We generally don't care for "generica" chain establishments. but, we have been to this resturant at least 20 times. Only once was immediate seating an issue. The hostess was quick to seat us in the bar & even treated the kids to "drinks". Kids menu caters to a wide range of tastes. The portions are huge & we love the healthy offerings! Great Margaritas.

This place is awesome! I have to agree the other reviews are a little harsh, I've never had a bad experience there. The food is always plentiful and they have a great variety on their menu. For Mexican food I always decide on the chips and salsa if I'll go back and I love their chips and salsa. We always have fun there and my husband won't even let us go anywhere else! His favorite dish are the brisket tacos and I love their cheese rellenos. I got an e-mail from their website for free queso and coupons will definitely make me go back to a place! Who couldn't use a little free queso? The servers there are very knowledgeable and attentive. They are patient with my kids and we always have a great time. Thanks OTB!

Good Chips and salsa. Good Margarita's. The rest of the food, just OK. Had chicken enchiladas and chicken tacos. I've had better, Sorry! A little on the dry side.

My family and I absolutely love this place! We go there at least twice a week for lunch. Their prices are very affordable, and the service is great. The staff really knows how to keep on top of their guests satisfaction!

I went to On the Border during the week with three friends during a break from work. We were seated promptly and greeted by the waitress who took our drink orders. We got our drinks and then sat and waited, she came back 15 minutes later with our drinks and some chips and salsa (good thing because we were starving). After taking our orders we sat and waited some more. Finally after 30 minutes and still no food(we only had an hour for lunch) we stopped our waitress and told her that we needed our food in to go boxes. More waiting, and finally our food arrived and so did the check. We asked the waitress if she could split the check, reminding her that we were already late back to work and she replied "Let me go check on my other tables first" my friend told her that we really didn't have time to wait and that she really needed to split it now, the waitress responded by storming off and growling at us, yes, growling. We finally had had enough and called over the manager, after explaining that we were running late and what the waitress had done he then asked us to WAIT LONGER so he could cut our checks in half. Finally, after what looked like pulling teeth on the managers part he decided to fully comp our meal. To top it all off, when we got back to work and decided to eat our somewhat cold meals, thye waitress had only given us spoons to eat our burritos!!

Pros: No wait, decent food.

Cons: Overpriced mexican food, terrible service

Wow. I am shocked that this restaurant got such a poor review from the first and only poster. I have been to this location several times, and I tell you what, the first visit is what did it for us. My husband and I were on the lookout for a new home, and before checking out what is now our home and has been for going on 9 months, we definately came hungry! We had recognized the ambiance immediately, and loved it. We thought it had beautiful decor for such a mexican restaurant. The music was fun, and hip. Note: it might be a bit on the loud side, so be careful if loud music is not your thing. We dined here for lunch, and the portions were enough to be called a dinner portion. The taste...wow...it was amazing! I remember my husband had taco salad and was quite pleased. I had enchiladas, and to be honest with you, they were some of the best I had anywhere. To top that off...I am hard to please on mexican food, since my stepmom is hispanic, and knows all about mexican food...I have eaten homeade many a time...and this place was so close to it! It is hard to find a great mexican food place. This place is a winner!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Nothing bad to be found here!

The service alone almost made me walk out. No drinks or chips until we had been seated for 15 minutes. Once we did order, over an hour to get our fajitas and the restaurant was half empty. The fajitas were undercooked and as chewy as beef jerky. Yuck!!!
