This one brought us back to Chain Mex

Normally I prefer more authentic, Mom & Pop-style Mexican cuisine. That said, this particular On the Border has brought my family and me back to ChainMex. Location: This restaurant is conveniently located in the Sikes Center, adjoining the mall. Parking is occasionally tough to find, simply... read more

We were looking for a light dinner after a walk through the mall. On The Border fit the bill with a plater of mini-tacos. The platter was perfect for two retirees who just needed some Mexican food at a point when the standard faire of steak, chicken, pork, and fish, was getting a little old! Everardo did a nice job...

Ate dinner here recently. Very loud and crowded. Tables packed in tightly. Got splattered by sizzling fajitas carried by server as he passed table. Oil-stained my clothes. Our server was friendly, but got order wrong. Enjoyed the margaritas, big and tasty. Food was forgettable and not much for the vegetarians in our party. One vegan in our party had chips... More

We always spend our first night in Wichita Falls, on our annual trip to Colorado and eat at On The Border. It has become a ritual and we are never disappointed. The food is always fresh and tasty, the beverages are cold and the service is excellent.

I have to say the service here was awesome! Our waiter was very funny and helpful. Never went a minute without a drink or chips and dip. The food was pretty good and great for the price. Will definitely be back next time were at the Sikes Senter.

Been here many times for lunch and dinner. Great family place. The food is great and the service is good and fast. We love the chips in this hot sauce they give you in the beginning of the meal. The careful not to eat too much or you won't be hungry anymore. We love the border sampler to start out.... More

We all ordered something totally different with various change requests. 'Heather' got everything right and all was just as requested and very good. Probably was the best meal ever at this restaurant. Loved it.

We sat at the bar ... Easy right? Not only did we wait 10 minutes to have a drink order taken we waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive and it was cold. The manager was nice enough to take it back and remove it from our bill. But we were not the only one that had this problem... More

This is chain Mexican food. Ok fajitas but a little stingy with the sides. Good tortillas. Good chips. Good waiter. The place is not laid out right. Very congested and crowded. Wait staff can't get out of each other's way. We were staying overnight on a trip and it was close by. I might be a little more adventurous next... More

The food is wonderful here. My husband, who is from New Mexico, is very hard to please when it comes to Mexican food. He loved it! The guacamole is a must; Chips aren't greasy; and tacos Ahhhh-mazing.
