On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina
260 Ranch Dr, Milpitas, CA 95035
Today, we started making our guacamole from scratch bright and early. Our Tortillas will be hand-pressed every hour. And, everything will be made in small batches. We will fire up our grill and smoke over mesquite wood and keep those embers glowing until our last customer leaves. Things are always done a little fresher on the border. It’s no different here. Welcome! Our story traces back nearly three decades to 1982, when the first On The Border restaurant opened on Knox Street in Dallas, TX. Originally based on sizzling fajitas, frosty margaritas, happy hour and a booming patio, OTB has evolved and expanded over time to include a variety of craveable dishes inspired by the cuisines of South Texas and Mexico.

I try to avoid chain restaurants if I can but it was late, it was raining, and we didn't want to drive around all over the place. By biggest complaint with On The Border was the service - we were seated promptly enough, but it took forever for the server to bring chips and salsa, and take our drink order. Once she delivered the food, we didn't see her until she brought the check. And honestly, would it really hurt to smile once in a while?? OTB's menu was extensive. I went for the fish tacos, and liked them alot. The beer-battered whitefish was fresh, hot and crispy. I couldn't finish all three of them. Big Bird didn't fare as well - compared to the fajitas he had last time, his chicken enchiladas were unimpressive, and he disliked the corn tortillas. All in all, OTB was ok. Not the best but definitely not the worst.
