Food is great! The best guacamole in Las Vegas. The Carne Asada Quesedilla is also fantastic. Border Grill is my go to lunch spot when at Mandalay Bay.

Love our Sunday brunches. Small plate fare. Lots to choose from. Hard to try everything.

The food is great and service was outstanding! The atmosphere is romantic and still yet perfect for a party of 6 celebrating a birthday!

The brunch is not a good idea. "UNLIMITED" small plates for a fixed (high) price. The problem is you're limited to two at a time, and the wait for each round was about 30 minutes. The food was good, but the overall experience was unpleasant. The waitress even forgot one person in our party's drink.

Authentic Mexican featuring a variety of regional cuisines. The chips were delivered with 3 delicious salsas. We tried the tamale and Yucatán pork entrees and both were incredible. Artistic, modern decor. Good Margarita. Attentive and friendly service. Note that this restaurant is one of the farthest from the casino- it is at the convention center entrance.
The only reason I’m giving a 4 for ambiance is the table adjacent to ours - a group of 4 then 6 really loud drunk people shouting the f bomb and other foul language, the restaurant didn’t choose to intervene and we didn’t complain.

The food was very fresh and with lots of flavor and salsa (3 types) we're all excellent. Service was very good and terrace patio has a nice view. Last but most important, the patron margarita was excellent!

The food is just so good. I tried the dishes from everyone in our party and everything was scrumptious. Hostess bar experience was a little subpar compared to the rest of the experience which is a shame because it's the first point of contact. But otherwise great meal, fast food delivery and good service.

Very nice hand made Mexican food. The guacamole is outstanding. The food in general is extremely good. Service is friendly and knowledge.

Vegas is horrible about hyping mediocre restaurants as high quality. Nice to find an average priced place with very high standards.

I love the modern twist of Mexican dishes here. The menu has a lot of familiar item, but everything is elevated. The brunch here is amazing and easily my favorite in the city. This time we selected from the lunch menu and we not disappointed with the quality.

The service was very good. From the hostess to the server, everyone had a good attitude. The drinks were average, but the mojito was sub-par. The food lacked flavor for the dish and left us disappointed. We sat on the patio and it seemed like many had a wobbly table, including us. Not a deal breaker but annoying.

We've been proud supporters, customers and friends of Border Grill for decades. Then, as now, Susan and Mary Sue were the most innovative chefs in Los Angeles and pioneered contemporary Mexican cuisine. We're delighted that the brand retains its outpost in Las Vegas. You can't go wrong with both veggie options and hanger steak at Border Grill, and I am know for consuming the three special salas by the mugful, if they let me. Cocktails are also first-rate and imaginative. Try the spicy mezcal margarita!

The chicken poblano enchiladas, were the best enchiladas I've ever had. The atmosphere was fun, vibrant, if slightly loud. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu, drink recommendations, and general information. The entire experience was a pleasure!

The food was decent but the service is terrible. Everything that was asked for took forever. Server didn’t even notice one of the people at our table was missing their order. We had to wait so long for it to come once we pointed it out. Save yourself and go elsewhere.

However, your hostess was absolutely rude to me during a business meeting, stating she was going to have to kick is out because she had a bigger party with reservations for the tables where we were sitting. The correct thing to do would've been to offer to move us ts another tablr, as we had reservations also and it wasn't our fault we were dating at that specific 6 top. Very bad for repeat business having rude employees.

It was nice however we where in the back room and there was a large group which was very loud, and the laughter blinded off the walls making hard to carry a conversation with screaming at your table.

Good place to get in Vegas for good food and fast accurate service. The music is loud, so go with the mind set that you won't have a deep meaningful conversation.

Thank you for making my Wifey’s Birthday a great time!

We had a wonderful Waiter, amazing cocktails and the food...My Wife had been before, and was already sold of this gem. But, for me. I can be a cynical eater, and the food experience was outstanding! Thank You!
