This beautifully decorated stand alone Mexican restaurant has been one of our favorites for several years, but not any more. Their handmade tortillas had been under a heat lamp far too long and as a result were soggy and heavy; a request for fresh ones...More

Once in an while when we can't think of a better place to go, we stop at On the border. The. chips are hot and the tortilla soup is good. You won't get anything bad, but I can't say anything is outstanding either.

When visiting in the area we thought we'd try this out. We arrived around 3:30 and were told it was still lunch specials. We each ordered the pick 3 choices along with rice and beans. It was served hot, seasoned perfectly and lots of it....More

Nice food, not great. I had beef fajita's, they were ok but not great. Beef wasn't the best quality and there wasn't much taste it. One of those places where you get 3-4 small tortilla and you have to chose between sour cream or guacamole...More

The restaurant is good and the food is more kind of Texmex. They have good drinks and the prices are fair.

We live in the area so we frequent On the Border often. My husband and I love their thin chips & salsa. They have one of the best margaritas around! We like them "on the rocks", no salt. I also like their happy hour menu!...More

The bordurrito is my absolute favorite! It is indeed a huge burrito but worth every bite. The service that I received at this location was great, our server at the time was very attentive and helpful.

Enchiladas Suizas....they have a different idea on this dish. It was good, but really it was only chicken enchiladas with pepper jack cheeses and green sauce. Should be cream sauce and paprika sprinkled on top. Anyway, I don't like their version, so I will order...More
