On The Border’s History

The first On The Border was opened in Dallas, Texas in 1982 by three friends who wanted to open up a spot with great margaritas and authentic border style Mexican cuisine. The restaurant was a great local success and the restaurant soon expanded to other locations in the region.

The chain was sold to Brinker International in 2009, who sold it in 2010 to Golden Gate Capital, Inc. Argonna Capital Group purchased the chain in 2014.

As of 2016 there are 160 locations in the United States as well as various locations in several other nations including Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.
