I love this place! We live close so it is easy to stop for happy hour and their deals are great for the appetizers. Or for a quick business lunch. Excellent food and fantastic service. 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...

We really enjoyed the customer service here and the food was wonderful as were the drinks. We ate here multiple times while we were in a local hotel. We had options of all kinds of restaurants but the food and customer service here kept us coming back.

This was our usual Mexican restaurant in this area, however, the past two visits have been less than satisfying. For the second time our food was so cold that it had to be sent back. Of course, the server was sincerely apologetic. It was a holiday weekend but the eatery was busy. they have added runners to deliver the food... More
