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.

Pretty good Mexican food!

I had the wayngu beef tacos. Three to an order. It comes with black beans and rice. I had the peach lemonade to drink. All were pretty good. Not a huge Mexican food lover. But for my occasional craving this did the trick. You can sit inside or outside face a pool and palm trees. They start you with... read more

Food is amazing, a bit over priced, but amazing!! The service was very good as well, they came around a ton to check on me and refill my drink.

We were staying in Las Vegas for four nights and on the penultimate night we were recommended to the Border Grill at the Mandalay Bay. The food was excellent, easily our best evening meal in Las Vegas. Price wise it wasn't the cheapest but it certainly put other restaurants we went to to shame. Service generally in Las Vegas is...

The food was really, really tasty. Good quality meats really came through, everything had lovely flavours and was cooked very well. The service was impeccable. Attentive, professional, knowledgable and genuine. None of that fake happy that seems to be everywhere. The waiter recommended some great stuff for my youngest son with less complicated flavours which he loved and I really... More

This restaurant is located inside Mandalay Bay and it honestly is some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. The views were great (overlooked pool) and the service was good as well. The queso dip is out of this world!!! I have tried to duplicate with no success :(. Can't wait to go back. This will be my first... More

Don't waste your time or money at either of the two Border Grill restaurants in Las Vegas. I had purchased two Travelzoo vouchers. I visited both locations over a 5 week period. The food is truly nothing special. The best items were the guacamole and the desert. On the first visit (Forum Shops) I ordered the $29 steak, on the... More

My husband and I used the Travelzoo $59 deal and we're blown away by both the food and service. Every single dish was superb and our server could not have been nicer if she tried. The Travelzoo deal came with a shared guacamole starter a full appetizer to share, 2 entrees, a shared dessert, and 2 alcoholic drinks. (It actually... More

Husband and I ate at Border Grill on a Friday night before a concert. Had a 5:15 reservation - glad we did, because it filled up shortly after. We had a Travelzoo voucher for a complete meal for 2. Chose to sit inside, and was surprised at how cramped the dining area was. But once seated, our perfect evening began,... More

Margaritas made with very tasteless pre-mix, while the food was just mediocre at best. Our server told us the founders spent four years in Mexico studying the art of nuanced Mexican food ... Really? Food was not bad, just ok. I love good Mexican food and was disappointed here. It was very expensive relative to what was served. I know... More
