Was a Saturday evening and were busy and probably short on staff but the manager was working the floor and making things ok. Ordered the Ultimate Fajita's and they were great. All the meats and shrimp were super. Niece ordered Mango Chicken Salad was wasn't thrilled. Overall good experience.

My first time here, and EVERYTHING exceeded my expectations!!! The server was very attentive, and helpful when ordering. The house margarita and the food, were both highly satisfactory!! I ordered the grand burrito----HUGE---enough for 2-3 to eat, so I had to take the rest home. The price/value was exceptional!! I wil definitely be going again!

Dinners at On the Border always begin with chips and salsa, but we were not offered the option of the "spicier" sauce. Cocktails (Borderita Rocks Rita and Wild Berry Swirl Rita) and the Dos Equis Lager were good and thirst quenching. My Queso Chicken was very dry with no or very little queso. Chicken fajitas were surprisingly moist and the... More

Tons of places to eat along Hwy 36 and I chose the saltiest! Our table had 11 people, no wait which was great! Lots of free chips and salsa, decent service, but the food was barely adequate. Everyone had food leftover, and nobody wanted to-go containers. Not spiced well, and very salty. Everything! Avoid the Monday "endless enchiladas" as you... More

Food was good and typical of a franchise Mexican restaurant. Nothing special good or bad. Server was decent til it came time to pay. Then she hovered over us and when we gave her payment she asked if we wanted our change back. What???

Last time we visited, things didn't go as well. Six months later we decided to try again, and it was a much better experience. Wait staff was prompt, food and drinks were on time and good.

My husband and I and our friend stopped at On the Border in Avon on the way home from a funeral this week. We wanted dinner and were told that seats were available in the bar. We were seated and waited for service. Others who came in after us were seated and received immediate attention. I went to the bartender... More

My wife and I had a nice lunch. Good $3.00 margaritas. Nice lunch specials. I had the chicken fajitas with rice and refried beans. My wife had the chimichanga with rice and refried beans. The free chips and salsa are a nice addition. We were checked on frequently but not too much. Good place to go.
