We had a group of about 20 people. They did a great job and the food was good. the order by number worked out well. The old Mexican decor was wonderful.

The food was good, we went there for all you can eat enchiladas. We hadn't been there in a while. Our waitress was so attentive and upbeat and even the manager was working, due to that we'll be going back.

We have eaten here about one a month. They always have lots of waiter and staff turnover, but seem to try their best. Problems have been always handled with satisfaction. This is a busy place, but they do a decent job in my opinion. They have great specials and coupons too!

I am being encouraged to write this review. A vendor was treating me to lunch and "On the Border" was close. The food is pretty good most of the time. After getting our drinks, chips and salsa, the waitress gave us a few minutes to gather our thoughts on food and took our order. We were discussing something like trucks... More

My husband and I went for the advertised unlimited taco special. We hadn't been here in a long time, as we have other Mexican restaurants we favor. We waited for a while for someone to take our drink order. We ordered our food upon arrival of the drinks. We both ordered the taco special. You could choose between chicken, pork,... More

We chose this location primarily because of its proximity to our hotel and because we had a giftcard it would accept. We were seated fairly quickly and got a basket of fresh chips and salsa. My friend and I ordered a margarita to share (with the help of the waitress). As we waited for our entrees, we were approached by... More

My wife and I arrived on Saturday June 29th around 7:20 pm. We stood alone at the entrance to be seated for about 5 minutes when my wife said "lets look at the menu and decide so we will save time when we are seated". Another 5 minutes past when a lady finally ask if we had been waited on,... More

There is a wide variety of menu items, and the margaritas are fabulous, especially the Perfect Patron. This is one of my favorite restaurants for Mexican food.
