Terrible is, it is gone. It is being replaced by a Brazilian Restaurant. Maybe replace is not a good word - Brazilian Restaurants are generally amazing, but quite expensive if you go beyond the salad bar and get the never ending meat. The date listed...More

I went to an On the Border several years ago and found the place lacking in anything interesting (sight, sound, smell, taste). All these years later it hasn't changed. It's like a Mexican version of Olive Garden, only worse. Since nothing seemed to have any...More

We eat here fairly often and have never been disappointed. They have taco Tuesday so if you are going get there early to get a table. The regular menu has a nice variety....all the typical items and a few non-typical. Friendly and accommodating staff.

If you like the food at Chili's, you may find this restaurant appealing. Otherwise, like most chain restaurants, it's mediocre fare and large portions of it. I ordered the cheese enchilada combo and the sauce was just a little better than ketchup. I didn't care...More

I'll admit that while I like "real" Mexican food at restaurants run by people who only speak Spanish, I also have a place in my heart (and stomach) for the less-than-genuine article. On the Border is good for Texas BBQ tanginess mixed with Mexican cuisine....More
