I usually meet my daughter there for lunch during the week. Great lunch specials, Great hot fresh chips. You can usually get a table fast.

This restaurant is part of a national chain of Mexican restaurants, and it's one of the best. (I've been to four other locations.) The staff seems to turn over frequently, and that usually means a surly staff, but we've always found them friendly and efficient. The food is always good, and occasionally outstanding. They have daily and monthly specials, and... More

Right now, if you've signed up via their app or Facebook etc, you can enjoy "Endless Enchiladas" all November long for $9.99 per person---not just on Mondays! :) They have specials often, & we enjoy the festive atmosphere & the good service. A 12 ounce House Margarita is only $3.00, too...perfect for dinner. If they make a mistake, the servers/management... More

Son and daughter in law brought me to On the Border for my 60th birthday. Was sitted immediately, had great service and really good food. I had the beef chimichangas which were great! My son had his usual enchiladas and my daughter in law had the nachos supreme. That was enough food for all three of us! everything was fresh... More

We were just passing through and wanted some Mexican. This was a chain that we've had mixed results with before. For us on this day it was very good. Food was good, service was also good. We probably hit it just before the rush hour so we had a very relaxing and enjoyable meal.

This location used to be a go to. Sad to say that is no longer the case. The last visit equated to an episode of the Twilight Zone. The staff seemed hurried and stressed, not to mention our waitress was terribly clueless, rushed and robotic. It seemed everyone was doing 3-4 jobs and there was no management around. The place...

Chicken bowl was not good. Skinny margarita was awful. Chips tasted likes they were from Costco. Service was good. Hard to find.

Good food, quick service is the standard. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the options. We really like the hips here, made on site, thin, crisp, and hot. We both had carnita burritos which we pretty tasty.

My husband and I recently decided to stop by "On the Border" for happy hour and dinner. Neither of us had ever been to this particular location previously. We won't likely return either. Although our server, Shelly, was great and the margaritas were terrific, our food was terrible. The chicken, peppers, and onion on my fajita skillet were not only... More

Stopped for dinner and the waitress was amazing. Jessie had only been there a week, but truly understands customer service. Margarita and chips and salsa were tasty and plentiful.
