The pancakes tasted as they came from a mediocre mix. Potatoes were rock hard. Waitress oblivious to food remaining on plate.She seemed to be more interested in talking about her wedding this June. Won't go back.

First the good stuff! The guacamole live is assembled at the table and is the best around! $3.00 strawberry margarita is a deal. Our food was good. It was a very busy Saturday night. Under our Corner booth was nasty, full of used napkins and food pieces. The waitress had a bit of an attitude. She never brought a drink... More

The queso is the best anywhere and so are the chips and salsa. I love this place and the service is always great. They do however, need to bring back the chocolate empanadas.

I went into On the Border with quite the appetite. My night began with jalapeno poppers. I was surprise to see that they were deep fried, but I actually enjoyed the flavors more than the usual jalapeno poppers I have eaten. However, the all you can eat enchiladas left a little to be desired (this should have been expected on... More

In town to celebrate my daughter's 23rd birthday. Only a 35 minute wait on a Saturday night in busy Kennesaw, Ga. Our waitress, Elizabeth took exceptional care of us...kept our drinks filled and we didn't have to wait for the check. :)

I don't know why I had higher expectations going here. I haven't been to a chain Mexican restaurant in years. Food was bland an uninspiring. To their due, most of the Mexican and Chinese restaurants in the area have the same type of food.

The restaurant was located close to our hotel which made it very convenient. The food was average, typical Mexican fare. Drink prices were a little high. Drinks had been spilled on the chairs and they were sticky. Service was a little slow.

Service was ok food was a bit greasy...not the best Mexican I've ever had but then again it is a chain restaurant. The place just didn't have the atmosphere we were looking for just a bit disappointing. I may come back but it will be a year or so before I do.
