Diner Reviews
  • "Loved the quality of the food, and drinks. I had the brisket taquitos and they were covered in a creme, guacamole and slaw, which made them soggy. The ends were spared so we did enjoy the crunch there and the brisket was AWESOME, but it was disappointing that all of that wasn't just on the side. Similar issues on the tacos. Finally the guacamole was fresh and bright, but it was frustrating that in the menu description it did not state onions were in the guacamole when there was a very intense opinion taste and a plethora in the guacamole, frankly hard to avoid. It wasn't a deterrent for most at the table, but it was for me."

  • "I have dined at Border Grill L.A. since the week they opened and have always been completely satisfied with the food and service. Is it difficult to find the proper help in Las Vegas? We had to ask several times for everything (ice, more water, chips, salsa etc. We gave up and stopped asking. It was a complete disappointment."

  • "Recommend lunch, not dinner. Was attending trade show, location convenient. Both lunches flavorful, promptly served although busy. Went for dinner my last night, I studied the menu on line, but was told the items I wanted to order were lunch menu only. Waiter suggested 2 entree specials (specials change weekly). I told him this was my 3rd meal there in 2 days. I ordered the beef. Steak sliced over rice mixed w/corn & red peppers-non descript. Steak VERY tough. When waiter returned after a few bites I told him the beef was impossible to chew. He said "sorry, i won't recommend it." He didn't ask if I wanted something different, said he would take 15% off. Disappointed. Skip dinner, do lunch. Deafening inside. Super hot outside."

  • "I come here every year for lunch when I go to a trade show in the hotel. I can't wait. It's one of my favorite restaurants in the hotel. The food is clean and service is great. Only thing I don't like is the chips are fried. That doesn't seem necessary. Baked is better."

  • "Love the food at Border Grill! Their Sat. & Sun. brunch is so worth the price! Plus for $10 more, bottomless mimosa's! Can't go wrong! We left both full and satisfied! Plus their fruit filled empanada's are amazing! And our waitress even packed some up for us to take. I will definitely be returning again...and again!"

  • "I wasn't all that impressed. Food was so-so. The $9.50 guac appetizer wasn't worth the money."

  • "Brunch was fantastic! All you can eat small plates. Maybe.....just maybe.....a tad pricey but excellent food and our server even accommodated us by adding a lunch item (they were serving lunch at the same time anyway) to our brunch. HIGHLY recommend! You will NOT go away hungry or dissatisfied!"

  • "Unfortunately we were in a rush because we had trouble getting to the hotel, and we had tickets for the Michael Jackson show so we had to rush. We would most assuredly go back because the food was exceptional (and I do not usually like Mexican style food) and the service was the best that we experienced in Vegas on this trip. We told the waitress that we were pressed for time and our food was delivered in record time. Over all it was a very excellent experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food was incredible...skirt steak tacos (gluten free!) were some of the best I have ever eaten. Quesadilla was fabulous and warm chips were a bonus! Very loud atmosphere...reservations are a MUST especially because it is in Convention Center area."

  • "We visited for brunch and were lucky enough to sit on the beautiful patio overlooking the giant pool/beach area. Delightful! The brunch is all you can eat from a variety of items - we added bottomless mimosas which were delicious - flavors included watermelon, hibiscus, lemon, orange and mango - excellent! Our server was very nice and also attentive - she was fast and efficient on refilling drinks and bringing more brunch items. The food was tasty but all food came out lukewarm to cold. We complained and they were attentive but food was basically still very cool until almost the end of our meal. Recommendations for brunch are: Smoked Salmon Sliders, Johnny Cakes, Machaca Chiliquiles and the Churro Tots - - - we will try it again!"

  • "Wonderful, creative food. We enjoy eating here when we are in Vegas. It's unfortunate that it's at the far end of the Strip. but it's worth the trip."

  • "Great outdoor seating overlooking the lazy river. Delicious guacamole, steak salad was perfect on a hot day. So many interesting drink concoctions with and without alcohol! Will definitely be back, especially for dinner since that is the only time they apparently have mole sauce!"

  • "This was our second time to dine at this restaurant. The first time was amazing so we were so excited to return for brunch. When we arrived we were seated in a room down stairs that was out of the way, not the main dining room on the first floor. After we were sat it took about 15 minutes for our server to arrive. We promptly ordered our first round of drinks and food. Almost 1 hour passed and our server came back by to ask us how the food was thus far, problem was we had not gotten any of it yet just a couple of slices of bread. A few minutes later the food came out and it was all ice cold! At this point we had been there an hour and all we had was 2 pieces of breakfast bread and some cold food. I do not recommend this brunch."

