Everything Vegan at On The Border (Late-2021)

On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina Logo

On The Border has some great vegan options, and many locations even have their own Vegetarian/Vegan Menu which includes things like a Vegan Burrito and Fried Portabella Mushroom Tacos.

You can find Vegan items at most Mexican-food type places, but it’s quite rare to have a specific Vegetarian & Vegan Menu to choose items off of. Props to you On The Border, you’re keeping with the times!

So if you find yourself at On The Border don’t fret, you’ll be able to have a good meal there as a Vegan.

Vegan Entrees at On The Border:

  • Guacamole Quesadillas
  • Sweet Potato & Corn Flautas
  • Spicy Avocado Enchilada
  • Vegan Burrito
  • Fried Portabello Tacos
  • Portabello Mushroom & Vegetable Fajitas

To be very clear, not all locations will have all of the above options, and a few may not have any of these listed on the menu, as not all have a specific vegan menu. Some just have a Vegetarian Menu.

Anything off the Vegetarian menu should be able to be made Vegan if you specify you do not eat dairy and don’t want Sour Cream, Queso, Cheese, croutons (for salads), or any non-vegan sauces (check below for the vegan sauces). At most On The Borders they’ll substitute Portabello mushrooms for meats and Guacamole for Cheese, so you can really veganize almost anything on their menu.

Vegan Side Options at On The Border:

  • Corn & Flour Tortillas
  • Grilled Vegetables
  • Sautéed Vegetables
  • Cilantro Lime Rice
  • Black Beans (No Cheese)
  • Guacamole
  • Guacamole “Live”
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Chips (See Sauces Below)
As you can see, if you don’t want to veganize a regular menu option by asking for it without Cheese, Queso, Sour Cream, etc, then you can easily build your own meal asking just for some Sauteed or Grilled vegetables with tortillas and rice/beans.

  • Tomatillo Sauce (Red & Green)
  • Ranchero Salsa
  • Guajillo Sauce
  • Nortena Sauce
  • Smoked Chipotle Vinaigrette
  • Smoked Jalapeno Vinaigrette
  • Fat-Free Mango Citrus Vinaigrette
  • Citrus Garlic Sauce
These are of course free to get — so don’t feel shy, ask for a few.
