We have been to On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina about 3 times because it is close to our home. The food is fairly well presented, the taste is good, but I think they charge too much.

The food is good and it comes out pretty quickly. But don't order any food that is deep fried in oil like the sopapillas. They don't change the oil and use it throughout the day so at dinner, the food tastes like chemicals. But other than that the place is good. We come here often, but not to this exact... More

We stayed next door in the Best Western Premier and went here for dinner the 1st night , it was close, easy and the food was good- it was a little noisy but we needed to unwind from our trip in so it didn't bother us. Overall it was good foe the 4 of us.

A good restaurant but very noisy, when you are on a business trip sometimes you just want to sit back and unwind.

This restaurant was in walking distance from our our hotel, The Best Western Premier Crown Chase Inn and Suites. The margaritas were wonderful! Not crazy about the tortilla chips...they looked like they were made from whole corn tortillas and just halved. The fried avocado and enchilada was great.

Great range of authentic Mexican food and I loved how my fajita was served on a sizzling platter. The service was very slow and it was not a busy night. It took over 10 minutes to bring change back to the table I was sharing with 2 friends. The location is excellent- next door to a number of hotels. The... More

We did have a new server - she was slow, got a few things wrong and forgot some items. The food was okay, not great. I would recommend the Skinny Margarita's!

After spending many many nights in the bar, I have made a few friends and they make me feel very welcomed. The queso with brisket is to die for. Thanks Andrew and Joey.

We had a large group come in about 9 PM after a sporting event. We all arrived within 15 minutes of one another, but the server seemed completely overwhelmed and unhappy with such a large table with split tickets. Everyone in our group was friendly and I know they are all good tippers and patient when we all go to... More
