I had a friend in from Washington DC & she wanted to go there to get a Mexican food fix. I called earlier to try to reserve a table because it would be a busy Friday evening . They said they didn't do reservations, but if I called 15 min before we arrived, they would put us on a waiting... More

It has been a while since I visited this chain. Typical texmex food. I like their chips and salsa except it's a little bit salty. This place location kind of hidden for out town ppl or visitors. Other than that it's good.

We moved to the Grand Prairie and were so happy to see an OTB in the neighborhood. We frequented them often in Illinois and if we found one when we traveled because of their food and service and this one did not disappoint. They will see us often being as close as we are whether for meals, gatherings, or business... More

Enjoyed an afternoon lunch for two. Attentive waiter entire time. Order brisket tacos which was good, however the several of the chips (with salsa) was a little stale. Extremely cold inside, but managed to have a tasty lunch.

We visited on a Saturday night and understand why there were so many empty tables. We counted five employees and a manager standing around talking...and didn't see a single one working. We sat for nearly ten minutes and then left without anyone stopping by our table.

I ate here with three work colleagues on a lunch break. We were all very impressed with the friendly attentive service. Our server brought our drinks, chips and queso appetizer very promptly as she did our entrees. The food was very good, and I'm a bit fussy about Mexican food. For a chain restaurant, this was a very good experience.... More

I went to this location as a last resort. While OTB food is generally OK, their hot sauce is as mediocre as it comes and I refuse to eat there. Nevertheless, I dropped in for a couple drinks while some football games were on. Cocktails were a bit high, but the service was very good. Mens room is TINY and... More

The service was great, the strawberry lemonade is very good. The waiter kept my glass filled. Always want to try some thing different, each time I seem to order the Fajita. The Border Sampler appetizer can be a meal in itself. Don't like the rest room. If you don't lock the door some one can walk in on you.
