Dropped in for a late lunch on Saturday with family. Busy, hopping place but we were seated immediately and chips and salsa delivered seconds later. 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.

The service was warm and friendly. The food was hot and fresh. All orders came out correctly. The drinks that the waitress recommended where the best.

We stopped at 830pm starving and both ordered Sampler App. Wow we took food back to hotel for breakfast. The Chimi was great and the Quesadilla great. The stacked nachos not my thing but my partner loved them We traded my nachos for his chimi. The salsa was good and the chips good. Waiter was friendly and price fair. Would... More

Took my wife and two kids here and we had a great dinner. I was worried it would be a little busy on a Saturday night, especially considering how many cars were in the lot. I was surprised that there was plenty of seating. As soon as we sat down, we were greeted by our server, Nick. The service was... More

Would not recommend! The food seems very processed and not fresh. The wait staff is shabby in appearance ( worn uniforms, dirty shoes and young). Our waiter used improper handling when delivering our meals. His hands touched our food items which was gross! We opted to leave after our order arrived. The seats and tables felt dirty similar to a... More

We came here on a Wednesday night. They have a great deal. Fajita Wednesday. Chicken fajitas are cheaper but they are lunch portions. Also the margaritas are also only $4 a piece. And they are the bigger size. The service was wonderful and speedy. Great place to go on a Wednesday night.

My husband and I had lunch here on an extremely Saturday in August. The restaurant was crowded a noisy, but the food was good. My husband had the steak fajitas and enjoyed them; I had a chicken chimichanga which was OK - but not among the best I've ever had. Server was very gracious and friendly. We would go again... More

When I or anyone for that matter go to restaurants to have dinner, even more so with the family, service is of the upmost importance from the start. This On the Border (Concord Mills) was outstanding from the inception thru the end. The food was terrific as well. I've had inconsistent visits at other local on the borders and am... More

We've been to this location multiple times. Food is about average. Nothing amazing, but good Mexican. The salsa is either pretty spicy or straight up tomato sauce. That's disappointing as we don't care for either. The fixings with the fajitas are skimpy and they charge you for more. So be prepared. If you bring kids, ask for tortilla dough. It's... More
