When you're 3 hours away from the actual Mexican border, "On the Border" is probably not the best choice for Mexican food. The all-you-can-eat enchilada Monday special drew us in, but it wasn't really about all you COULD eat but rather all you actually wanted to - which wasn't much. The chicken was tasteless. From the white sauce to the... More

Cheese crisp, tortilla soup, enchiladas were great. So was the margaritas we ordered. Waiter and bartender were great with explaining the specials when their happy hour started and what the happy hour drink specials were

I really can't recommend this place. The food is fair and I ordered a bloody mary. It was just tomato juice????? The bartender came over and apologized he said that is how they tell them to make it. WHAT????????? He made me a doctored up one but it was still bad. Pass on this.

My Fajitas were barely warm - as the plate easy not sizzling when it came. Onions and peppers were undercooked (not carmelized). Service was mediocre. Not going back again!!!!

Well, what can I say this restaurant is not great. The service and prices were fine but the food quality was poor. I order fajitas and everything on the plate tasted the same. The tortilla were way too thick and tasted raw. I'll not be going back.

For a chain restaurant On The Border serves very good Mexican food and Margaritas. Clean and good service. Much better than many small Mexican restaurants. We often stop by for Margaritas and their Sampler Plate. Once when we stopped there for an anniversary dinner and a couple of things did not go just right the manager comped our entire meal.

Today myself and my spouse visited this location and the food was surprisingly... TERRIBLE!! My order of Fajitas was missing the flour tortillas, the beans were very watery with scattered whole beans and no cheese. They were like a soup consistency. This turned my stomach! The veggies (green, red peppers, and onions )had a weird look to them. They appeared... More

Server was slow and ?unfriendly? over all. Few smiles. Order incorrect. Food was average. Nothing outstanding. Will go elsewhere next time.

If you are in Peoria on Bell Road, right off the 101, and you are craving Mexican food, please stop here and eat and have a very good and tasty Margarita. The waitress and waiters are on the ball and come over to your table to make sure you have enough chips, salsa and refill your water and tea without... More

We had a very enjoyable experience with a large party dinner. The service was exceptional, and we were served in a very timely manner. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered and the waitress was always there to refill drinks and to ask if anyone needed anything else. Great experience
