“BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN THE MIDWEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed. My favorite is the Chimichanga. Their salsa is excellent, chips are thin and crispy, and queso is outstanding! Service is always top notch! I highly recommend On the Border.

“all ways a good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On the Border is all ways a good choice if you are looking for consistent mexican food. Chips and salsa is very good as well as the queso. entree's are reasonably priced and portions are good size. Good place to bring the family.

“Watch out for bones”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We ordered 2 combo meals to go. I almost choked on a chicken bone in my enchilada. After looking more carefully we found 4 bones in our meals. When we called about the experience , we were told they had a whole month of shipments of items with bones in them . They comped us so we could come back and try again. We returned to the restaurant and had a second terrible experience.

The waiter forgot to bring out the appetizer and brought out the wrong order for my boyfriend. Our food was cold. The only thing that was good were the drinks. Service stunk.
