It's been a while since we've eaten at an OTB (not one close to us any more) and were surprised to find lots of changes to the menu since our last stop. There were several vegetarian options that jumped out, but all seemed to center round portabela mushrooms. Looking at their on-line menu they either have a separate vegetarian menu,... More

I've dined in several Mexican restaurants in Charlotte, and On The Border remains the best. The quality of the food, its presentation, and the bar menu are superb. The only thing I miss is the red potato burrito they had some years ago. It was an excellent dish that couldn't be found elsewhere. I'm mystified as to why they got... More

Quick business luncheon. Loved the chips and salsa. Thinking great sangria too but didn't have. Ate a couple of tacos that were good not the best but good enough for a 3 star.

We took our two granddaughters here for a celebration. The food was predictable and the service was very good. It was just what we wanted . A place to eat and talk.

We visited this location on a Sunday evening. We were seated immediately, but waited 20 minutes before I asked the hostess if someone could take our drink order. We ordered two waters and one Corona. After 10 minutes, we needed to ask the waiter about our drinks. I ordered a Shrimp Bowl. It normally comes with queso fresco, avocado, and... More

I love going here to satisfy my Mexican food fetish! It's so delicious but it will hit your pocket a little bit. For me and my elementary school aged children, my bill is about $60 prior to the tip. They are packed usually too so if you're in a hurry, you might wanna go early and check the wait time.... More

Our server name was Andrew and I will def request his section next time I dine here. The menu looked updated from the last time I dined in and... More
