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.

This is the 'local coffee/ sandwich shop' located in the lobby of the wynn and encore hotel. It has very much of a french cafe feel. You are able to sit an eat after ordering your food at the counter. This was a delicious breakfast option on my way out in the morning. Personally, I felt that they... read more

We ate here before one of the shows, & had to move our reservations up by 30 min. Very friendly staff, & good food. Would liked to have spent more time there, but we were in a hurry.

Border Grill offers an edgy mix of Latin American fare. Lunch started out as it does in most Mexican restaurants--with complimentary corn chips and three kinds of salsa; but everything after that was extraordinary and delicious. The Baja Ceviche (Mexican white shrimp, catch of the day, tomato, jalapeno aioli on a large corn tortilla) and Caribbean Carpaccio (catch of the... More

A group of five us our recently had Saturday brunch at Border Grill and we absolutely loved the entire experience. First of all, the food was delicious, and with unlimited small plates we got to try a little bit of everything. The unlimited mimosas were also great. I usually don't like mimosas and would prefer just the sparkling wine, but... More

This was one of the Best brunches I have ever been to. They bring out endless small plates of the most amazing food. The plate size was perfect to let my husband and I try everything. Our server was also great.

The food was below average. The guac dip was supposed to be great. When the waiter asked how we liked it I told him it was below par. He did not know what to do and did not care. They get the convention business anyway. This place is not as good as about 5 places in the Chicago suburbs that... More

Place is a winner. Food is very good and affordable. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The fish tacos are excellent, and the nachos are great.

loved the food here, and good choices. Reasonably priced (for Vegas standards). The ceviche was great, I had it two days in a row.

We have frequented this restaurant ever since it first opened, but our recent visits have been for the highly regarded weekend brunch. After signing up my wife for the VIP club, I printed off a 2 for 1 entree coupon that we decided to use for dinner. We were started off with a bowl of fresh taco chips and 3... More

Being at Delano and having a convention, I walked by here twice a day. We stopped once for lunch and once for dinner, it was worth 2 trips. The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding, not always the case in these mega hotels. I liked the huge pitcher of complementary ice water and the chips with 3 different... More
