“Great Value”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

By far the best chips in the business. Food is good, appetizers are a great deal. Service is very good. I like to go mid afternoon and get the appetizers for half off. Great value!

“Always a favorite!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Have always had a good hot flavorful meal on each visit. The warm chips and fresh salsa are addictive. Many good choices to switch it up and cocktails are a good size and tasty.
Portions are filling, service is great and even though it is quite far from home, it is worth the drive when I need to have my Mexican Food Fix! Took my family from out of state on my last visit and they were very pleased as well. Affordable and filling........

“Good chain, but not authentic”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

If you are looking for a good Mexican chain, On the Border is hard to beat. I've been to multiple locations and had good experiences across the board. However, On the Boarder has clearly been "American-ized" and not very authentic Mexican. The chips and salsa are just too addictive, which is actually a reason we stay away at times. They are both fresh and not overly salty.

The menu items provide good value, and the kids menu is hard to beat at any chain. The cost is about the same, but they get a complete meal (including ice cream).

The acoustics are poor because of all the solid surfaces, but the interior space is well decorated and enjoyable to look at.

On the Border is a safe pick for Mexican, you won't be disappointed.
