Fresh fast food

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.

We needed a quick meal when passing through Marquette and happened upon this place. It reminded me of the Chipotle chain of restaurants from the outside, but upon seeing the menu after entering, it was certainly something quite different. The Chip Sampler was great. You get three kinds of chips with your choice of three of seven sauces. We tried... More

Food was good, but prices were a little expensive for what it is. Had to try it though as it seems to be a local favorite.

Loved the ease of ordering. A great fresh take on Mexican food. We went with a group of 10 (ages 45-94) and there was something for everyone. What a great place for kids, also. Will return upon my next visit to the UP.

We've stopped here several times when driving through Marquette on road trips. It's less than a mile off the main highway and easy to find. The staff are always friendly. The food comes quickly. It tastes "real" and not overly processed, and the it is very reasonably priced. It's essentially a local take-off of Chipotles or Qdoba. We've tried the... More

I don't live in Marquette anymore, but every time I go back I go here and every time I get the BRC. It's an amazing burrito and I wish they could ship them! They orange salsa is also amazing. I wish I knew how to make it, or if they sold it by the jar I'd definitely buy it! Can't... More

Authentic Mexican...NO...I say more Baja Cali type. The food IS very good!! Very fresh ingredients, well cooked and served hot. It is very flavorful and a great change from chain fast food.
