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.

Very Fine Food

We previously had eaten at the Border Grill in Mandalay Bay. Within the last 6 months they opened a second location in the Forum shops. It use to be the PJ Clarks. The food and service was very good. My wife had the Ciudad chicken which was half a chicken with the bone removed. I had the short... read more

Apparently there are two locations, so just to be clear this one is for the one located in Mandalay Bay. Food was good, not the best Mexican I ever had. The price was high only because it wasn't that good. My biggest gripe was the staff. Most everyone was luke warm with their reception of you being there. The waiter... More

This seems to be a very popular place, based on the crowds I saw there each day during a recent stay. I enjoy upscale Mexican restaurants, and have eaten in a few of them in Las Vegas. I ate dinner there one evening, and would rate this as average, compared to the competition. Service was very good, the waiter was... More

We went their for lunch after reading all good reviews. And it was good but it took 45 minutes for food to arrive. It was our last day at Vegas and we had an evening flight. Our server told us that they prepare everything fresh and that's normal waiting time on not so busy day. I wouldn't have gone to... More

Try the Cadillac Margaritas with the Yucatan Pork! Some of the best salsa I've had to go with the chips. Our waitress, Candice, was terrific.

Dined at Border Grill on April 11, 2015 for Brunch. I made a prior reservation, but it was not needed and we were seated immediately. A week prior to our trip, I signed up for their VIP club online, received a coupon for a free entrée and was able to use it for brunch. The restaurant is located on the... More

Second time I came here, finally decided to review. Impeccable service always. Delicious food across the board. Had an amazing Carnitas burger that made me never want to go back to beef burgers!

I love this restaurant! We have visited on all four of our trips to Las Vegas. The food is delicious and the service is exceptional. The guacamole is awesome! Can't wait to go back.

My granddaughter had been to brunch here previously and loved it, so we decided it was a must do on our last trip (Apr 2015)and I was not disappointed. It's unlimited small plates of really excellent elevated Mexican food. It's hard to pick a favorite, they were all so good! For $10 extra you can get unlimited mimosas/bellinis in a... More
