Hostess dropped one of our setups on the floor picked it up and handed it to my daughter. I don't think so, so a new set up was requested. My menu on the inside was splattered with salsa so that had to be changed also. Three entrees ordered and one came out not what was ordered so that was... read more

A wonderful place to eat. The food was excellent and the service was great! A large open area place to dine and still very comfortable for our family to sit and visit. I would eat here again.

Went for dinner several times, ALWAYS good consistent service and wonderful food. I recommend that you ask for the Bald Guy to serve you, he's great and we like him much. They have Guacamole Live, made right at the table and it's terrific! Generous portions and very generous drinks, had a blast!

We were here for one of mi kids' 21st birthday, the kid was anxious to have a first drink, or as the server put it "first "legal" drink". I'm from Mexico so I usually don't order "traditional" mexican food; in this instance I was intrigued by the enchiladas, so I order the "La Bandera" enchiladas and was pleasantly surprised. They...

Had family in town and I always go to on the border. This time service was pretty bad with no attempts to apologize or say anything. Took 20 mins to get drinks, and my food was wrong. My waiter told me, when I asked him what happened "there's no way for me to know they changed the menu". My family... More

The food was average On The Border fare. We had a big party and so I know service can be challenging for that. They took care of us, not quite as attentively as I would have liked but nevertheless everyone got fed and had drinks served to them. Food was typical On The Border, nothing spectacular but a decent meal.

If you don't mind waiting on yourself then you might enjoy the food. First timers will be surprised at having to "do it yourself". Food was acceptable but nothing special.

They have great food and are blocked by the highway most of the time. But they are a must visit for anyone who wants good mexican food at an affordable price. They give you a survey at the bottom of your reciept to get a free cup of queso. Atmosphere and look provide you with a comfortable dining experience. They... More

Went for happy hour and were waited on by Kristen. We ordered two margaritas one mango and one regular. They were very good and reasonably priced. I tried the carnita taco because it was billed as having Hatch chiles in it. I could not taste the chiles or the pork, so for me it was a bust at the three... More
