We enjoyed the shrimp fajitas, chicken fajitas and fish tacos with black beans. The service was perfect. Food delivered quickly and hot. Shrimp were juicy, big and accompanied by plenty of veggies. The OTB Margaritas packed a punch! Happy Hour specials Monday-Thursday only.

Dinners at On the Border always begin with chips and salsa, but we were not offered the option of the "spicier" sauce. Cocktails (Borderita Rocks Rita and Wild Berry Swirl Rita) and the Dos Equis Lager were good and thirst quenching. My Queso Chicken was...More

Tons of places to eat along Hwy 36 and I chose the saltiest! Our table had 11 people, no wait which was great! Lots of free chips and salsa, decent service, but the food was barely adequate. Everyone had food leftover, and nobody wanted to-go...More
