK. We really enjoyed the food, but they were a little sparse with the meat. I had fajitas, and it seemed... More

This is a great chain restaurant. One of the best. I stayed next door at the Red Roof Inn. The restaurant front door is steps from the motel. The food is tex mex and the mood is festive. There is a restaurant section and a bar area. I spent some time in the bar area where the customers appear to... More

If I could give less than one star I would. The food was fine, but the service was terrible. The waitress took two people's drink order, and disappeared for 10 minutes, while the other two people in our party waited to order their drink. My husband ordered a red sangria and was really disappointed with it (after waiting over 20... More