  • "The brunch was excellent we tried 90 percent of the items on the brunch list. The small plates Were beautifully sized and the food was amazing. There was literally nothing from the menu we didn't love. I am a foodie and can honestly say this was one of the most delicious meals we had in Las Vegas."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My friend and I hit up Border Grill Las Vegas before we got on our flights home to LA. I had looked up several brunch spots on the strip and this one won us over due to its low price and all you can eat small plates. We ended up having a great waitress and the food was fantastic and fast. We left an "all you can eat" area not feeling overly full and I will be recommending this spot to any of my friends who are in the Vegas area."

  • "Went here late after arriving at the hotel. It took a little while to see a server once we were seated, but after that, the server was very attentive. We enjoyed the chips and variety of salsa. My wife loved her short ribs enchiladas. I had the fish tacos, two deep fried and one grilled. The deep fried ones were amazing. The grilled one was well cooked, but lacked flavor. Overall, it was a good experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I was just disappointed in the food flavors and quality overall. The Enchiladas had no flavor and the steak quesadillas were over cooked."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We made reservations here because we had not been able to find a decent Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. We thought the Border Grill has to be good. It was mediocre at best. Brown, plastic table clothes; tables right next to outdoor storage. Tortillas seemed to be made out of store bought pie dough. But the Margarita were the worst! We wanted to send them back but didn't want to make a fuss in front of our grandchildren. We will never go here again."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We've always really enjoyed our trips to Border Grill at the Mandalay Bay Casino. Their Mexican food is legitimately great. Inventive dishes and attentive service. My only complaint this trip is that, even though we had a reservation, Border Grill was only willing to seat our party of 5 outside in the 100° heat. It was absolutely brutal out there. Lest this happen to you, let me recommend you eat at Burger Bar if you're visiting Mandalay in the summer."

  • "I have only eaten brunch at Border Grill. Tons of selections, all delicious. I love the option of adding unlimited Mimosas. Will come back again."

  • "The downstairs and outdoor patio looked cool, but it was closed when I dined for dinner. Food was nothing exciting. I'd seen advertisements for the cookbook that said Hot Tamales and I thought they actually had Tamales on the menu. My mistake, they had something called a tamale, which was more like corn pudding (southern style) wrapped up nicely in a corn husk. My 2 yr liked it! My fish tacos were over cooked. I actually had to leave the restaurant and go down stairs in to a ballroom to use the bathroom. Ugh. The elevator was broken in the restaurant and I entered from the pool level at Mandalay Bay so I ended up carrying my stroller up the stairs. The wait staff was really nice but I wouldn't dine again here."

  • "We loved the food. Fresh and very tasty. The only drawback was the margarita; very expensive for the small size."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Food was average. Waiter recommended a margarita with jalapeño to one in our group and it was so hot it made our lips go numb. We got seated on the patio and it was 100 degrees in the shade. Waiter took 25 minutes to bring our check as we sat and sweat"

  • "I made a mistake on the Open table reservation and the host graciously accomodated our larger party. Our server was very nice. The guacamole was excellent. Fresh and flavorful. However, overall, the meal was average and overpriced. I had grilled fish tacos that were fresh but bland (no) flavor. Another guest had kobe beef tacos that she described texture as slimy. Not sure what that means but not appetizing. Another guest had short rib special and said it was delicious. The pork was delicious as well."

  • "I love the food at Border Grill and in past visits we have had great service as well. But this time the service was terrible. We arrived on time for our reservation and were quickly seated, but then no one visited our table for over 10 minutes (no water, no chips, no server). Once our server arrived we immediately ordered some Guac, which is great, but the Guac was delivered after our main courses came out and the chips were mostly gone. My drink was gone halfway through my meal and not refilled until after my meal was gone. Very slow and unapologetic service."

  • "My husband and I had been to a few other restaurants on prior days. We were worried because our food experience so far had been disappointing. But then there was Border Grill ..it was AWESOME. Best Carnitas and those sweet corn tamales made this Southern gal proud.Highly recommend this place!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I was disappointed. Our first table was broken, the top was not properly attached to the base and it rocked. We asked to move. The food was cold and while most items were good, the temp of the food took away a great dining experience. We had to ask for coffee refills each time, I was surprised and disappointed with my overall experience."

The food and service were top notch while being reasonably priced. Love the watermelon-jalapeno margarita and the guacamole is to die for. Next time in Vegas we will be back for sure!"

I had the Tecate Carnitas. I would like them buy the gallon next time. Seriously. I also had the corn tamales which i would eat by the dozen. I always have an amazing dinner here, it's not to be missed."
