It was great!
We loved everything about this place. The food, atmosphere and the people made this restuarant a great place to eat. We are looking forward to eating here again!
we visited the On The Border Restaurant for the first time and it was great.The fresh salsa was the best and the huge chips were not all oversalted,the food we ordered was ready quickly and very enjoyable;we will be going back again and again,not too pricey either;
On the Border has pretty good food. The service can be rather quick. One time I went there for lunch and I was out of there rather quick.
Average mexican food
The restaunt looks very nice and the service if above average, but I just was not impressed by On the Border in El Cajons Parkway Plaza. I drank a pina colada which tasted like pure alcohol, which can be ok sometimes, but not when I am expecting something with a little flavor in it. The nachos are very boring and have no salt, same goes for the salsa which has no spices in it (as it would seem). For the main couse, I have tried many entrees from here... none have impressed me thus far. None of the food here seems to have any authenticity,0 or flavor for that matter, in them. I wouldnt suggest going here if you are in the mood for mexican food, especially considering you are in San Diego and there are a thousand taco shops nearby with amazingly good food for dirt cheap. All you are paying for when you go to on the border is a nice environment and above average service, which is nice... but I am not sure if that alone makes for an 18 dollar plate.
My meal was below average. I was wishing I was at Taco Bell.
