We had a small Birthday party at our home and On the Border supplied everything from delivery, plates to food and set it up. Food was great!!! and we didn't have to do any cooking.

We went here for Mother's Day lunch. The food was ok and the service was unimpressive. The worst part was the nasty sticky table. These need to be deep cleaned... my napkin stuck to the table. It was gross.

We stop in at On The Border rather infrequently but on our latest visit, unlike in the past, we were quite disappointed. The place was very busy & noisy and service was slow. Our server was quite harried but tried to please. Food was very mediocre.

We have gone to this restaurant since it has opened and have had great service and food as well as really crappy service and not so good food. Not consistent at all. This is a training restaurant so that might be why there is not consistency. Ok for a family get together or to hang out at the bar with... More

Great happy hour deals on margaritas. Good food and attentive staff. Come here often and staff will make an effort to remember your favorites!

We stopped in for dinner. The restaurant is very clean and the service was extremely attentive. The food was OK -- not bad, not great -- your basic generic Tex Mex fare. We will return to try the rest of the menu while we continue on our quest to find authentic Mexican food in Denver.

Nice place. Great atmosphere. But the food was poor. My poblano pepper in my chili relleno was cold and raw. The beans as well as the rice were hard and unpalatable. Good ingredients, poor preparation. Not on my list of places I will return to.

I am happy to say that this restaurant had it all. GREAT service, GREAT food, GREAT ambiance and a GREAT location. The service: Our server was so quick. We barely sat down and she was asking what we wanted to drink. She brought fresh chips and salsa and after hearing we had never been to one of the franchises before,... More

I have been to this On the Boarder before, but discovered the Firecracker jalapenos Poppers on the menu. Wow were they good! They are not as hot as I thought they might, and I love hot spiced food. You get 6 large poppers, well worth the money.
