Not bad, pretty typical for On the Border

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... read 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

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.

A travel stop for lunch.... The typical Tex-Mex menu like all the others. Adequate taste and service. Amazingly, they only went smoke-free this month - how backwards is this place???

My boyfriend and I come here every now and then but always at the bar, not at the restaurant. To be honest, I have never tried their food and cannot express an opinion on that. DRINK: I tried their Margaritas, Coronaritas and Mojitos. Margaritas: amazing, make sure you get them on the rocks because it's way better! Coronaritas: very good... More

On the Border in the mall is usually great. Their fajitas and margaritas are standouts. When the food is bad, management is superb at handling the problem. The service is stellar. Definitely one of the best Mexican food places in town.

We enjoyed a late dinner and drinks. Friendly staff, food was good and restaurant was clean. They do allow smoking in the bar area. We didn't want to wait for a table so are in the bar. The smoke didn't bother as much as it would normally, not sure if they have a special ventilation or not.

Smoking is allowed in the bar area, which is separate from the main dining area, but it doesn't matter, you can still smell the smoke and it really kills an appetite. The food was an odd twist on texmex. It was ok, but not very good. Also, you couldn't get the happy hour drink specials unless you sat in the... More

Have been going here for years once a week for lunch. Management is always great and helpful. Need something not on the menu, just ask. Can make it in for lunch on a 1hour timeline.
