Border Grill was a great spot for my business lunch. The staff was great and welcoming. The wait wasn't too long and our food was amazing. If you can take advantage of outdoor seating ... do it!!

Everything we ate was sublime! Moljacate, short rib, guac, churros, chips all wonderful! The star of the show surprisingly was the broccolini, you MUST try it! We’ve already recommended this place to others and it will have a permanent spot in our Vegas rotation.

Every dish was delicious. Well thought out and full of flavor. They catered to our need to change a dish or two to our liking and were graceful about it.
Everyone was friendly and we are looking forward to another visit!
Too bad we can only add 4 pics, we had lots of choices for our table of 6!!!

I had reservations for Saturday Sept 18 7p. We got there early and sat at the bar. The bartenders were outstanding!! The manager was very friendly. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. My party was made of bartenders and servers from MGM and we all were extremely happy with the food, service and management.

Food was delicious… even though the wait staff forgot to offer the complimentary chips and salsa. Make sure there isn’t an event nearby. We had to pay $30.00 for parking.

Loved the brunch menu with all you can eat small plates. Allowed us to try several things in one sitting multiple times.

I think if you get brunch, bottomless should be reduced or included.

Great experience. Looking forward to going back to sit on patio when it cools down.

We were here in July and got the “all you can eat” and everything that we got was amazing! We came back again in September and they aren’t doing “all you can eat” for dinner, I was very bummed. The food was still good but it’s way better when you can try lots of options on their menu.

The server was amazing! He had so much fun energy, made it an experience for me and my fiancé! And his recommendation from the menu was the best meal! We sat outside, a great ambiance too, we got to see an outside concert while dining.

Our server was very helpful and personable. My husband and I enjoyed the Patron margaritas and the chips/salsas/guac. My husband said that the chicken poblano enchiladas were pretty good, but the smoked prime rib tacos that I was served were so salty that they were barely edible. I had ate only of the three.

Okay, well where do I start? I’m allergic to avocado & I double checked everything on their menu before I made my selection of salad. When the salad came I expected no avocado because it didn’t state it on the menu. To my surprise, there was avocado in the salad & I had no idea so I bit right into it. When I told them about what happened to me they brought me a mini tamale to compensate me for the damage done to my stomach & skin later on that day….I will never be back to this restaurant again. I expected so much better from a place with reviews like theirs! Such a shame

Queso Fundido with carnitas was fantastic as were the short rib enchiladas. However, our carne asada tacos had steak that was over done and dried out.

Omg-everything was awesome-the food-drinks and service. We did the small plates brunch-highly recommended-can’t say which dish I loved the most-but heads up for the short rib hash. Fidel our server was excellent. Loved the Salsa Diablo-my favorite from many years ago when I visited with my husband.

The service was quick and warm. The food was cooked perfectly, seasoned nicely and was prompt. The shrimp ceviche was fresh, vibrant, and correctly proportioned. The pork was tender, juicy and seasoned to perfection. Chips and salsa were crisp and had three different levels of heat and spice. We would recommend eating here to anyone that loves Mexican cuisine.

Brunch is amazing. I had one of each item and everything was perfect. I love the idea of small plates over a buffet, more sanitary and less waste! Add this to your Las Vegas must do list.
