    Great, innovative menu. Servers rushed us to sit, to order drinks, and then dinner. Food was quick, but drinks were VERY slow. The food quality was good but not as extraordinary as we had hoped after seeing them on CBS. While finishing our second drink, to my horror, we were asked to vacate because a party of 20 was arriving. The manager said, "We were not allowed to stay for hours." Our reservation was at 6:45; now, 7:15 hardly constitutes "hours." He asked our neighbors to leave, too. We will never return. The manager was crafty to wait till we had paid and tipped.

    The food was excellent. Drinks were fair-we couldn't taste the difference between the Cadillac margarita and the Border margarita in a side-by-side. Service was adequate, but having the appetizers come out at the same time as the entree felt like they were rushing out the door. Recommend you order in stages-not all at once for a better paced meal-because your server won't pace your meal.

    Had the poblano burger and churro ice cream sandwich. They were amazing! The two let downs for the night, the fries on the menu said paprika, but they were just plain value brand fries, and for the second time in a week, their coffee machine was broken, tried to order one of their three premium coffees.

    Property appeared old and service was mediocre. Cadillac Margarita was watered down and was $17.00. Border Grill charged $5.00 for chips and salsa, and entrees were a la carte. Would not have minded if ambiance, service and quality of food and drinks were worth it. Would not recommend.

    I hadn’t thought that I would need to consider we could be seated in what felt like a basement back room. We were sat in the back, downstairs in a random room painted (several years ago) aggressive burnt orange, looking out across the hallway at the empty tables near windows. Food was good and server was too but when you are seated in a place that you didn’t even think could be an option it’s frustrating. We almost left except Vegas is a mess to navigate a new restaurant last minute so we just sucked it up.

    We sat downstairs for the unlimited small plates brunch. It was definitely quieter where we sat and it was refreshing to have a view of the sky while sitting indoors. Our server Jose was very attentive, the whole team was excellent in making sure our table was never without food or drinks. The only con was their espresso machine wasn’t working that day, so instead of the lattes we originally wanted we opted for coffee, which turned out to be sour and pale. Still we highly recommend Border Grill!
