The greeters at On the Border were very helpful in getting u a booth on a very busy day. Four of us were there for lunch. The food was good as were the margaritas. Serving size was very good and service was adequately given how busy it was. A couple of requests for addition chips were handled with a smile.... More

Wednesday is chicken fajita night at On the Border and they were running a special -- $2 margaritas. Who wouldn’t want that? This On the Border is in the row of restaurants in front of Concord Mills near the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It is clean, but I did forget to check the sanitation grade. Service was excellent; we didn’t have... More

I wasnt disappointed but wasnt over impressed either. Food was average and a tad pricey for the quality. Restaurant was clean and service was fine. Kids meal looked better than mine. I had enchiladas (my fave) and there was nothing notable or special about them. My husband had a burrito which was huge and looked great but had no flavor... More

The food here was great, staff was friendly. I however felt very cramped at the table. Had a booth with 2 adults and 2 children. Just did not feel there was enough room. Maybe it was the large dishes, chips, salsa, and drinks at the table at all times...I will go back here again, I just wish there was more... More

We went for a lunch and our first impression was that the prices are high. After reading the menu more carefully we found some better prices among the lunch specials. We really had a good and inexpensive lunch. The service was good. The decorations of the walls and atmosphere are very nice.

Stopped in for lunch with my boys who love Mexican food. Slight wait, but it was lunch rush on a holiday. Service was wonderful, kept us full of drinks and chips and salsa. Boys got their usual quesadilla with rice. I opted for a lower calorie enchilada dish. It was good for low calorie, and the grilled squash for the... More

We went there with the kids and we loved it.. The food is great and delicious. Also, they have a real good kids menu. The staff was great and very friendly. Restaurant is close to majors highways and walking distance to Concord Mills Mall and others attractions.
