Salsa!

Its a chain so with that said, its one of the best in our area. The meals are typical Mexican. Bensalem's location is clean and friendly! The complimentary chips and salsa are darn TASTY! Good portions for a bargain price. We like "on the Border"!

We've eaten here before, this trip, I was alone. Not bad at all. I have decided I like this place more than another Mexican Restaurant in nearby Southampton, PA. My wife loves the Fajitas here, at least the meat is marinated, hse can't have citrus, so lemon and lime accents are out, this restaurant is always cognisant of that when... More

Kid friendly, good food. They like to put refried beans on everything. So, even if you order something and ask twice to make sure the beans are not added, plan on sending your plate back before the server presents it. Other complaint is that theh do not dust or clean. Ever. Tables are always wiped with a damp old musty... More

I've been there about once a month since it opened about ten years ago. Always great food, always good service. Convenient dedicated takeout section. The prices are more than reasonable, and can be better if you join the club and eat on weekdays. Lots of daily specials and they sometimes have all you can eat tacos or enchiladas for $10.... More

I don't like On the Border. I miss Chi Chi's where the food was tasty and generous. OTB is cheap with portions and the food is just bland. Very price for this type of food, too. Best thing they offer are the warm chips to start you out.
