We went for a lunch and our first impression was that the prices are high. After reading the menu more carefully we found some better prices among the lunch specials. We really had a good and inexpensive lunch. The service was good. The decorations of the walls and atmosphere are very nice.

Stopped in for lunch with my boys who love Mexican food. Slight wait, but it was lunch rush on a holiday. Service was wonderful, kept us full of drinks and chips and salsa. Boys got their usual quesadilla with rice. I opted for a lower calorie enchilada dish. It was good for low calorie, and the grilled squash for the... More

We went there with the kids and we loved it.. The food is great and delicious. Also, they have a real good kids menu. The staff was great and very friendly. Restaurant is close to majors highways and walking distance to Concord Mills Mall and others attractions.

We love Tex-Mex food and this restaurant did not disappoint. The tortillas are made fresh at the restaurant, and the service is terrific. I had the fish taco and a chicken enchilada and both were delicious. My husband had the fajitas and he ordered the combo...that had shrimp, steak, chicken and pork. It was more food than he could eat!... More

Friendly, welcoming waitress Emily arrived in under a minute to check in and order up drinks. Appetizers and drinks quickly delivered. Chips and salsa refills arrived without having to ask. Food arrived hot and all... More

Every time we visit On the Border we get fresh, hot food and great service. We always get their white cheese to go with chips and ask for mild salsa instead of spicy one that they normally serve.
