AMAZING! The steak (anything) and Guacamole Live! are worth going for and I don't mind the cost because it's so delicious and surprisingly healthy!

I used to work at an ON THE BORDER, so I expected our visit to be good. The Lunch Burrito with shredded beef now comes with rice stuffed into the burrito instead of roasted red potatoes. This means you get 2 servings of rice with this dish. This meal was really a Mexican Rice Burrito with a smidgen of cheese and a few shreds of beef. Totally not what I remember or liked about this menu item! This is really cheap! If I would have wanted a RICE BURRITO, I would have gone to Taco Bell ! The Mojito seemed to be weak. I don't know if the bartender left out a shot or didn't put as much alcohol in the drink, but it seemed more like a wine cooler without any kick whatsoever. This seemed like I wasn't even at the same restaurant that used to have high standards of food and service standards and specifications! What has happened to ON THE BORDER??! I don't think that I will be frequenting this location when I visit Athens.

Pros: Nice atmosphere and good location

Cons: FOOD MADE WITH CHEAPER INGREDIENTS AND BAR DRINKS ARE WEAK

3 times I have been there and I have received slow service. My husband refuses to go back. Service is such an important thing to us...and food obviously!

The food is fair and the staff is nice. the best thing about On the Border is eating outside on thier porch. In the summer you could sit out there all night. They also frequently run specials for 9.99
