I like On the Border restaurants overall - while not exactly authentic, they do have great Mexican food (but greasy, very greasy!). I love their queso dip and chimichangas. Recently though I found myself at this location, and sat down to a table to notice my appetizer plate and my fork both had caked-on food on them. The waiter promptly took the plate away when he saw it, but I had to ask for another fork. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, but nothing turns me off to a restaurant more than finding evidence of uncleanliness - someone set the table with dirty items and didn't even notice. That's worrisome. Maybe try a different location, although it's not exactly a 5-star restaurant no matter where you go.
