Well, what can I say this restaurant is not great. The service and prices were fine but the food quality was poor. I order fajitas and everything on the plate tasted the same. The tortilla were way too thick and tasted raw. I'll not be going back.

For a chain restaurant On The Border serves very good Mexican food and Margaritas. Clean and good service. Much better than many small Mexican restaurants. We often stop by for Margaritas and their Sampler Plate. Once when we stopped there for an anniversary dinner and a couple of things did not go just right the manager comped our entire meal.

Today myself and my spouse visited this location and the food was surprisingly... TERRIBLE!! My order of Fajitas was missing the flour tortillas, the beans were very watery with scattered whole beans and no cheese. They were like a soup consistency. This turned my stomach! The veggies (green, red peppers, and onions )had a weird look to them. They appeared... More

Server was slow and ?unfriendly? over all. Few smiles. Order incorrect. Food was average. Nothing outstanding. Will go elsewhere next time.

If you are in Peoria on Bell Road, right off the 101, and you are craving Mexican food, please stop here and eat and have a very good and tasty Margarita. The waitress and waiters are on the ball and come over to your table to make sure you have enough chips, salsa and refill your water and tea without... More

We had a very enjoyable experience with a large party dinner. The service was exceptional, and we were served in a very timely manner. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered and the waitress was always there to refill drinks and to ask if anyone needed anything else. Great experience

Today was exceptionally slow service. No crowd. Just ridiculously slow. The food was not up to par. Not the usual visit.

Nice selection on their happy hour menu. The beer is always cold and reasonable. The fajitas are very good and the queso is excellent. Also the patio is good place to dine.

No On the Borders where I live and this is my favorite Tex-Mex chain, so i made it a point to eat here during a visit to AZ. I was there when the doors opened for lunch so i could eat and make my flight out. Knowing this, the waiter made sure i had my check, asked if I wanted... More
