It's a fairly common chain restaurant that's always a favorite wherever we go. Located close to many different amenities in the area, it's a perfect place to stop and take a break from a long day of shopping or browsing. There's never a very long wait, and the food is tasty for a good price.

on the border is a common chain restaurant. Sometimes there is a wait, but it is never that long, and it is normally worth it. Though ofthen times problems are encountered with the service, the managers will normally take control and give you something in return for your hardship while dining there. On the border is a good alternative to typical italian, chinese, or american food.

I normally steer away from chain restaurants but must admit that my family and I had a nice dinner here. A little wait at the door as expected, but the service was fast and friendly! Make sure you get the "Guacamole Live" appetizer as it is very tasty! The dinner selection were also very good. Go on a Thursday night for half-price margaritas!

PROS: Good food, fast friendly service, family atmosphere
CONS: None

My friends and I often come here whenever we want Mexican food (well, Americanized Mexican food). Their chips & salsa, which are provided free of charge, are one of the reasons we come! The salsa is just the right amount of spiciness without losing its salsa flavor... I enjoyed their trios before - tortilla soup, chicken or steak fajitas, and brownie sundae - for only $10!!!! I hope this offer comes back! You should also sign up for their Club Cantina on their website. You'll get lots of free offers, like free empanadas or dessert (with purchase of an entree of course). Very well worth it!

My friend and I frequent On the Border on route 1 pretty often. We like the atmosphere, the food is yummy. We usually get the combos (where you can choose 2, 3 or 4 different items) and the drinks are good. Overall you get a decent amount of food for the price that you pay.

PROS: Food, Atmosphere, Margaritas
CONS: None that I can think of

Message from On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina

Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
