Considering how far we are from Mexico, there sure are a lot of Mexican restaurants in this area. This one has the typical tacos, enchiladas, and fajitas menu. The food is ok, the prices typical, and we were fortunate to have a very good waitress. So there are no complaints but there is also nothing special.

We stopped at the Border for lunch and were seated right away. Our server came right over bringing up chips and salsa - my favorite part. Our order was placed and within 20 minutes we had our lunches. The food was delicious, my chicken was tender and my husband's beef was cooked just the way he liked it. We've eaten... More

Hi, We went there for lunch at 12:10 and didn't get our lunch until 1:10 pm. The chips and salsa were good, lunch was okay, and service was poor as they were short handed- very disappointing!

While returning from doing errands on Sunday evening, we decided to get take-out for dinner from On the Border. That wasn’t a wise decision, for the reasons discussed herein. After the one person ahead of us had finished placing his take-out order, I asked for the vegetarian menu. Instead of giving me the menu, the cashier asked if anyone else... More

When the food finally arrived it wasn't... More
