Tasty but you can tell they are milking your wallet.

Times must be tough at OTB. All the food was tasty, but the portion size was extremely disappointing. I had the Not So Ultimate Fajitas. The dish was delicious, but the portion was laughable to the point I actually complained to the manager who tried to make it right with an a little extra meat... read more

We have been to this location many times and have had relatively good experiences. Today, however, we were disappointed -- mostly in the service. The food was not bad. Average for On The Border. Our server seemed distracted though. We asked for lemons for our water twice and never received any. Every time he did stop by our table it... More

After many visits to On the Border in a few different states and previously reviewing this as one we return to each time we travel to or through Woodbridge our hearts were broken. We arrived and were seated and the waitress had someone in training. never an issue for my wife and I and understand fully. Our orders were taken... More

I just finished eating lunch at On The Border in Lake Ridge, VA a short time ago, and I was impressed enough to write this review right away. The manager seated me and said they had the best chips and salsa around! He was right, and I know my chips and salsas! This is the best salsa I have had... More

We started out with a mumbling server. Mark seemed annoyed that he had to repeat himself. We got okay service but with an attitude that he was a machine and would service us only as much as he needed to. The other annoying thing he did was to keep walking back and forth beside our booth, just aimlessly sauntering by... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions for both dine in and carry out. The food has always been delicious and I have never had a complaint. I stopped in on New Years Eve for a carryout order and I ordered a bowl of their Queso. The waitress told me that their Manager no longer provides chips with the... More

The drinks I had and the food my friends had was great. They got endless enchiladas and the quesadilla. I would gladly go again. The music on the outside was super loud.... and kind of annoying, but the music inside was not that loud and I could carry on a conversation and not go deaf. Wait staff was friendly and... More

As normal we ate here our first night. We miss our visits in Illinois and this eatery has not made it near Virginia Beach so we try to go each time we visit. Tried the all you can eat hard or soft tacos and added a cheese queso dip to the regular chips and salsa order. Food was as good... More
