DeAngelo was the best server! We ate The Border Sampler; it was awesome. Food was tasty and hot. Don’t forget to order cheese dip.

The waitress forgot my soda, which is a major problem for me. Chicken in the fajitas was tasteless but the black beans and the salsa were good.

We enjoyed On the Boarder. Nice atmosphere and clean. Our server was excellent. All food was temperature appropriate. Chips were fresh and salsa was great. My fajitas were very good. Would certainly recommend this restaurant. Very clean spacious restroom with plenty of room for wheelchair.

If you have eaten at On The Border before any where else then you know it will be equally as well in Jonesboro. It is a great restaurant with great wait staff and cooks. Always good.

Me and my husband love to eat here. The staff is always up beat, drinks are always good, nice selection of food. It is a bit pricey, but they definitely give you a plate full.

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
