On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina, located at 45 Middle Ave, Holtsville which is seven minutes from your Alston apartment, is a casual restaurant chain featuring Tex-Mex standards such as fajitas, burritos and grilled meats.

In October of 1982, the first On The Border opened in Dallas, Texas and quickly became the hot spot for great margaritas, fresh Border-style food and seriously good times in Dallas. With business booming, the three friends decided it was time to share On The Border with more people, including with their location near your Alston apartment.
