Been to many OTBs all over the country - so knew what to expect. Larger group that the hostess said was an hour wait...I looked outside on patio to find two large, empty tables and asked if we could have them put together...so they agreed and it took forever to set the two tables up (not sure why). Finally got... More

My friend and I ate dinner here on New Year's Day. We were seated promptly and greeted immediately by our server. We each chose options from the "build your own" menu. I chose the chicken tortilla soup and house salad, which were delicious! My friend had the enchilada and taco selections with rice and beans, and he said they were... More

This was an unplanned lunch stop. The inside & decor are fun. We were seated fairly quickly even though it was quite busy. Our drinks took a little longer than they should have to arrive (water and a draft beer). Our waitress was very nice... just very busy. The chips and salsa were tasty. When our meals arrived, they were... More

We went here for lunch. I had the green chili chimichanga. I really liked the green chili sauce. It was plenty to eat. The service was prompt and efficient.

I am really a fan of Mexican food. This On The Border in Waco, TX was a really good one. I ordered chicken nachos and the one served was top notch, did not regret about it. My coronarita was on the right recipe. I really enjoy the service from the server always very corteous!!!! Keep up!!!!!

We stopped in here as we were passing through Waco on our way from Dallas to Austin. It was a little further off the freeway than expected but worth the extra mile or two. We were greeted with a smile and promptly seated by a friendly hostess. The decor was pleasant without being fussy, and a server was ready to... More

My son loves OTB. We were visiting Waco and he was so excited that there was an OTB. The server was excellent. She made the Guacamole Live one of the best we have had. She kept our chip bowl full. We are so glad that we went to it!
