“Please!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

This place is a "drive on by"! Having been in Mexico (and Texas) and experienced the fooods there, there is really nothing served at this store that even remotely tastes like you would find in either location. Sorry - Just the facts.

“Best Chips, Hands Down.”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

On the Border has the best chips and salsa anywhere. Bar none. Margaritas aren't too bad either, some of the best.

“A good chain restaurant...”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

So, On the Border is On the Border -- no matter the city. The menu is good -- and consistent. The service at the Athens On the Border was great when I visited this past Saturday. Our order arrived in a timely manner, and, even though the place was packed -- it's a large place -- we didn't feel rushed. The margaritas (12 oz.) are a bit small for the price. It is family friendly place. They had a person walking around making very large balloon hats and animals. Fun for families; a bit annoying, if not. There's a nice size outdoor deck and also a bar with TVs. For a chain restaurant, it works. Lots of parking around all sides of the building.

“Love it! One of my favorite restaurants”
Reviewed December 3, 2010

Great atmosphere and friendly service. Delicious food- always hot and fresh. The best Mexican restaurant I've ever experienced. Feast on chips and salsa before your meal (and I like to get the white queso dip too!)
