My husband and myself come here quite a lot. This location is very clean, and kept in well shape. The workers are always very helpful, diet friendly, and just overall good service providers. On our last visit, we ordered the "live guacamole" and it was awesome! Our waiter came right to our table with the avocados and made it right... More

Food was average, but service was fast and server was very nice. Unfortunately I have an allergy to garlic and it seemed that all of the meats were cooked with some sort of garlic in them. It made ordering difficult.

My family and I visit often for dinner. My son loves their tacos, hubby loves the pick your own mix and match, and I love... More

If you ever visit, Chris or Katy will make sure you are taken care of. Chris has excellent tequila suggestions if you are curious about good sippin' tequila. Awesome happy hour specials nightly.

I like On the Border and unlike some other local Mexican restaurants, they don't mind if you don't like cilantro. I've had the beef enciladas but last night I tried the BARBACOA ENCHILADAS. They were good but a little short on BARBACOA. The rest of the meal was fantastic and the server was quick effeicient and friendly. I do enjoy... More

We had a delicious meal here. Great service. There was no wait to be seated. The margarita I had was yummy. The carnitas fajitas are absolutely delicious. I got the mix two fajitas with carnitas and steak. Never had it with carnitas before and steak is usually my favorite. Well, steak got knocked out of first place by these carnitas.... More

Love this place! Excellent food and fantastic service. This place can get super busy so be prepared. We go at "off" hours and walk right in. Must try their carnita taco's -- absolutely yummy! Get the queso with your chips and salsa -- it's sooooo good. Fajita's are excellent as well. Enchiladas are yummy! Fantastic cocktails. Check out their happy... More

Stayed in hotel nearby. Went to eat on Saturday night. Quick service. Plenty of tortilla chips with moderately spicy salsa. Decent food. Large portions for a reasonable price. Got the large draft beer but the goblet it's served in is a bit unwieldy to easily handle.

This was the second time I've been to this particular restaurant and I was so disappointed. The food was sub par. I ordered the empanadas off of the appetizer menu as my main dish along with a glass of wine. The food was cold, tasteless and greasy and I swear that the wine was watered down. I had to convince...
