My street tacos were juicy and hot. Side of rice and sids of beans comes out in large tubs. Drinks were good and not too pricy. Service was good for a Saturday night crowd. Southwest chicken tacos for very big and tasty.

This particular On The Boarder was very disappointing, nothing had flavor, rice was bland, enchilada sauce was blah, the only thing good was the chips and salsa. I normally really love OTB but this one was not on par...

Super slow inattentive service. Mediocore food that took over 25 mins for a burrito and two fish tacos. So many alternatives, choose somewhere else.

We had dinner here recently. The service was good. The food at best is standard On the Border Mexican Cuisine. Not bad. But nothing to get excited about.
