I came to this restaurant, thinking the good would be great.. Well it wasn't, considering tacos el norte is clearly better. Rice was undercooked, beans were too chunky and whole, while the wait was terrible. Do not come to this place.

My FAVORITE TexMex Restutant

I love the food at On the Border and the chips and salsa are my favorite. I don't think they claim to be authentic Mexican, which I don't like much anyway. The 'create your own combo' allows you to sample 2 or 3 different items. There is something for everyone!

I love this place

The best tex mex I've ever had. Service is top notch and affordable. Our server always had refills for my family and I and the guac is the best I've ever had. When I told my server I was on s diet, he recommended a few items and then brought gave me a nutrition facts sheet for the restaurant. Very nice! If your looking for a good place to go for great service and food go there

Food is okay, you are better to have just drinks.

Not what I call true Mexican food. More like Tex / Mex.

watch your bill?

Food is fair, but if you charge your meal to either credit or debit card please check it against your statment. They have altered my tip from $5.71 to $16.71. When I went back to ask management about it, he showed me the altered credit card statemet, which looked like it was forged by high school kid, and calmly aske if I had done that and initial it.



Once I told him that I did not do it, he just aske how I wanted it to be fixed? I wondered if he was for real since he people skill seemed to be at zero. No apology or question of how they could either forget that bill or give me a credit for a return visit (I don't think I will be eating there any more).



In today's economy you want to cater to your customer to make sure that he will return. this place gave me afeeling like they don't care and simply were trying to tell me that if you don't like us, go somewhere else.



I will.
