We haven't been sense the remodel, but it's what you'd expect from any on the boarder you've been to. The only thing that's different is I used to live next to one that was a free standing location, not attached to anything else, which was roomy. This location is cramped so it makes it hard on a busy day when... More

We knew ahead of time that On the Border was a chain and weren't expecting super authentic Mexican food, but we love Chuy's and that's a chain and so we thought we'd give it a try. We each had the brisket tacos, and they were yummy! It didn't taste Mexican but oh can't argue with food that still tastes good!... More

We went to On the Border a couple weeks ago and I was very disappointed with my meal. I got their fish tacos and was sorry I had done so. The fish was cut into very small pieces, too heavily breaded, and definitely overdone. To make matters worse, the pico-de-gayo on top was very wet and made the tortilla disintegrate.... More

Was a nice meal with a good server. Got in quickly and it took awhile for the food to get to us but the chips kept coming. The server was friendly and kept the glasses full.

The place was crowed, which is a great sign. We took a beer while we were waiting. Unfortunatly, mostly light beer on tap. The food was good. The fajitas were very good, there is a few good choices of healthy meals. The staff was very nice as well. Next time I want to eat Mexican food, I will be back!

My family loves to meet at OTB any given weekday between 4-7 for Happy Hour. We have some favorites that we always order such as beef empanadas, bean & cheese nachos, and of course, queso! OTB's queso is among the best in town. You can't beat the Happy Hour prices. Sometimes we also order some entrees, too, if we're really... More

Not the worst place. Certainly not the best. Super crowded because this town is small with few decent dining choices. Servers are loud and immature. We waited 40 minutes for appetizers then our meal came 5 minutes later. Hate that!!! Food looked good but taste was sub-par. Didn't want to finish anything. Special occasion and bad food makes for a... More

If you go to the mall, see a movie and want a drink.... Well this is the place to go. Best Margaritas ever, I would recommend getting the pitcher and split it with your friends as well as a Uber back to base. 1 drink is enough and 2 you are feeling Amazing! Food is cool too, not a true... More

We were looking for a light dinner after a walk through the mall. On The Border fit the bill with a plater of mini-tacos. The platter was perfect for two retirees who just needed some Mexican food at a point when the standard faire of steak, chicken, pork, and fish, was getting a little old! Everardo did a nice job...

Normally I prefer more authentic, Mom & Pop-style Mexican cuisine. That said, this particular On the Border has brought my family and me back to ChainMex. Location: This restaurant is conveniently located in the Sikes Center, adjoining the mall. Parking is occasionally tough to find, simply because you are near the movie theater entrance and the mall, proper. Staff: We... More
