“Great Chimichangas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

This was my second visit and it was just a good as the first time. The staff are courteous and helpful. The food portions are more than adequate and I have never been disappointed with the taste. I always enjoy the chips and salsa before the meal. They have a great variety of appetizers and main courses. I believe that the prices are reasonable. If you are in the mood for Tex-Mex, On The Border is a great place to eat.

“Simply the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Great for family outing, the food portion is great and it has a huge varity of dishes. They serve bottomless natchos with homemade salsa. We go there almost every week, it is always our choice. The waiters are so nice and they offered us a regular discount without even asking.

They always have great food and excellent service. The servings are huge and its almost impossible to finish them by yourself. One of my favorite places in jeddah.
