I typically do enjoy On The Border when we want something mainstream and reliable; the Topeka location was disappointing though. The entire restaurant smelled like raw sewage and it was not clean. Service was very slow, although our server was polite. Food was good, what I would expect from OTB. Definitely needs better management.

We eat there frequently & last weekend I ordered the DosXX fish tacos. Waitress said she thought they were out of beer battered fish. A manger was standing nearby & overheard her & told me that he thinks they still have some and to go ahead and order it. I said ok then. I did. When our food came, I had "grilled" fish taco's and not the DosXX ones plus I got black beans instead of the refried ones I ordered. I told the waitress this isn't what I ordered & just then the manager comes back out & see's that the order wasn't right. It wasn't my waitress's fault. She TOLD me they were out, so I ordered the La Bandera. By the time I got my plate, my girlfrinds dinner was over half finished. So to make it better to me. Our dinner was free that evening & he gave us 2 more free dinners for the next time we came in. I gave the waitress an $8 tip for being good about it all & feeling sorry that my order got screwed up. Actually I went in there in the first place thinking they still had the all you can eat taco special going on & it was over with. It is still a good place to go eat & relax over dinner. I think they did a good deed for messing up my dining experience for that particular evening & I really didn't mind the extra wait......someone else mighta screamed at them, but I am not that way. My experience with them was good. AND on another occassion 2-3 years ago there, we had just placed an order when a big thunderstorm came thru one evening & knocked out the power. The power was off for like 30+ minutes. It wasn't crowded that night anyway & the manager then came to us & gave us like 7-8 empanada coupons and 3-4 free con queso coupons for our inconvenience due to the thunderstorm. All I have to say is that the Topeka "On the Border" does good by it's customers.......for ME at least. :)

This is a chain restaurant perfectly fitting for any mindless american who requires nothing in the way of flavor or atmosphere. It resides on the border of disgusting and cheesy. (not queso cheesy either).

If you want good Mexican food northeast Kansas isn't the best area in the world. Your best bet is On The Border in Topeka when it comes to good Mexican food.
