I shall never willingly go to On the Border again. Year before last they advertised Veterans eat free. I tried to avail myself of the free meal. Was presented a bill and told I did not order the correct thing

We sat in the bar area which is seat yourself. The server came right away to help us and was extremely friendly. Food was served in a timely manner. Watermelon Margarita was excellent!

Not being from the area we didn't want to drive anywhere else so we waited. What we noticed though was the 9 open tables and were a little confused by the... More

There was so much dust in the air, that we could not enjoy our food. Looked like a dust storm. Wish I could post my videos.
