We have been patrons of OTB for years, and it is still our favorite restaurant for good Tex-Mex food. The food is always fresh, hot, and delicious!

Very helpful staff. I forgot my glasses and needed help reading the menu. Staff was very helpful in making selection. This restaurant is right out the door from the Springhill Suites hotel.

We were seated immediately as the restaurant was not busy. Our server was delightful and gave us the appropriate amount of attention. Food was delivered quickly. Maybe too quickly, we both ordered different style enchiladas and each plate wasn't hot enough. The plates were warm...More
