Short staffed in both bar and restaurant. Large party of 40 overwhelmed restaurant on a Tuesday night. While service was okay due to short staffing, food was not that great. Burrito meat was salty and green chili was lacking. Fish tacos were fair at best....More

Did you know that for less than $8 you can get a quart of salsa and some fresh, amazing tortilla chips to bring home? For our family, nacho night MUST start with a stop at OTB to go. :-)

So my third visit in a month. Avoid the steak, it was awful. Tough to chew and over cooked. Burritos are good and fajitas great. The issues with chains is you can get the same food in Highlands Ranch Colorado and Buffalo NY. Service has...More

We enjoy On the Border for consistently good food and though we enjoyed our recent visit, the service was a bit of a disappointment. The restaurant is little difficult to find, buried behind other buildings, but ultimately visible. Out ditzy server was a lot of...More

10 years ago I'd have given this restaurant 5 stars. I first began going to their restaurants in Dallas 30 years ago, and always loved the food and service. When this one opened in Denver 15 years ago, I was elated that it was just...More

We frequent this restaurant because of its great value for the money. Happy Hour specials are a top draw for us; but, emails to people who join their "Cantina Club" often contain "offers we can't refuse". A couple days ago we received 2-item combos for...More

We stopped in for an early dinner using a gift card. It was about 3pm. Even though we saw many open tables, we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The atmosphere was comfortable enough although it was pretty loud. Service was friendly,...More

When it comes to Mexican food, chain restaurants can often not be very good. But there are many independently owned ones that aren't so good either! So we're always willing to give it a try. We have eaten here before, but it's been a long...More
