Our family had been loyal customers of this restaurant since it first opened in Kennesaw. It used to be the one place we could all agree on to have lunch or dinner. Over the past few years we have seen a steady decline. The food has gotten more and more spicy and the service and cleanliness have gone down hill.... More

We eat at On The Border all the time at home. This place is horrible. We never got a server the whole time we were there (manager or hostess took our order) . Had to flag someone down for drink refills after 30 minutes of no one checking on us. Someone that worked there brought her kids up with her... More

Went there to eat last night. Had the guacamole live from the appetizer menu, if you get it "live", you get about 30% more product. Not a bad place to eat. Service was slower then I expected but we eventually got our food.

What happened to this place? They used to have above average Mexican food but now I would have to say it is below average. I have been twice for lunch recently, have gotten a new waitress both times who has gotten our order wrong. The food was just ok last time, but it was bad today. I didn't even eat... More

I've been to other On The Border restaurants out of town and enjoyed it. Not this one. The service is very good but the food was just mediocre at best. The food wasn't really hot to start. We both had tacos. Both were on the dry side and kind of tasteless. The chips, salsa, and guacamole at the beginning were... More

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. :)
