We haven't been to On the Border in years. On a recent trip to Texas we went in for dinner. It was walkable from our hotel. I ordered the taco salad with chicken. The waitress warned me that it didn't come in a taco shell....More

There is too much competition in Texas for good Mexican and TexMex. On the Border in Denton was ok - but there are many other places that server better, more authentic food. We visited on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy but we were...More

This is a typical chain restaurant with average food. The staff here however is well above average. They are friendly and attentive providing consistently great service. They did not waiver when faced with special orders and offered suggestions to help meet our dietary needs readily.

I like On the Borders, but this is the best one I have found. Food was tastier than I have had at other Borders. Service was great. Prices are really reasonable. If you like mexican you can't go wrong.

The food here is pretty good Tex-Mex. The chicken chimichanga and their tacos are the bomb! The salsa is great and the queso is really good. As far as service goes, there's really nothing "wrong ". There was two of us dining and we ordered...More

We have been to On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina about 3 times because it is close to our home. The food is fairly well presented, the taste is good, but I think they charge too much.

I honestly have no idea if On The Border can do that - you might call ahead and ask about accommodations for that many and see what's offered. Hope this helps at all
