We really do like the food here. It's always fresh and tasty, but over the last 3-4 years, we've been here probably 6 times. Every single time we get terrible service from undertrained servers and super long waits for the food to arrive. We've probably visited for the last time.

We went for the National Fajita Day for the Chicken Fajitas. Which were excellent. The place was crowded. We were told there would be a 20 min. wait, but we probably only waited 10 and it was worth it. Irma our waitress was the best waitress we've ever had. We were worried that it might be closed due to the... More

We had been traveling for a few hours and just wanted a nice dinner. The waitress acted like we were really putting her out by being there. I don't think she smiled once. I had to ask for a water refill. They had $2 tacos that night so I decided that sounded good. They were mini (aka microscopic!) tacos. No... More

As usual food was excellent, service was mediocre. I had to refill my ice tea. The food brings me back. It is tasty and the right portion size.

This location could have died among all the construction that made access difficult, but it seems to have survived. Yes, it's a chain, but the staff here are quite friendly and accommodating. You have to be careful not to consume a 2000-calorie meal, but with the build-your-own plate, you can choose just what you like. The menu does flag some... More

We can always count on great food and great service at this On the Border restaurant. We know when we are seated in Martin's section, that we will leave satisfied and feeling like a valued customer! We often take advantage of the daily deals, although they can change at any time. This is a restaurant that my entire family can... More

I really enjoy going to this place. It has a good variety of food. My favorite item is the Kalula Ice Cream Cake. We went recently for the special deal on bottomless tortilla soup.

We've eaten here a number of times and found their service and food to be very good. Fajitas and carne asada are my personal favorites but the fish taco and enchiladas are very good too.

I had not been to this restaurant in several years and I was very disappointed in our experience. It started with the young man that was the host on Thursday evening - no smile, no welcome, just some grumbling about follow him. Service was unimpressive and slow. It was not a busy night, with at least half of the tables... More

I can't provide a review on the food because we never got that far. We had a party of 15 and were told at the door that they could not accommodate us - at 6pm on a Wednesday evening! We were not provided an estimated wait time, or even asked if we wanted to wait, only told that they did... More
