Good family meal, friendly server

This was the first time my family and I had tried an "On the Border". We were visiting Atlanta and this restaurant was near our hotel. We thought it might have some options for my vegetarian daughter. When our fantastic server Ariel heard my daughter was vegetarian, she brought us a special... read more

This location is almost always busy but I have rarely waited to be seated. Food comes really fast. Chips and salsa are better than most casual chains. They are known for making guacamole table-side and it is excellent. Meats include mahi, brisket, pork, chicken, steak, and ground beef.

I stopped here twice over the recent holiday weekend. The Green Chile Carnitas Burrito was excellent, although no as spicy as the ones in NeW Mexico. Same for the New Mexico combo. A pretty good Chile Relleno, tasty, but mild. But, what I liked the most were the sopapillas. Puff pastry like in Santa Fe. Tear off a corner and... More

Excellent service, meals, great value. Perhaps the best 'Mexican' style restaurant we have eaten at.

Yeah, I had to get the Boderito again. Cooked just like a chain should. Over stuffed, chips were great, salsa was great. Quick service, again.

We have stopped at this location so many times while traveling on vacation, shopping or attending concerts in Atlanta. We have been stopping at this location for several years now. The service has been great every time. I can't say that about many places. The food has always been good. They try to change up the menu items occasionally. We... More

Very quick service and we watched Michigan State NCAA basketball there. We had a big group and it was no problem. I had the three sauce fajitas. Very good.

Loved this restaurant, very popular on weekend so expect the typical wait for this area. The jalapeno poppers are excellent and the guacamole salad is great. Good service, fair price and great food, this one will get more of my money in future.

We were at Town center Mall shopping all afternoon. We decided to eat dinner at this restaurant before we go back home. The parking was easy. We were seated quickly and our server was very efficient. We had The ultimate fajitas and they were delicious. We will visit again soon.

I usually eat at the restaurant in another area of town, but I was shopping and thought I would grab a bite around 2 pm. I was greeted pleasantly. I was seated promptly. My order was taken quickly. I received my food promptly, and it wasn't very good. First, the black beans were burned and had to be replaced. The... More
