Not every member of our family loves Mexican food but we all love On the Border. The Mexican food is excellent but they offer sides like French Fries that my children love. There is something for everyone at OTB.

My wife and I just ate here on a very busy Friday night. Her California burrito and my southwest chicken tacos were excellent. Even with the crowd we still received attentive service. We'll be back

We've been here probably 40+ times since the opening and as the years go by the service keeps going downhill. Hard to hire good servers? The food is still good though I must say, which is why we come back from time to time. I...More
