Welcome to Border Grill, Las Vegas' destination restaurant overlooking the Lazy River just off Mandalay Beach, where Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" and Food Network's "Too Hot Tamales," want nothing more than to spice up your day. With two floors of patio dining, and a beautiful outdoor bar, it's the perfect setting for sipping margaritas and savoring the bold flavors of Mexico while enjoying views of the beach and pool. Border Grill Las Vegas is located in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. There's so much to do at Mandalay Bay. The Shark Reef, right next door to the restaurant, features sharks of all kinds, as well as a slew of exotic, predatory marine life. Stop by for fish tacos after and have the last word in the food chain.

Good place for lunch

I always get the tortilla soup and tuna cevichi here. I can't vouch for anything else on the menu. But it is a decent lunch for an affordable price in the Mandalay Bay hotel.

We had one of the chef's specials titled just 'Steak and Potatoes'. Sounds pretty bland, but it was outstanding. We would have expected to pay far more than we did. Our waitress Gadsby was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. My mojito was excellent and the churro desser was so good we ordered one each instead of sharing!

This is a nice place, especially if visiting Shark Reef, or the convention center. The staff is efficient and quite friendly. Try the beef brisquet taquitos!

My wife and I like to do 3-nights trips to Las Vegas on a regular basis. We don't gamble but we eat & shop. We had reservations at a fine dining restaurant for evening #2 but nothing planned for the first evening. Since we were staying at Mandalay Bay we decided to look at the 'local' places and Border Grill... More

Had to get out of the convention area because as every other trade show I've attended the food is mediocre and very expensive. I came down the hall and got a seat right away. The service was excellent as well as the complimentary chips and salsa. I had a steak salad that was outstanding. I'll be back at the next... More

Ate with a group of about 20. Busy lunchtime crowd, but servers tried their best to keep up. Food was very good, but lunch took close to an hour and 20 minutes, so it might not be the best choice if you have time constraints.

Lunch at Border Grill means good food. If you are with a large convention, make a reservation or it could be a long wait. Fast service, many menu options. Inside and outdoor seating.

To put this in perspective, I had eaten in a "genuine" Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles a couple of nights before for half the price and am therefore judging Border Grill accordingly. So to the review and I'm here to tell you my opinion on this place is that it is overrated and overpriced. My starter (octopus, which was cooked... More

I eat here every time I am in Las Vegas. It is located near the convention center in the Mandalay Bay. On this trip I ordered the Poblano Enchiladas which were tasty and filling. I ordered a side of beans and rice too! We also had the guacamole side order with our chips. A little pricey at $9.50 but good.... More

We ate at the Border Grill before a concert on New Year's Eve. I expected great things because it is owned by two chefs on the food network. The menu had been changed just that day. It was not as expansive as I antipated. I ordered the endive salad...which was ok.... it was awkward to eat and had to be... More
