    If you are going to offer an all you can eat brunch, you should not have patrons waiting 20min between courses. The food needs to come out quicker. Also, The food was never hot. It always came out room temperature which means it was sitting out for a while before being served. They need to raise their game.

    Everything was amazing! Honestly one of my favorite restaurants I’ve ever been to, their menu features real Latin flavors and food and is not whitewashed like other similar restaurants tend to be. Their prices may look expensive but it was worth every penny, not overinflated. The server was very nice and we will definitely be back! Try the seafood molcajete!

    We made a reservation for an outside table and were seated 5 minutes before our reservation. We were greeted by our server Ernesto promptly and were very impressed by his friendliness and knowledge about the menu. We started with the guacamole and ordered skirt steak and Yukatan pork based off his recommendation and they were great. The portions were largeer than we expected. Highly recommend this for families.

    My son had the rib-eye special. It was amazing according to him. He generously shared a bite and it was indeed amazing. The tuna ceviche was incredible. A nice sized portion that could easily have been a meal. The guacamole was fresh and the chips were still warm and very good. We will be back out next visit to Vegas.

    Food was good as always, but server was lackadaisical and uncaring, unlike last time when a different server was fantastic. She was slow and inattentive and at the end was trying to rush us out the door. The server “cheapened” the experience, making the food seem overpriced this time. Will not be going back and will stop recommending.

    We had the guacamole to start off. It was excellent. The house made chips? Spectacular. Three different salsas, awesome. Main dishes we had were smoked prime rib tacos. The meat was dry, overcooked but flavor was very good. Chicken enchiladas were very good. Short ribs were spectacular. Shrimp tacos were good. Over all? Very very good food.

    Great place, except for the price. With tax and tip, the three of us spent $190(!). And one of “us” was our 14-year-old son, so we’re not talking a lot of alcohol here — 3 drinks between my wife and I. The drinks are too expensive as are the entrees. Really enjoyed the meal — and our server was great — but will not return at these prices.

    The Staff may be the best I’ve ever experienced in Vegas. We told the Manager we were locals and had read their was s 15% discount on food. He proclaimed us VIP’s and offered a complimentary appetizer of sweet corn tamales that were unbelievably savory. Our server (from Mexico City) was so caring and also offered us complimentary chips and really awesome salsa selection. The menu offers so many yummy choices. Will definitely be back.

    The food was tasty and the atmosphere was nice. However, neither was overly exceptional. I ordered the Lomo Saltado and liked it but would probably try something different next time. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive so I would give her 5 stars. I would go back to the Border Grill if and when I am on the south end of the strip.

    The food came out so quickly. Even before our drinks. Great on the one hand but also felt a little like and assembly line. The chicken Enchiladas were excellent and I always love the plantains. I thought the pork in my tacos was a bit over cooked but they were still good. Beans/rice were nothing to write home about (hence assembly line comment). Not perfect But we’ll definitely return.
