Not a bad place, but definitely not anything anyone would miss. The waitress was nice, but the food is exceptionally generic and boring. Typical food chain, nothing worth making a special trip over.

The very best place to sit, drink, eat and be merry. The staff has pretty good customer service. There is one young lady who knows how to get you clear headed to walk without being picked up for PI, or public intoxication. Ice water people will sober you up. I loved the meal.

Nice restaurant, friendly staff and good food. Have been here before and always like to come back when we are in town. The music this time was too loud, first time for that.

Typical chain food but the service was very good. The food was decent. I was visiting OKC and this place was easy to find and get to. Next tie I would find a local owned place. I didn't know this was a chain and I normally try to avoid chains to support the local folks and to try local food.... More

I had a bunch of food and I am a vegetarian and I loved all of it. The chips and salsa were fresh, the food was prepared well and the waitress was kind, efficient and endearing.

I have never ordered anything that tasted bad from On the Border. Try the Guacamole that they make at your table side! IT IS AWESOME!!

If you have a car, drive up to Chelinos near 16th and Meridian, it's a dive, but better than the food served here, and the service is genuine and good. We used a gift certificate here, and they were rude beyond belief.

Food and drink were OK, nothing outstanding. There was a outside patio if you like to sit outside and the service was good. Quesadilla was nice, but the Prickly Pear Margarita I had was a bit too sweet.

Ate at OTB twice while in OKC. Good service and food both times. Very close to OKC fairgrounds and where we stayed.
