Great Mexican food and always great service. Nice outdoor seating for warm days/evenings. Family that was with me seemed to be fine with the restaurant and food as they have never been to this one. I have been multiple time and never disappointed.

Having moved to Peoria recently, we have been trying to find good restaurants - especially Mexican food. This is not the place. We went there on a Saturday afternoon and it was quite slow so the service was excellent. The drinks were good, chips good and atmosphere very nice. The food was absolutely horrible and I would go out on... More

When you're 3 hours away from the actual Mexican border, "On the Border" is probably not the best choice for Mexican food. The all-you-can-eat enchilada Monday special drew us in, but it wasn't really about all you COULD eat but rather all you actually wanted to - which wasn't much. The chicken was tasteless. From the white sauce to the... More

Cheese crisp, tortilla soup, enchiladas were great. So was the margaritas we ordered. Waiter and bartender were great with explaining the specials when their happy hour started and what the happy hour drink specials were

I really can't recommend this place. The food is fair and I ordered a bloody mary. It was just tomato juice????? The bartender came over and apologized he said that is how they tell them to make it. WHAT????????? He made me a doctored up one but it was still bad. Pass on this.

My Fajitas were barely warm - as the plate easy not sizzling when it came. Onions and peppers were undercooked (not carmelized). Service was mediocre. Not going back again!!!!

Well, what can I say this restaurant is not great. The service and prices were fine but the food quality was poor. I order fajitas and everything on the plate tasted the same. The tortilla were way too thick and tasted raw. I'll not be going back.

For a chain restaurant On The Border serves very good Mexican food and Margaritas. Clean and good service. Much better than many small Mexican restaurants. We often stop by for Margaritas and their Sampler Plate. Once when we stopped there for an anniversary dinner and a couple of things did not go just right the manager comped our entire meal.

Today myself and my spouse visited this location and the food was surprisingly... TERRIBLE!! My order of Fajitas was missing the flour tortillas, the beans were very watery with scattered whole beans and no cheese. They were like a soup consistency. This turned my stomach! The veggies (green, red peppers, and onions )had a weird look to them. They appeared... More
