Good food and service

Very good Mexican food. Service was outstanding. Great drinks and they give endless chips and salsa. Had very good dinner specials. Family friendly and a great night out! Staff was very accommodating and helpful!

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

had a fantastic first time experience here. Waitress, Lynn was great, friendly and courteous. Offered to answer any questions about the menu, she was very attentive. Food was awesome. Empanadas for appetizer, delicious! Home made chips were so yummy. For our main dishes we had Enchiladas, tacos, flautas and refried beans, it was all terrific. I will definitely be back... More

We eat here on Sundays when we're out and about and get home later. The manager is always attentive and the service from the staff is excellent. The food is fresh and cooked perfectly. Great Mexican place, try it soon....

They really do it right at On The Border. The food is great, the drinks are great and the service is always top notch. We really enjoy eating here. The chips are warm and homemade, the salsa is nice and spicy. All the food items are so good and even though the server was on his very first night, he... More

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.
