The service was slow and the food was room temperature when it was finally brought to us almost an hour after we ordered it. We didn't bother sending it back because we had already been there long enough as it was.


Never again

The first time I went, I went with a group of friends, and we all ordered something with chicken except for one who doesn't like chicken. Everyone that ordered the chicken got food poisoning within the next day or two.

The second time I went there (not by my choice) I ordered something with beef and my girlfriend ordered something with chicken.

She got food poisoning.

Don't waste your money!


not authentic

if you know real Mexican food then this is not your place. I've only been there twice and the second time was not by choice. Their food is obviously frozen. The appetizers and drinks are okay, but I will say that Senior Jaimes has way better margaritas and they are family owned and operated which is always a plus.


Good food & atmosphere

This On The Border restaurant is right on SPID. Traffic in this area is usually heavy so be careful. The food here is really good. They bring you chips and salsa. I had the enchilada with rice and beans which were very good.
