“Just what we were looking for...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We normally try not to eat at chains on vacation, as we prefer "local color" places, but since we don't have an "On the Border", we didn't feel as guilty. Overall, we enjoyed OTB -- staff was very friendly, kids meals were good and worth the price, and the fajitias were great.

“too spicy!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Looks like they would have a mild, medium and a hot for folks like me with sensitive taste buds! the best thing there is the Avacado dip that is made right at your table.

“Good food and Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

My sister and I meet at On the Boarder quite often. We love the 1/2 price appetizers during happy hour ~ served only in the bar area!!! Salsa and chips are delicious. Very good food and service! Atmosphere is perfect!

“Over priced food and horrible wait staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012 via mobile

If you want to over pay for Taco Bell quality food and horrible service, then you should definitely visit this place. I live in the area and have eaten here a handful of times with the same outcome each time. The waitstaff is horrible. I have never received good service. They're never very friendly and always slow to refill drinks. The food has never been very impressive either, especially for the price. If you're looking for good food and friendly service, try one of Texarkana's other Mexican restaurants.
