Not every member of our family loves Mexican food but we all love On the Border. The Mexican food is excellent but they offer sides like French Fries that my children love. There is something for everyone at OTB.

My wife and I just ate here on a very busy Friday night. Her California burrito and my southwest chicken tacos were excellent. Even with the crowd we still received attentive service. We'll be back

I take business Clinets from the Southwest here. They are right at home here and love the food. The Salsa is authentic and some of the best in the midwest
