“Surprisingly Good Chain Mex, We'll Return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Visited for dinner with the family after a movie at the AMC. Seated right way, beverages and orders were all efficient, really friendly waiter. We had a variety of dishes, all were served quickly and hot. Pork was surprisingly good, guac was fresh with decent spices, salsas were flavorful (spicy & mild), fish tacos were excellent, both black beans and refried were decent. Some of us thought the food was slightly spicy, the rest thought it was mild.
We liked the fireplace, and the interior was the standard eclectic mish/mash of colorful yard sale sombreos, maracas, etc.

“Good Place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

My family and I ate here last Saturday. Our food was great! We had the chicken fajitas and they were excellent. The salsa was good too. Our waitress did a great job attending to our table and bringing us what we needed. I would definitely eat here again.

“Terrible service and food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

I travel a lot for work so see a lot of restaurants and On The Border is by far the worst one yet for both service and food. Won't be back!

“Really Good Food, Best Waitress Ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Mexican restaurants are about a dime a dozen in our area, but On the Border was one of the first "nice" ones locally and still the best after many years! Food was fresh and as good as ever, but the high point was Sonia, our waitress. Our family is so tired of listless waitresses that act as if it is all they can possibly do to serve you or ones that feel serving is beneath them and are only attentive at tip time - which never works for me! Sonia was truly a breath of fresh air. She knew the menu, was able to recommend dishes, kept salsa, water, and chips full, made us feel welcomed yet never intruded on personal space. What a treasure she is! So....good, very good food, in fact, but outstanding service! Thank you, Sonia!
