Since Dob Pablo's in the Greenwood area closed, my husband and I have been without a decent Mexican restaurant. Got a hankering for it the other day and figured, since we have been driving past this restaurant for years, we would give On The Border a shot. The atmosphere is nice enough, your usual Mexican decor. Staff seemed friendly and... More

This was my first and last time visiting here. The salsa was too spicy for any kid but okay for adults who like spicy foods. It was the best thing there. Our waitress was pleasant enough but definitely over worked and too many tables to deal with. I had 2 tacos and a side of rice. The rice was decent... More

My husband and I, after living 22 years on the southside of Indy had never been here...and decided to go today on a whim! We had the excellent Cameron as our server...he was efficient and helpful when we had questions. We both had the "Ultimate Fajita"...which was a lot of food in itself! A little bit of everything! We had... More

My wife and I decided to stop by On the Border after running some errands. Always a good place for a quick dinner. We love the Chips and Salsa here and consider it one of the better places for this. If you like Mexican food you will enjoy On the Border. The Margarita's are tasty too!

My wife and I went here for an early dinner on a busy Saturday night. We were seated right away. I eat vegan and my wife eats vegetarian. On the Border has a special vegetarian menu which makes meal selection easy. They serve free nachos and salsa. The nachos are the best anywhere. The salsa is good too but medium... More

Went in for a late lunch or early dinner on a Sunday. Service was not good and the Chimichanga was so salty I couldn't finish my meal. My wife's dinner was not really any better. Won't go back, I can get really good Mexican food with better service and for less money in the area.

Authentic Mexican fare. Tacos are huge! Nice place adjacent to the mall. 4 item combo will feed two adults for under $12.00. They only have one variety of salsa though and it's very spicy. Kids can't tolerate it. They need to fix that.

It was with a large group and the service and atmosphere was very nice. Our food was also very good.
