This was our first time at this particular On the Border. We were fortunate to have an outstanding server, which made the meal very enjoyable. The food was very good. My wife's fajitas were hot and tasty, my fish taco and chicken enchilada good. The...More

With the huge number of Mexican restaurants to try we haven't been to On the Border in a while. We enjoyed our return visit. This is one of the best places for queso with big, crisp, hot chips. The salsa is fresh and tomato-y. I...More

Our server was very good but the food was not. The sides of rice and beans are served family style and what a joke. They are bland and cold. The flavor of the beef seems to be someones experiment in flavor torture. Is it Mexican...More

Celebrity chefs would call their soft tacos a wet diaper. First of all, I'm not entirely sure that was ground beef and the chicken was floating in this brown sauce. The brisket tacos came with an ounce of bbq sauce. The brisket wasn't too bad-it...More

They use to be good. I dont know what happened, but their food quality has gone down hill! The rice is hard and not done and the beans have a yucky flavor. I dont reccomend this place at all!

Stopped in my brothers for dinner. Service was terrible. Server couldn't remember anything, did not know the menu and screwed up several requests. Twice we saw her sitting and chatting with another table of customers before she took our order. Food was mediocre at best....More

So I have been here many times and Heather might give me reason not to come back. Slow. Rude. Not my favorite. The water tasted like dirt today and she pretty much said tuff. This is Bedford water. Not the right response. No solutions. Food...More
