On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina is making more bold and exciting improvements to the brand by introducing a long list of crave-worthy menu items including appetizers, tacos, tortas, burgers and desserts.

Starting today, the world’s largest Mexican casual dining brand is revamping fan-favorites like its Tortilla Soup with even bolder flavors and is taking its iconic sauces to the next level, including green chili, sour cream sauce and spicy avocado ranch. On The Border is even amping up its fajitas with more steak on the sizzling plate and offering tasty add-ons like a mesquite-grilled shrimp skewer.

On The Border will also bring back guest favorites like Chipotle Ribs, which were served when the brand first opened its doors. Plus, On The Border is introducing 10 new hand-crafted Tex-Mex cocktails to the menu including an ultra-premium Diamante Margarita with Maestro Doble Diamante Tequila, Ranch Water and Maker’s ‘Rita.

On The Border aficionados can start their authentic Tex-Mex dining experience with the brand’s new Honey Chipotle Shrimp Appetizer and top it all off with the new Tres Leches Cake. Of course, On The Border didn’t stop there. The brand has introduced over 20 new menu items this last year, including the following that launch next week:

  • Smokehouse Fajitas – Texas-sized fajita platter with chipotle ribs, jalapeño sausage, braised carnitas and shredded beef brisket with honey chipotle and jalapeño-BBQ sauces on the side, topped with a grilled jalapeño
