“Good for a change!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Hadn't been to On the Border in awhile and was pleasantly surprised. I new menu offered a nice change. Of course it was very busy but we were fortunate to get a seat in the bar and the food,drink and service were good. I noticed the crowd at the door waited awhile for a table but it was Friday nite in Midland, TX!! What do you expect. :-) BTW the picture depicted on the site is incorrect. I reported it.

“Take your business elsewhere”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Placed an order at a little after 11a..."ready in 15-20 minutes". Show up 30 minutes later. Wait over 40 minutes (when the place wasn't busy) only to have to get on-duty manager involved. Walked out with food with no bill but got some BS excuse about why the SNAFU. Not an isolated occurance at this place with take out...you have to check your order before you leave since there's a high liklihood that it'll be wrong.

Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in the door until our dinner was over! Service was great, food was wonderful, drinks were outstanding. Whether you are passing through or visiting Midland it is worth it to eat at this restaurant!

“Really nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The staff here is awesome. They're quick and prompt. I've only had one "bad" experience here and it was with some undercooked food, but they fixed it immediately and gave us a free appetizer for our next visit. Great place.
