Good food, great server and Raphael balloon

We placed our name to be seated and they use a sms texting service and an app to tell you when the table is ready. We were seated in about 15 minutes. This is a chain restaurant which we have been at before. Our servers were excellent, one was very patient with our son who talked to her for a... read more

OK, so we were tired after a three plus hour drive, but this is not a restaurant to relax and unwind in. The warehouse-like interior has no sound absorbing materials so it sounds like a cross between a school cafeteria and a busy train station. The food is average, the wait staff seemed exhausted and harried by 8pm. So unless... More

Typical tex-mex place. Good margaritas and the fix at your table guacamole is great! I'm not a cilantro fan, and they're very flexible about NOT adding a dash of cilantro to finish the dish. Service can be slow, although I'm not sure if this is because of the wait staff or the kitchen being backed up. All in all if... More

I'm not one to frequent chain restaurants, but I love On the Border. They have the best Margaritas and Cornonaritas in the area, not to mention a great happy hour menu and specials. I also love the casual atmosphere, and that we can go with or without the kids. The service is consistent--not horrible, but not great. And yeah, it... More

Mexican food is not our daily food. We had a lot of choice. The menu has different sizes so you don't have the gigantic portion if you don't want it. The grandchildren wanted the brownie with ice cream so badly that they could not wait for it. They had regular food first like nice kids. Anne and I had 100... More

I went here for Dinner one night after work. The service was awful. I never got drink refills. I was served the wrong food. And was practically ignored. I got a sample platter to try a few things, since this was my first time at On the Border. When I did get the right food it was dried out and... More

We stopped for dinner at 5pm. The restaurant was filthy. The dinner rush had not yet hit so why was the floor trashed? If the dining room looks like this what does the kitchen look like? It was so dirty we got up & left before we ordered. We have been here many times before, not sure what happened but... More
