My favorite restaurant! Food is always hot and delicious. Wait staff are always very attentive. Even though I love spicy food, I don't care for hot salsa...no problemo...just ask for mild. Soooo good! Just love the ambiance here!

If you like 'Americanized Mexican' then by all means go. I have to admit I went to On The Boarder begrudgingly. I lived in Tucson for 3 years and know good Mexican food - this isn't it. It is no more Mexican than Olive Garden...More

I don't know where to start. Service was slow. They were obviously understaffed. Food was mediocre at best. Guacamole was better once we doctored it up ourselves with more lime and salt. Kids never got the sundaes included in their kids meals (we were so...More

I made an on line order for a meal, pick 3 items. It wasn't warm when picked up. It seemed as if it was frozen food heated up. It was kind of hard in the middle like when you have microwaved something too long. I...More

I had been here a few years ago and don't know what happened. I assume there has been a management change. The menu improved and the food was good, but served poorly. Our server was friendly, but just not well trained. For example, of our...More

Hadn't been here for a couple of years and it was not nearly as good as I remembered. Picked the "ultimate fajitas" dish for the variety of fillings - supposed to be steak, chicken, shrimp and carnitas (sp? - pulled pork), and while all those...More
