My family makes a weekly visit to On the Border, we love the food and service THAT much! The fajitas are always sizzling and so delcious, especially with their freshly made tortillas. The house margaritas with a sangria swirl are SO refreshing and the price is perfect! All the servers are great; however, our "favorite " is Kristy, who treats... More

Went in for Sunday lunch after church. Service was extremely slow even though it was not busy. Food had obviously been sitting on a warming shelf for too long. Enchilada shells were tough and hard to chew yet filling was luke warm at best. A let down.

My mother and I were roadtripping north and stopped for dinner in Kennesaw. We were both craving Mexican food, but have had a horrible relationship with Chuy's (the first Mexican restaurant we saw in the area). We're glad we stumbled upon On The Border! We'd never seen one outside of an airport, but we were willing to take our chances.... More

We went for an early dinner on a Saturday night, the restaurant was not too busy, overall we were very disappointed with the food and service. With so many choice of restaurants in this part of town, "On the Border", will not be on our list to return.

We do not have On the Border at home. We were driving thru Atlanta and decided to try it. The food was very good, we especially loved the fresh tortilla chips and salsa. Our service was very good and our drinks never sat empty. We have been twice since and have enjoyed it every time.

The night started slow with what looked like a lack of help. Lots of tables needing to be cleaned and we were told it was going to be 15 minute wait. We went to the bar while we waited and it looked like it needed to be bused as well. We ordered the Mango Mahi and the El Patron plate.... More

On the Border was a nice place for us to grab a quick.lunch, for being a weekend it wasn't crowded at all ( that worried me). But we had a very pleasant experience, the place was very clean, prompt service, food was very good.

I went here with a friend for dinner and noticed immediately that the staff was great. I arrived early and was seated but the hostess said she would keep a lookout for my friend and sure enough, she directed him to my table when he arrived. The waitress took our drink orders but also gave some great suggestions on foods... More

On my recent visit, I enjoyed the foods here. Have to say it is on the better side the general feeling is that: good place for family meal. Around 10.00 per person you can have a decent meal. Wednesday chicken fajita special was great for 7.99. Free salsa and chip for starting. I ordered the steak fajita and it is... More

Being right off I75 you could be forgiven for missing this place but take the time and trouble and you won't be disappointed. Food choices are good and the flavors even better. Be sure to try some of the specialty cocktails - the sangria is "to die for"!
