If you are in the mood for good mexican fare. On The Border is a good option! The tacos and enchiladas are very good. Not very spicy or overly unique but good and filling. The service is excellent and makes the dining experience a B+...More

Our second time to this location, and had great service from Shannon V. She was awesome, very attentive and made sure she told the kitchen to split our order on different plates. Small things but the details make the difference! Food has been consistently good...More

Slooooow service. Bland, flavorless corporate-inspired ersatz Mexican food, loud pop music, alcohol-free margaritas, surly manager. We used to like this place but it’s ruined now.

The food was delicious and our waiter was fantastic. I had 2 chicken enchiladas with a white cream sauce and family style rice and refried beans. The waiter priced my meal selection at a special price they had going as a promotion that saved me...More

Does this place have a manager? That was our question to each other when leaving. Four of us were together and stopped at this restaurant. We really like Mexican food. Obviously that had to be the case since this was our third day in a...More

Food and service was good. The music was extremely loud. Couldn't carry on a conversation. Sever said the manager liked it loud. So now the manager can dine at his/her restaurant and we won't be back to On The Border.
