The chicken and cheese Stuffed Jalapeños were amazing and the Chicken Tortilla Soup earns the soup award of the year! We also had great service with a friendly server. Their drink menu is fun, too!

Once in an while when we can't think of a better place to go, we stop at On the border. The. chips are hot and the tortilla soup is good. You won't get anything bad, but I can't say anything is outstanding either.
