This is an awful restaurant for the area it is in. The customer service was atrocious. They were extremely slow and got almost everything wrong. I was with a larger group of family but the restaurant was not busy at all. Even the 4 member...More

Went here and had a very nice meal that tasted great. The service was very friendly and helpful, just a little slow. That's the only thing that kept me from giving this a 5 star. I would still come back.

The food was the expected On the Border deliciousness, but seriously our waiter couldn't possibly have been less interested in us. Didn't make eye contact even while we were ordering. Didn't check on us often. Kinda threw a wet blanket on our New Years Eve.
