Chips always fresh! And love the cheese and salsa too. Sign up for the club and get free offers:),the combo meals are enough food for two people ( pick 4).

“Very good food, friendly service, great sopapillas.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service here. We really like fajitas and here you get a choice of sauces, sides and how it is prepared. A nice touch. The fajitas (we ordered a pulled pork and one shrimp) tasted fresh, nicely spiced and had plenty of pork and shrimp. All sides were very good as well.

The additional guacamole was only $1 and good, but a it was a very tiny portion.

We were there during a margarita special, so we had very good margaritas for only $3 each.

We shared the sopapillas for dessert and they were great. We travel a lot and far too many restaurants try to pass off pita chips or worse as sopapillas. Here they were true puffy sopapillas served with cinnamon and both honey and chocolate dipping sauces.

Our waitress was really friendly and efficient. Prices were pretty cheap for the quality of the food and the large portions.

A nice place to stop.

“Great place, great food, great server -Crystal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We have always been Don Pablo's patrons but were hungry and doing errands and this was close. Well I can tell you we will be back. The food was fabulous. We were really pleased and our server, Crystal was on top of everything. Never had to ask for a thing. She was reading our minds and made everything so fun. Thank you On the Border for the experience and for hiring Crystal!

“Some of the best waitstaff/management I've ever encountered.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

We had a large group and we'd called ahead. When we got there they couldn't seat is immediately, because of some other lingering large parties. We weren't really upset but nevertheless the staff was very apologetic. As soon as they were able to seat us they put down chips and salsa and took care of drinks. Then they brought us a large appetizer on the house because of the wait (which was only 25 minutes, not really bad for a Saturday night with a large group.). On top of that the staff was friendly and attentive. Food was great. Overall great experience and would definitely come again. If any complaints the decor could use a little facelift and the floor was kinda dirty. No problems recommending this place to anyone.
