We enjoyed good food. Qausidia was great. My mom enjoyed a couple of drinks. Service was slow but acceptable. We recommend it.

My DD and I frequent here often as the food is fantastic! Drinks are done well also, worth the $ on spirits balanced with mixer, instead of watered down slush. Warmer months definitely sit on the patio, great cross-breeze and decent people-watching!

This place is amazing! I love you get a spicy and mild salsa to start out with your chips. The food is always amazing and the service is great!

First of all, the drinks are strong, but delicious. They don't get overpowered by the flavor/ smell of alcohol. The food is your standard Mexican chain restaurant food, but it's very good. The fresh chips and salsa are delicious as is the queso. I got one of the combo meal things, so got a huge taco and then a pretty... More

We enjoyed nice food and drinks. The service was great. Our table of 6 was very demanding but the server accommodated all pretty good with smile.

This restaurant has good service, decent "Americanized" Mexican food with many lunch options for a quick business lunch. They also have excellent options for special diets (such as delicious grilled vegetables and vegetarian rice instead of the rice and beans cooked with meat). The service is usually quick, efficient and friendly.

This may not be the truest, most authentically Mexican Type restaurant on the planet, but we always leave happy & satisfied. Our server yesterday was spectacular. We visited with our 3 grandsons, under 6. It's family friendly, kid friendly. Serves great drinks. Now if only I could figure out how to make their Queso Dip!

Last time I was there we went for our anniversary, the staff made it very memorable as they served us the most expensive item on the menu which was disgusting, tiny portioned and not as shown in the picture. I pointed this out to the manager and she even agreed. I use to love this place when it first opened... More

On the Border is not what it used to be. I have been there twice before with friends from work for lunch and I really liked the food. This time around was not so good. To start the service was lousy. We went there around 3:30/4:00pm and at that time the restaurant had very few people. We were seated and... More
