The bar staff here is great, the go out of their way to provide the customer service so many places lack today. The usual chips and salsa, were good, i prefer the "hot/caliente" style which they usually have, so pretty good. Wish they would go over the drink specials a little more but bar staff doing well. The food seems to have changes somewhat from when I have visited in the past at a different location up north in Loveland. The chimis are smaller here and the green chili "sauce" as they now call it seemed pretty tame, and lacking in the usual pork. So that may just be management between the two or the sign of the times in cutting portions. go figure.

Service was quick, efficient, and when a special order was wrong, they fixed it quickly.

Food was hot and good. Not the quality you get at a local place, but good for a chain, and price was decent.

We go to this restaurant some what regularly (once or twice a year) but hadn't been in a while. Looks like they updated the decor and their menu. SOme reasonably healthy but still yummy looking things on the menu. The chicken fajitas we had were very tasty. We also had the quesso and it tasted a little burned.

The guacamole salad was fabulous which is a big draw but everything else was just okay. The food was not hot, just warm. I have eaten at much better "On the Border" restaurants.

On a Saturday afternoon before Cinco de Mayo, I expect a Mexican restaurant to have attentive staff! several different staff looked directly at us, yet none summoned a hostess. Just as we were about to leave one arrived and was rude. Two strikes should've told us to leave. Took forever to get food, which was hot and tasty. Maybe the mgr was on vacation and will return soon. I won't go back.
