Good Mexican food, with the usual selection of tacos and fajitas and excellent margaritas. One of our group ordered a glass of wine, which he said was not very good. Probably better to stick to mixed cocktails, which were very good. Service was good, and...More

We had a small Birthday party at our home and On the Border supplied everything from delivery, plates to food and set it up. Food was great!!! and we didn't have to do any cooking.

We went here for Mother's Day lunch. The food was ok and the service was unimpressive. The worst part was the nasty sticky table. These need to be deep cleaned... my napkin stuck to the table. It was gross.

Great happy hour deals on margaritas. Good food and attentive staff. Come here often and staff will make an effort to remember your favorites!

Nice place. Great atmosphere. But the food was poor. My poblano pepper in my chili relleno was cold and raw. The beans as well as the rice were hard and unpalatable. Good ingredients, poor preparation. Not on my list of places I will return to.
