“Big Portions”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Generous portions and nice drinks at this chain. It is always a welcome place to refuel after the trip down from Calgary. Excellent and attentive service. A party member's drink choice was not available, so she received an automatic upgrade at no extra cost.

“Wow”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The enchiladas are heavenly. They start you with the best chips and salsa. You will enjoy a nice cold beer after. The washrooms are clean and well stocked. A great place to go as a family or for business.

“Word of advice... You can have a phenomenal meal there, but go "off-menu"”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

If you stick with what you see on the menu, you'll have an "okay" meal... But if you're hungry for steak, go to OTB and order Guacamole Live for a starter, and then order Fajita Steak (probably order two... They're small). Not fajitas, just the steak. Tender, juicy, with seasonings that have just enough kick to make things interesting! I promise if you try it, you'll find yourself craving this meal!

“Really good Mexican food!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Had supper at On The Border Mexican Grill tonight. This is a great place for a good meal. You get chips and salsa when you sit down that are great! (The chips were a bit salty, but they tasted excellent.) I had the all you can eat enchiladas (first round was one of each of their beef, chicken and cheese and onion) and ordered two more of the beef, but that was all I could hold. My wife had a build your own meal which she loved.
For less than $20.00 we had a great meal and will be back again.
