                    I do enjoy their patio seating and the restaurant is clean and has good food; however, half the times I have been there I have had a server that seemed less than enthusiastic to serve us. I always go there with some classmates on a Saturday afternoon and look forward to the time spent. When the server is nice, the experiences is wonderful. When the server is not nice, it makes the lunch seem disappointing. The food and drinks are always good and dependable, so I wish the wait staff would be, too.

                    Pros: clean eating area

                    Cons: unpredictable quality in wait staff

                    On The Border is a classical Mexican restaurant located very conveniently in Mission Valley. You feel like you are in old Mexico when you enter the doors. Excellent food and service. We go often.

                    I enjoy the food at On The Border in Mission Valley, however I have had several experiences where the waitstaff did not bring the food to the table. During one visit we placed our order and snacked on chips and drinks. At 3 different times the waitress told us that our order would "be right out" and that "they are putting it on the plate!". However over an hour went buy and we still did not get our food. We decided to leave, and the hostess said that she hoped we enjoyed our meal. I stated "You should bring the food before you ask people that." We walked out. A few months later we had a similar experience again! So while I do enjoy their food, it is too much of a hassle to actually be served. As a result I cannot recommend this restaurant.

                    PROS: Good food
                    CONS: Food is not brought to table.
