Brunch with family style is the way to go. Plenty of food, not too long of pauses in between courses an if you love something they will bring more. Fantastic experience!

My husband and I came for brunch on my birthday and it was so amazing!! I wish we would have had a chance to try all the items, but we were way to full. Also, I recommend getting the unlimited mimosas. They a bring a bottle to your table along with orange, peach (my favorite), blood orange and I believe passion fruit (I could be wrong on that one). All in all, I always love to try something new each time I go to Vegas, but I will definitely be back for brunch. Also, the service was phenomenal which just made everything better!!

The Border Grill is one of my favorite mexican restaurants anywhere and the Border Brunch is a treat! I love the small plates format and we enjoy almost everything we have tried.

At the Border Brunch the Bacon Jalepeno PBJ Biscuit is a thing! If you like Chorizo the Pigs in a Croissant nails it combining pastry, a perfect sauce on top and chorizo that is just right not too spicy but full of flavor. The mimosa's are not your run of the mill with OJ but feature four different puree's including classioc orange, blood orange, prickly pear that you can mix yourself. They leave the champagne bottle no scrimping on bottomless mimosa's.

You won't regret going out of the way to try Border Grill!

This restaurant just keeps getting better. We've been celebrating our daughter's birthdays and other special occasions here for more than 10 years. As local Las Vegans, we have many outstanding choices for dining. But very few restaurants who can capture the cuisine of Mexico. My daughter began her culinary journey with simple cheese quesadillas as a 10-year-old. LOL. But they are so good she demanded them every year. Now, 10 years later, we ordered a wide variety of terrific dishes for her to sample...the Pescado Veracruzano, Shrimp and Scallops a la Plancha, Chicken Poblano Enchiladas, Duck Carnitas, Charred Broccolini, and Carmelized Plaintains!! Everything was exceptional.

Great food and service—waiter recommendations were excellent. We had the chicken enchiladas and the skirt steak—both were delicious. Margaritas were made in house. We sat outside overlooking the pool. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

The food is too fussy - too many ingredients. The wait staff was nice, but grouped every table together so the noise level was high. Plenty of room to spread out and let each table eat in peace . No need to squeeze everyone in 1 small quadrant. Way overpriced for what you get. The special dessert was terrible along with the lobster tacos. The rice pudding was great.

The food was absolutely perfect. Flavor on the skirt steak was mouth watering and even the side of rice and beans were just right, hot and tasty. The house-made salsa trio when we first arrived was spot on also. Our server was attentive and pleasant. She was prompt and helpful. We were surprised after our meal with a refreshing pair of mango and pineapple sorbets compliments of the house( I worked with Mary Sue and Susan years ago) this was our second visit to this particular location and each visit surpasses the previous meal. Loved It!

We had an amazing Sunday brunch here. Unlimited small plates - all beautiful and delicious - and we added the unlimited bloody marys and mimosas! The bloodys were great - spicy and unique - and for the mimosas, they brought out multiple flavors of juice and entire bottles of champagne! Our server Luis and the rest of the staff was amazing, 100% attentive and helpful. We sat on the outside patio and enjoyed gorgeous 70 degree weather and fresh air. This is by far my favorite way to do brunch in Vegas!

Service was great and food was okay. Great concept of the small plates to try multiple items. However the champagne was awful...! We each paid for bottomless mimosas and struggled to finish one bottle due to the taste. We were seated on patio next to door and everytime a server opened the door it created a draft so had 2 hours of a revolving cold breeze and peoples menus flying up.

Great kids menu. I really enjoyed the chips and salsa. The guacamole was excellent! The fish used for my fish taco had a very strong fishy taste. I would have preferred having a lighter less fishy tasting fish. Other than that I would recommend this restaurant.

A few days in Vegas...trolling for a nice, not crazy expensive dinner before the Cirque d Soleil Michael Jackson show (outstanding!)...found good reviews on Trip Advisor for the Border Grill at Mandalay Bay so we booked it. It’s a trek to the back of the complex where the restaurant sits but the margarita, more fancily named beef tenderloin fajita and guacamole, provided by an excellent wait staff, were all a treat. We’d go back and would recommend it to others.
