Stopped in for lunch and we were immediately seated. Chips and salsa were promptly brought to our table and drinks were ordered. I ordered the beef fajitas off the lunch menu. We enjoyed the chips and salsa, great flavor. The refried beans, rice, homemade tortillas, and fajitas were excellent. As always we enjoyed eating at OTB, the only disappointment would... More

Granted, it was 7:30, but we waited 5 minutes before we were greeted and seated. Had to send the guac back because brown and old. Food was not that great.

My wife was in the mood for Mexican food so we came here. The southwest chicken tacos were great. We love the salsa too. Right by 2 shopping malls.

I waited seven minutes to be seated, then another fifteen before anyone came to take my order. I witnessed two other couples enter, then leave, because no one came to seat them. I had to ask for drink refills, and had to actually get up to find someone to tab-out. The food was nothing above average, so I won't be... More

Friends wanted to go here. I was a little hesitant because the last time I ate there it was awful with a capital A and I said I'd never go back. Anyhow waitress somewhat inattentive but we weren't in a hurry so no problem. Food finally came and all four of us had offered a different meal. I ate three... More

The OTB chips and salsa you can get at Walmart is the best ever. So I wanted to try the restaurant. I thought it was good. I had a bowl with rice, beans, avocado, mushrooms, lettuce and such. A very good lunch. Give it a try. At least get the salsa. Food is way better than Ted's.

The food was ok to good but there are so many Tex-Mex restaurants that On The Border simply does not distinguish itself as being any better than most Tex-Mex venues. It does not convince the diner that he must return

The restaurant was not clean, the table was sticky and the food was marginal at best. The margarita was pure lemonade, with only a minimal amount, at most, of tequila.

We waited a little over 30 minutes for dinner to arrive, and it wasn't on a night they were busy. Great chips & salsa....so, so shrimp fajitas. Service was not good at all. Won't go back.
