On the border has been a restaurant my family and I enjoy on a regular basis. Margaritas are very good. I LOVE their rice mixed with corn, soup is very good, portion sizes can be huge.

Average On The Border. We have been going here off and on for many years. We have never had any problems with service or food. I recomend it. And we will keep going back. Get the Margaritas and Fajitas!

I got to Tyler and wanted Mexican food and a margarita for dinner. I came across "On the Border" while driving around. Decided to give it a try. Very good food and super margaritas.
