The dead come to life at Borracha. With decorative and festival skulls watching over guests, Borracha, located in Green Valley Ranch, is as dangerous as you want it to be. With a nod toward the famed Day of the Dead, the Borracha offers Mexican-inspired dishes and features a drink menu with an abundance of cervezas, tequila and specialty cocktails to take the edge off. The menu is as seductive as the surroundings, featuring sharable plates, inventive burritos and entrees that would make any skeleton want come back to life. Made-from-scratch tortillas and addictive tacos featuring rotisserie chicken, slow-cooked short ribs and fresh Baja fish gives your palate and explosion of flavor. A hand-painted floor and wraparound mural brings life to the intimate lounge and brings a festive vibe to the celebratory space.

It is to hard to enjoy a conversation. Music is way to loud for a restaurant

We were staying on property for a convention and had enjoyed this restaurant on a previous occasion. When meeting local friends later in the week, I suggested that we visit Borracha again, having had a great previous experience. Big mistake!! Had we known that that there would be a DJ during the dinner hour, we definitely would have gone elsewhere. The music was so loud that it was impossible to have normal dinner conversation without yelling. We requested to have the music turned down a few times which was never done. We were a party of mixed ages, and we all agreed that the music was absurdly loud. The food and beverages were good, but call to make sure that there will be no DJ for an enjoyable experience.

The chef in this place is creative and unique. I have been a Mexican Food fan for 50+ years. His guacamole is outstanding. The Father's Day Special, Steak and Lobster Burrito was one of a kind excellent. The Margaritas were top shelf. Love the place.

Food was good and service was friendly. However, they misplaced two of our three food orders, causing a delay. The manager did come out to apologize, and gave us a round of drinks, so that was nice.

Open fronted, center bar restaurant. Food was decent, service was quick and prices were decent. Not sure why saying "No cilantro" resulted in no chimichurri sauce on my carne asada but I guess they make it different at this place. Chips were better than most and probably the highlight of the meal.

Food very generic. Salsa tasted like it came from a jar. Chips from a bag. Refried beans from a can and rice from a microwave bag. Nothing special.

I like the place but there are challenges. We have been there 3 time now, the first time seemed to be a success but the 2nd and 3rd time was not. The biggest problem is that they are under staffed. The manager needs to have at least 2 additional waiters and another bartender keeping up with the customers. That was the biggest complaint, I would of had 2 additional drinks the time i was there and my friend would of had at least one more. Also this is a Mexican restaurant but there was no hot sauce or chilis available. The salsa tastes like it comes from a package, the guac was ok but i think it comes from a package also. If they had these items addressed we may consider another visit. good luck in the future.

Service was good. Best food in this place: the complimentary corn tortillas they serve with salsa. I had Mahi Mahi tacos... Not good. Fish was dry, and basically very little taste. This entré came with rise and beans. Went on Friday night, around 6pm, the place us terribly noisy, impossible to hear anything. Sorry for a negative review, but I gave to be honest.

The music is just way to loud. Everyone has to yell to be able to hear. Hard for servers to hear us and hard to hear them. We don’t come as often as we would like because of the noise and we never come with any other people because you can’t carry on a conversation.

I arrived right on time, my party a few min later, we were not seated for 30+ minutes after our arrival since the restaurant didn't reserve a booth as per my request.

The blended frozen margarita arrived a watered down mess with 2 inches of foam on top because their machine was broken but they served the drink anyway. We were told, "that's just how they are coming out today..." . Disappointing that this was acceptable. The replacement drink was served with salt on the rim when we had requested no salt.

Food was ok, not great, based on the price point.

Overall I wouldn't tell anyone to check this place out, not sure if I will ever go back.

Based on the address we had no idea it is housed in a casino, so it was too noisy for me. Also it was dark, had to use phone flashlight to see menu. Otherwise it was a pleasant experience. Our server was very nice and checked on us frequently. Our meal arrived hot and the food was good, not exceptional.

This place is more like a Mexican sports bar. I had the lobster tacos which were good but a co-worker had a burrito that he didn’t touch. My rice and beans were cold and lacked flavor. The drinks we ordered came out wrong and the manager finally got involved helping the service but overall experience would not go back.

The food here is superb. Not a huge fan of the ambience as it’s design makes it feel pretty open to the casino and more bar-like than intimate, but the food is so good that we’re here at least once a month anyway. Love the healthy options.

The food was on the spicy side and did not taste as fresh as we expected. Our order was so promptly served to the table after we ordered it, that it seemed it may not have been freshly prepared. I ordered the chicken tacos and my husband had the chicken quesadilla. There was very little chicken in either of the dishes and it was in a lot of sauce, which made it hard to determine if it was really chicken. Perhaps other items on the menu would have been better, and we may give it another try, however not inclined to go back soon. The ambiance and the drinks were great though!

As usual, the food was very good. We were not happy with not being seated at our reservation time and were told to wait for an open table. The noise level was a bit high for decent conversation. Once seated the service was prompt by both the waiter and the very efficient gentlemen who kept to water glasses and chip basket full!
