“Americanized salty "Mexican"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Been there twice and don't think I'll ever go back. Portions are salty as heck. Not sure if they actually call this Mexican food because it sure is not. They serve a good Margarita though and have good beer selection. Food lacks authenticity and flavor, not salt!

“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We ate a late lunch at the restaurant. My husband said his meal of enchiladas was delicious. I had the enchiladas and chile relleno's and it was very good. The atmosphere was casual and nice. Prices were fair for lunch, they had specials. We would go back again.

“great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

great fresh food. All prepared to order. Even the chips and taco shells were made right there. The bartenders were friendly but a little slow on service. they seemed to be understaffed

“Mexican food for american taste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went to On the Border Mexican Grill with friends. The night began with Margaritas in large glasses to start. The chips and salsa were a nice touch and got you in the mood for mexican night. The sauces were good but not real hot and chips were fresh and crunchy tasted like that probably make them there. The orders we placed were chicken fajitas, nice order of chicken brest on the grill with lettuce, tomatoe, sour cream with lots of jaleaponos to boot. The other order was trio of meat & chili relleano, shrimp fajitas & the chicken con queso. All of the servings were great portions with either a side of rice and refried beans or black beans we chose the black beans. The food was average and if you wanted more of a tex mex feel with american style taste. I thought the service was good and the food prices were average for this type of chain restaurant trying to appeal to the more common mainstream crowd. There are items on the menu for all palates and prices were reasonable for the presentation and portion.

“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We arrived very late at night, just before closing. The staff was very friendly and even though it was late, we were served with smiles and very good food.
