Fresh healthy Mexican variety, always tasty and quality never changes.

We have been eating at the Border Grill since they first opened here. The quality of the food has never changed, though some menu items have evolved over time. The food is not tex-mex red sauce driven, that most Mexican eateries put out. It is more Southern California, fresh and healthy, with... read more

Each time I've gone to Border Grill I'm disappointed with the price and the flavor. The food is bland and really not that healthy and way overpriced to boot!

Diane, an apology is in order any time one of our guests leaves dissatisfied. It's fun to receive positive feedback from our guests but the greatest lessons rest in the critical feedback... So on behalf of BG I thank you for taking the time to tell us where we can improve. If you don't mind I'd like to ask a... More

This place rocks, we love the Blanca salsa, and get some to bring home with us, as this is a true local place. We got to have a meal here twice this visit. Would have been 3 times, but one was standing room only. Always busy, and great food.

Neither my mother or I had ever been to a Border Grill so decided to give it a try. Both of us wanted tacos but with hard shells which we discovered they don't have. We tried a soft shell one with shredded pork- it was okay but not what we really wanted. Since it was our first time visiting a... More

One of our go to restaurants in Marquette. Great authentic Mexican food, plus they are more than happy to serve to those who require a gluten free or vegan diet!!!

This local chain offers very fresh tasting unique U.P. Mexican food. We almost always stop for a burrito there or call one into the Negaunee store for pick up.

I've been going to Border Grill since they first opened in the late 1990's. Customers order at the counter and the staff will bring your choices to your table. Their Marquette location is just off the bike path so you'll see cyclists stop by (bike racks available), famiilies, couples, and even business lunches. Everything is made from scratch and since...

Cheap food cheap drinks. 3.50 for a beer you can't go wrong. We were stuck looking for somewhere to eat in Marquette that wasn't too fancy or too dingy and this hit the spot.
