Loved their tacos and enchiladas. The chips and salsa was also very good. Drink selection was decent and overall experience was good.

We have been to this location many times and have had relatively good experiences. Today, however, we were disappointed -- mostly in the service. The food was not bad. Average for On The Border. Our server seemed distracted though. We asked for lemons for our water twice and never received any. Every time he did stop by our table it... More

After many visits to On the Border in a few different states and previously reviewing this as one we return to each time we travel to or through Woodbridge our hearts were broken.

Times must be tough at OTB. All the food was tasty, but the portion size was extremely disappointing. I had the Not So Ultimate Fajitas. The dish was delicious, but the portion was laughable to the point I actually complained to the manager who tried to make it right with an a little extra meat. That was a nice gesture.... More

I just finished eating lunch at On The Border in Lake Ridge, VA a short time ago, and I was impressed enough to write this review right away. The manager seated me and said they had the best chips and salsa around! He was right, and I know my chips and salsas! This is the best salsa I have had... More

We started out with a mumbling server. Mark seemed annoyed that he had to repeat himself. We got okay service but with an attitude that he was a machine and would service us only as much as he needed to. The other annoying thing he did was to keep walking back and forth beside our booth, just aimlessly sauntering by... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions for both dine in and carry out. The food has always been delicious and I have never had a complaint. I stopped in on New Years Eve for a carryout order and I ordered a bowl of their Queso. The waitress told me that their Manager no longer provides chips with the... More
