We went to On the Border with some friends and got a table right away, which was expected for a Monday night, but soon after, the place got packed. Much to our surprise, service didn't suffer at all.

The chips that were brought to the table were great, crispy and salty, and the salsa was equally as good. We devoured them pretty quick, and had to hold ourselves back from finishing the second batch or we would've spoiled the rest of our meal!

For entrees we ordered the Enchiladas Suizas filled with chicken tinga and cheese and the Classic Chimichangas with ground beef. Both meals came with a side of rice and choice of beans. All the food was delicious and filling, and you can tell the tortillas were homemade--something we didn't know On the Border did until we were seated by the tortilla station. A woman was there the whole night pressing them, which was a nice touch for a chain restaurant.

For dessert, we ordered Sopapillas, which are like flatter mexican zeppoles covered in cinnamon sugar and served with honey and chocolate dipping sauces. They were delicious, but dry, so they really do need to be dipped!

Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I know there's plenty of non-chains to go to but in my opinion, On the Border is just as good, and more laid back. If you're looking for good Tex-Mex at a decent price, you should definitely give it a try!
