“Good Food n Crisp Mexican Beer!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

If you are a beer lover, ask for a dark Mexican beer to go along with the delicious food. Good ambience, but at times they shut off one part of the restaurant and restrict service in a crowded area - perhaps they are thinly staffed. A must visit if you like Mexican cuisine.

“Great chips and salas”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Have enjoyed On the Border for years. They have good food, enjoyed the cheese enchiladas. The chips and salsa are some of the best. The service was average.

“My favorite Mexican restaurant in Milpitas”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

On the border has to be absolutely my most favorite Mexican restaurant in Milpitas. I have been here at least once each time I visit and absolutely recommend it as a great place to unwind and relax over a few drinks and some great food. Good ambience, music, awesome margaritas and a good spread - even for a vegetarian like me!

“Downhill”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We have not been to On The Boarder for several months. We were very shocked at how it has gone downhill since our last visit. The chips were salt less and stale. The guacamole live was favor less. It took forever for our fajita to come out. The shrimp was under cooked, and the pulled pork was over cooked. The tortillas were much smaller, thick and undercooked. We had missed being there but I doubt that we will go back. It was so sad. The music was so loud and the room was ice cold. Not a good experience at all
