This particular On the Border seems to be a little bit more customer service-oriented than a few of the others however the food seems to be consistent at each location. Their chips are always fresh and the salsa is absolutely divine. Shea took care of me and she was a very attentive to making sure my food was prepared correctly... More

One the Border specializes in your typical Tex-Mex and Americanized Mexican food. It is usually good...not great...but fast and convenient.

The food and the service was excellent. Not to mention the margaritas. Delicious. The chips are light and salsa just the right amount of spice. Very fresh. I would definitely recommend this place

We came for dinner on a week night, and it wasn't very crowded. We had to wait by the door for a few minutes before anyone came to seat us. A few servers had made eye contact with us, but still no one came. After being seated it took us another few minutes to see a waitress. The food was... More

This is your typical American Tex-Mex. The staff was nice, we had to sit in the bar area(too cold outside). The food was okay, nothing to write home about. The place could have been cleaner.

If you've never had On the Border's fish tacos, you should. It sounds weird, I know. Fish and tacos sound like two different meals. But they're great, and On the Border has nailed the recipe. Great paired with their House Margarita.

A work colleague and I went to eat here during our lunch break from our meeting at about 11:15 am on a Wednesday. They had just opened and only had about 2-3 tables in the restaurant. We waited at the front door for about 5 minutes for someone to seat us. The servers (who were at tables with guests) did... More

the food was pretty standard, nothing out of the ordinary or special. I could see that it would be a fun place for a group at happy hour or a birthday celebration.

We went there on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. We went in there around 2 PM so they were not very busy. We went in - and even though half the restaurant was empty, it took the hostess about 5 minutes to get us a table. The table next to ours was a big party of 6 or 7 -... More
