Great food, Great drinks

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... read more

We go to this place often and it is always good. Great bar, great margaritas, great chips and salsa. They give you a lot of food and the prices are great. A good consistant restaurant

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.

I stopped here with a friend last Friday for lunch. It's fairly close to my house, and I've eaten here many times. However, I haven't been here for probably close to a year. Overall, I was quite disappointed. However, there were a few upsides. The drinks were good and priced fairly. The salsa was good, but the chips were exceptionally... More
