Service was very good. The food is excellent. They are usually very busy so you may have to wait for a short time to get in, but it is worth it. The restaurant is small and rather cozy. You won't be disappointed dining here. We will return and will recommend it to our friends.

This is a great restaurant with good food and great service. This is one of our favorite On the Border Restaurants in the DFW area. The restaurant is always clean, the service is top notch, and the food is delicious.

This place is busy, the food here is great and service is fast. It was a little warm, but I think it was me. It is pretty easy to get in and out of the parking lot

I like this OTB. Piece of advise : avoid peak days / hours. ( e.g. Friday evening ). The place is nice but is better to dine in when they are not so busy : you get to choose your table and service and food are better. Overall a good experience, would recommend. My favorite : 2 chicken tinga enchiladas... More

My wife loves this place. The cheese enchiladas are her favorite as I am a fajitas lover. The servers are very friendly. We go there about three times a month. Several of the staff even no what we like.

After eating an endless number of On-the-Border tortilla chips bought at Sam's Club (and liking them), I finally got a chance to see what the place was all about. Like the chips at Sam's, it was pretty darn good. The friendly staff is quick with a drink and menu; shortly I was looking at a delicious chicken fajita quesadilla that... More

After a long day at UT Arlington for Special Olympics Summer Games. Ordered to go fajitas. Great food, tortillas and guacamole was fresh! Salsa good too.

Monthly meetup for drinks and food. 14 of us today. Always a very friendly staff, good margaritas and Mexican food. Some go for the night specials which on Tuesdays is tacos. We went for enchiladas. The Bandera has three enchaladas, beans and rice. Very filling and you get three different enchaladas each with a different sauce. Very good value for... More

I placed a large order (to go) for 14 people for beef and chicken fajitas. For the amount of money I paid for this order, I received an amount suitable for about 10 people. I had waited long enough in the bar for this order and found out only when I got home to my party. I certainly wasn't going... More

If you are looking for consistently good food and service, the Bedford On the Border is a very good option. Great chips and salsa, nachos, enchiladas, fajitas, all good. Fast friendly service makes this a good option.
