I had been on this place for a business lunch with 9 more people. We got great service and appetizers were nice. I had fajitas, everything was delicious.

Food was ok but no one offered more napkins and when I asked for hot sauce, they brought me a bottle that had a quarter inch of liquid in it so I asked for more, the second contained about a half inch. No restaurant should ever serve near empty containers. Not inexpensive either.

I organized a group of 14 friends for an impromptu dinner. The service was top notch, our drinks and chip bowls were filled without asking. Food was served in a timely manner with no mistakes. Unbelievable for a busy Saturday at 5:00. Love great service and food.

Atmosphere is festive, & wait staff is very pleasant. I enjoy "On The Border" much. :-) I come from time to time, & it just feels like a refreshing break from the norm.

Went to On the Border Restaurant in Novi, Michigan for the first time for my husband's 60th birthday. The waitress explained the menu and how things work there since this was our first time there. There were several food options and it was hard to decide what we wanted since everything sounded good. We did finally narrow down our food... More

Extremely recommend this restaurant. The food, drinks and ambiance are fantastic. The bartenders are very friendly and make the best drinks. It is really nice to go into a restaurant and they remember you and also remember your drink. THe staff is so nice and we always get excellent service. This is our Friday night out.
