This support group lists info on various chains, including On the Border. Not sure how current it is.

The Triumph Dining Guide lists gluten free items at chain restaurants. Of course, it is stillour responsibility to check, but it is a place to start. I have dined there twice since receiving my guide. Have also used it at another place I had been avoiding.

Recently got a gluten-free list from the corporate people at on the border. Today I got brave and tried their food. I ordered the fajitas (beef and chicken) no onions, no sour cream and corn tortillas (not put through the warmer). All items that were supposed to be safe. The waitress was WONDERFUL! She brought out my corn tortillas herself, so that the cooks wouldn't be confused by not warming them. When they brought out my fajitas with onions and sour cream and without chicken she took them back and they re-cooked my food. All the while with a smile on her face.

Ate the food, it was super. About 30 min after eating I got sick. I am so disapointed. I LOVED their food. Chalk it up to cross contamination.
