Went here after work, I ordered the ultimate fajitas and loved them; it had a little bit of everything, shrimp, beef, chicken and pork! They also have some Mexican beers as wells as tequilas.

I really enjoy the Mexican food from On The Border, stacked nachos is really good and the coronarita is amazing. Five stars when the service is good, because the food has always been.
