Good food and wait staff. I try to go to these chain restaurants during off days or hours. The can get very busy and everything suffers. We went on a Saturday but we were early for dinner and there was no wait. The fajitas are very good and the Sampler will be a favorite of ours.

Our family is not into Mexican food but we decide to try this resturant and maybe enjoy some chips and salsa. The chips and Salsa are free and "refillable" as much as you got twice and we asked no more :) as we will not have place for the food. My husband took the bowel with the chicken that was... More

Went to this place on Xmas eve. People had jammed the shopping mall, so we had enough opportunity to get the hospitality of On the border. The spicy salsa to die for with warm nachos. We had tacos and burrito. NICE. Also splurged on mahi fish tacos. real tasty- topped it up with Sopadila's . and it was not much.... More

Been a long time since I've been to an On The Boarder but it's still just as good. I got the combo, 2 fish tacos, a chicken enchilada and a spinach enchilada, with a side of steamed vegetables and rice. A ton of good food for a good price. The service was also very good.

Eat there quite frequently. Lots on the menu, good special selections, and fresh food. Yes, it is chain restaurant Mexican food, but good! Some lower calorie, healthier dishes to choose from. Wait staff very good. Helpful, friendly, and they know the menu well. Was there during a power outage recently and the management walked around to see that everyone was... More

...for Mexican food after the movies. It was a Sunday afternoon so we had plenty of choices around the Garden State Mall area. The kids picked the place and we're glad they did. The dos XX tacos (2) were delicious, the steak fajitas were OK (meat was a little chewy) and the empanadas did not look greasy. Good service, OK... More
