On The Border Mexican Grill
Ranked #24 of 146 Restaurants in Southaven
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We've been to Southaven many times and this was the first time we tried On The Border Mexican Grill. The place was clean and very busy. We were greeted by a friendly smiling hostess and seated quickly. Our waitress said she would be right with us and before she went 6ft the Manager took our drink orders. We had excellent fast service, the food was very good and Margarita's were excellent (2 for 1) Happy Hour. We will be back the next time we are in the area.

This place looks great from the outside! We couldn't wait to try it, but we were disappointed with the food & service.
- chips were really greasy. We could bend them w/out breaking them!
- appetizer order was deep fried jalapeño poppers. The middle was full of uncooked flour. The waitress noticed these before we said anything & she commented "eww, this is odd" & took the plate back. Whenever offered to bring us more or take them off our ticket.
- salad tasted like it had been rinsed in a cleaning product.
Servers acted like they were stoned. The gal who brought our chips said she didn't know how she was doing b/c she just started her shift & didn't know what was going on yet. Another guy was wiping a table & pushed a stack of napkins on another booth & looked at them & shrugged & kept wiping. After a while it just become comical!
Not the best experience & we wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone we know.

When we arrived for dinner we had a 25 minute wait for non-smoking, not a problem. When we were seated, it took a good 5 minutes for a waitress to come take our drink order but once we had the drinks the service was good. Now, about the food, don't waste your time. We had the combo nachos for an appetizer, they were just o.k., kind of bland. The main course, I choose the Ultimate Fajitas ( 4 different meats), that was absolutely the worst fajitas I have ever had in my life and I am a fajita lover. Stay away from the fajitas, especially the pork. The chips were thick and hard and the salsa had too much chili powder ( I'm guessing that's what it was) in it.

We went there at about 9PM, very tired and hungry. The restaurant was very busy for that late and there was no hostess. Once we were finally seated by a waitress, the manager came up and took our drink order. After that our waiter must have caught up with his other tables because we had perfect service. He was prompt and attentive but not invasive. The food was great--the dessert was WONDERFUL. Our waiter refilled drinks before needed, brought our check promptly, and took care of if quickly. We drive through Southaven once or twice a year for the last 25 years and have never stopped at this OTB before. Now we've decided we have to do that on a regular basis each year!
