I went there thinking fajitas and was greeted very fast. I was very happy with server and his ability to explain the specials. I decided to go with fajitas but when they came out they were so small in size and honestly not tasty. I was extremely disappointment with that but happy with overall service. I will not come back...

Stopped in my brothers for dinner. Service was terrible. Server couldn't remember anything, did not know the menu and screwed up several requests. Twice we saw her sitting and chatting with another table of customers before she took our order. Food was mediocre at best. Probably my last visit to an On The Border for a long time, and definitely... More

So I have been here many times and Heather might give me reason not to come back. Slow. Rude. Not my favorite. The water tasted like dirt today and she pretty much said tuff. This is Bedford water. Not the right response. No solutions. Food was so-so. But service is why we go out to eat.

This place is amazing. The food is amazing and I love how the queso already comes spicy. I've been to many other on the border locations before but this one by far is the best. Ask for Carlos because he is very helpful and caring of his customers who sit at his tables. I had the figitias and of course... More

Service was very good. The food is excellent. They are usually very busy so you may have to wait for a short time to get in, but it is worth it. The restaurant is small and rather cozy. You won't be disappointed dining here. We will return and will recommend it to our friends.

This is a great restaurant with good food and great service. This is one of our favorite On the Border Restaurants in the DFW area. The restaurant is always clean, the service is top notch, and the food is delicious.

This place is busy, the food here is great and service is fast. It was a little warm, but I think it was me. It is pretty easy to get in and out of the parking lot

I like this OTB. Piece of advise : avoid peak days / hours. ( e.g. Friday evening ). The place is nice but is better to dine in when they are not so busy : you get to choose your table and service and food are better. Overall a good experience, would recommend. My favorite : 2 chicken tinga enchiladas... More

My wife loves this place. The cheese enchiladas are her favorite as I am a fajitas lover. The servers are very friendly. We go there about three times a month. Several of the staff even no what we like.

After eating an endless number of On-the-Border tortilla chips bought at Sam's Club (and liking them), I finally got a chance to see what the place was all about. Like the chips at Sam's, it was pretty darn good. The friendly staff is quick with a drink and menu; shortly I was looking at a delicious chicken fajita quesadilla that... More
