We were so happy to see the Brunch menu available again. Trying almost everything on it we were not disappointed. It was even better than we remembered. Definitely something we recommend to others who are visiting Vegas.

Ate the weekend brunch. Ordered the small plate special where you could eat 13 different items. It was like a tasting menu. There was many outstanding items such as potato tacos, chilaquillas, ceviche, and steak n eggs. Service was great. We enjoyed the experience.

With the COVID 19 restrictions, lesser choices of food and slower service. Would still recommend the restaurant as a good morning lace to eat.

My dinner on Wednesday night was an culinary feast from start to finish! The flavors of each dish were spectacular and delicious! I had the pleasure of being able to try 15 small plates across the entire menu! It will be a treasured moment to say the least. I highly recommend the ceviche, the grilled skirt steak and vampiro shrimp tacos. The most memorable were the Yucatán pork, think cochinita pibil, and the carnitas will transport you to straight to Michoacán! Both were heavenly experiences with pork! Don’t wait! Go to border grill tonight!

We were a little disappointed by Border Grill. When they sat us, the table was dirty. One of our plates was dirty and one of our glasses was chipped. In these pandemic times cleanliness is important. The food and service was great but we will not be returning.

We got the unlimited tapa plates $45. Might be a bit pricey but the experience was great. Got to try everything on the menu except dessert. And then got more of the ones we did like. Service was outstanding.
Yes I would go there again and order the same unlimited tapa plates

Tasty, worth visiting for sure, the Carne asada, the salsa everything was delicious, the black were hard and besides coffee I didn’t see other options (besides alcohol) and a place like that should have maybe a bomb hot chocolate or something

Border grill has been our go to brunch spot every year for our yearly girls reunion. Unfortunately, this year our experience was terrible. Ben was our server and forgot to place our order multiple times and every time our order did make it to the table, items we ordered were missing. Our first round of tapas arrived in a timely manner, second round, felt like it took over 30 min. Unexceptionable! After that, everything just went downhill. We did voice our concerns to one of the managers -skinny, bald gentleman, whom didn't seem very willingly to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.

Service was great. Food exceptional. Came for brunch, all plates were well seasoned with nothing "toned down." Flavorful, full portions, and wonderful service. Well worth the price.

OMG!!!! This is my favorite restaurant. I have been there several times and never disappointed. The food is FABULOUS and I highly recommend the endless small plate buffet. There is not one complaint other than I was I could have eaten more. I wish there was one closer to home.

The bad thing is we started our meal before 1130 on a Sun and the floor under the table was covered with broken pieces of chips. There were not that many there and we had made a reservation.😐

The food and service was amazing! Sat outside which was enjoyable! Only frustration was the smokers whom walk the adjacent path/road. Obviously smoking is everywhere in Vegas, but don't love inhaling it while eating :( Would definitely dine here again!

Birthday Party dinner. Ernesto and crew gave excellent attention. Great suggestions on meals. Portions were more than adequate and pricing was very good, especially compared to other Las Vegas Strip restaurants. Excellent value.

We thought we would just have a nice Mexican dinner after a day at the Mandalay Bay Beach but this was so much more. Brisket Barbacoa was phenomenal, carnitas, fish tacos and carne asada quesadilla were equally good.

Highly recommend eating here!
