We had dinner on Tuesday night for my family of 5. Went in around 8:30pm. The place was empty. Three other people were in the restaurant. It took 5min for them to seat us and three waiters walked by and smiled before we ever got a seat. It took 20min for the waitress to get us water and then another... More

Went here and had a very nice meal that tasted great. The service was very friendly and helpful, just a little slow. That's the only thing that kept me from giving this a 5 star. I would still come back.

Went there for inside dining with a colleague this evening. Food/beverage were good and service was competent but slower than it should have been with a lightly populated dinner crowd. As we were finishing dinner, a panhandler woman and her alleged young granddaughter appeared at our table to interrupt us and tell some story about how the granddaughter needed something... More

On the Border is a Traditional Mexican restaurant. Traditional? Wait¡¡ It is the best in town. I love the platter combinations, you know Tacos, Quesadillas, rice, beans and beef. that is always great. However, the Tortilla Chip are amazing, with an incredible spicy sauce. The chips are made on site, immediately you place your order they start doing the chips¡¡... More

I like this On the Border location. It's located in a nice area not far from Lenox mall. The food here is pretty good, what I'd expect and they have good margarita prices. The service is usually prompt and they have good outdoor seating. Great place for happy hour.

The food was the expected On the Border deliciousness, but seriously our waiter couldn't possibly have been less interested in us. Didn't make eye contact even while we were ordering. Didn't check on us often. Kinda threw a wet blanket on our New Years Eve.

I'm giving a so-so review, I'm sure some of the other food on the menu was good. Unfortunately I ordered Carne asada with grilled veggie and I guess their version of Mexican Rice. The steak was tuff, the rice wasn't cooked all the way it had more than just a bite and it was dry, veggies were a bit greasy.... More
