Did not like the open chile relleno with the vegies and the cheese of the other Chile was very salty. I think the cheese chile relleno should have Jack Cheese.. The enchiladas poblanos were ok, I have had better. Although we earlier that day and had ceviche and that was delicious.

Food was amazing. We had the tapas style small brunch plates and everything was SO good. Louis was our server, and he had a fresh round of (bottomless) mimosas ready for us as soon we we were done with the prior round. He was extremely friendly, had great recommendations and was a wonderful server. Highly recommend the brunch, drinks and our server! Couldn’t have asked for a better brunch.

The only spot I go to Vegas for brunch! Love the small plates. You can actually get one of each item and not feel so stuffed. Will be back soon

I have been here previously, and loved it. It was as good as before. Great service, great food. Everyone in my party loved it. The chips and three kinds of salsa, were the best I ever had. The restau sent over a appetizer on the house which was a class act. Then I had Skirt Steak, which was also excelllent. Can’t wait to go back.

I was impressed with the menus offerings and how the staff handled the hustle and bustle. The only suggestion I would have is that the person passing around the chips and salsa, provide the diner with a silverware roll up and small plate if there is none on the table. Otherwise it gets messy. Ryan was amazing once things slowed down. He was slammed! But I could empathize. I was just so hungry when I arrived. It was along walk from the strip.

Unlimited brunch small plates is unbeatable. We’ve referred people multiple times and will continue to do so.

We went for a birthday. Vegan options are limited but very good. Our waiter Luis was also very good! A little disappointed they didn't have anything special for the birthday girl, it was her 40th.

I went to get a nice lunch with some girlfriends for 4th of July and I wanted to take them somewhere new that they’ve never been, they said it was above and beyond their expectations! The food was delicious!! But more importantly the guest service we received, Ciara made sure we felt welcomed and not only asked how we were, but other guest around us. She was very hands on, friendly and next time I come, although she was not our server I would love to be seated wherever she’s working!! We really enjoyed our time and will be back soon for brunch! Thanks again Ciara and Border grill!

The food was absolutely amazing! Our waiter recommended the tapas menu, so we got to try a little bit of everything. It was only $55 per person and the food exceeded our expectations. By far the best meal we’ve ever had here in Vegas! Highly recommend the strip steak!

Great food and friendly attentive staff. The homemade chips were addictive and the skirt steak was the best I’ve ever had. Be sure to glance at the menu before you go. There are very few entrees that resemble traditional Mexican food. It’s not a destination for picky eaters.

It’s a Mexican restaurant in a casino. Don’t expect a Michelin star restaurant. But it was decent. Server was fantastic.

We love this place and as Locals visit at least 3-4 times a year if not more should we have visitors. Only reason this visit not 5 stars is they advertise as being part of Restaurant Week but did not offer menu, disappointing. All the rest as usual amazing!

The food was great as always. We go here a lot. My only concern is that they advertised the Sunday brunch to last until 3 pm and when we arrived for our 215pm reservation, they said they cut off the brunch food at 230 pm. So we had to rush through the brunch to get our food. The waiter was very helpful and rushed our order back, but they need to be more clear when they say the brunch ends at 3 that they really mean 230 p.m.

Very strange - food products actually in the water glass. We noticed un-used dishes, silverware and water glasses moved from one table to the next... clean, yes, maybe? But still seemed lazy and not professional. And the the worse - perhaps - was my drinking glass and water glass was sticky on the outside? Ewww ...
