The grand opening will coincide with the start of the holiday shopping season so while you’re at the Ocean County Mall, grab a margarita (or two) as you check everyone off your gift list!

On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina has opened a new restaurant in Toms River. This will be its first Jersey Shore restaurant, located outside the Ocean County Mall at 1201 Hooper Avenue, near the Hooper Avenue mall entrance. Restaurant hours will be Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm & Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm. Known for its award-winning margaritas, house-made salsa, and sizzling mesquite-grilled fajitas, On The Border is THE spot for authentic Tex-Mex food.

“We look forward to celebrating our restaurant grand opening with everyone on November 14,” says Tim Ward, CEO of On The Border. “Opening at the Ocean County Mall, at the height of holiday shopping season, will give shoppers the perfect place to take a break from the holiday rush by enjoying bold Tex-Mex food, ice-cold drinks and a friendly atmosphere.”

On The Border has a Mesquite wood fire grill and offers signature menu items such as house made salsa and guacamole made fresh with unlimited complimentary chips made in house, wood fired sizzling fajitas, hand rolled enchiladas and burritos, tacos and Tex-Mex combo platters, plus margaritas and Tex-Mex cocktails.

The Toms River On The Border restaurant will mark the brand’s fifth location in New Jersey and is currently training over 100 team members to support the restaurant opening. For more, visit
