“Go for the Fries”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

They have avocado fries, which will make you think you're in heaven. Try, if you don't get anything else.

“Finally! Mexican Food on Long Island”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Chips and Salsa right when you get there! Several choices on margaritas! Fajitas and Enchiladas Suiza perfect! I loved it. The service was a little slow but I'm not sure that wasn't intentional to show a laid back atmosphere. The salsa has a definite kick to it. Queso was just velveeta with rotel it seemed - but hey, at least they didn't bring us a basket of rolls like the other major Mexican chain on Long Island. So glad OTB is here - we'll be regulars.

“Don't miss the guacamole live made at your table!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

So glad they open this restaurant in Suffolk I used to hear here often when I lived in south Florida and this is a welcome addition to the landscaping
Make sure to order guacamole live made fresh at your table!

“Reasonable dinner out”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have gone to the On the Border in Hickville and have always loved it, so when we found out they opened one closer to us we were so happy. I should say the inside atmosphere is not as nice as the Hickville location. We have been twice since it has opened. The first time, as you would expect, people were just learning so the food and service was just ok. Then the second time we went it was much better. It is a reasonably priced nite out for a family of five, and we will be back.
