  • Queso Steak Torta – Fajita steak with Mexican white cheese, pico de gallo, lime chimichurri and On The Border’s signature queso in a toasted bolillo roll, served with fries.
  • Cheesy Queso Enchiladas – Two cheese enchiladas topped with On The Border’s signature queso and pico de gallo, served with Mexican rice and choice of beans.

To add to the bold lineup, queso lovers can enjoy a melted helping of queso on any meal. All they have to do is ask On The Border for a $1 Queso ‘Pour’ Favor!

And what’s a delicious Mexican dish without a margarita to complement it? Of course, each new Queso Fest item pairs perfectly with On The Border’s $5 Monthly Margarita roster. In January, guests can kick off Queso Fest with the Fiery Berry ‘Rita (featuring Fireball® Cinnamon Whiskey), followed by the 1800 Grande ‘Rita (with 1800 Silver Tequila) in February and the Lucky ‘Rita (including Midori Melon) in March. 

“It’s been a challenging time for our guests and our team members, so to be able to bring back our Queso fest and celebrate a new year and better days ahead with this fun and tasty menu is very exciting,” said Chief Marketing Officer Edithann Ramey. “Who better to introduce a full menu of queso-inspired items than On The Border? Our queso’s bold flavors is what we’re known for, so we used it as inspiration for some great new choices which then perfectly pair with one of our hand-shaken margs. Everything about our Queso fest will have you saying, ‘más queso, por favor!’”

Queso Fest items are available at all On The Border restaurants and for to-go. Even margaritas are available for to-go (at participating locations)!
