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.

So much food

My husband and I each ordered the Tapas plates and had WAY too much food. But, it was excellent. My young children weren't thrilled with their chicken fingers because they were real chicken meat and most of it was dark meat. But, I would definitely go there again.

Was wanting a little lunch and thought this restaurant would be a good choice. Not so much!!! It took forever to place our order. Food came out staggered - some were served, others waited 15 minutes to get their food. For the price, the food could have been better and service could be much improved. Alcoholic drinks were average at... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch during convention. The staff were great and found us a table for 2. With the restaurant slammed for lunch service, service was fast and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was great. I had the Carne Asada tacos and my wife had the tortilla soup and a quesadilla. We would recommend... More

Border Grill is a great place to grab good Mexican food and delicious margaritas while enjoying the Las Vegas weather. We shared a Veggie Quesadilla and the Tuna Crudo along with the chips and salsa of course. The Blanco Margarita was excellent with no mix, just tequila, lime juice and agave just the way I make them at home, a... More

I had high hopes based on a recommendation from another restaurant. We ordered 2 dozen oysters and each only ate one. They tasted fishy which is the last thing you want. We politely told out hostess and her response was that there was nothing wrong with the oysters. Not an enjoyable experience and I would not go back. This place... More

Went here for lunch after my visit from shark reef. The hostess was rude and arrogant and didn't even smile, or look at me and my family. ( I complained to the manager, but they didn't seem to care). I assume I was high roller enough. The food was amazing, the tacos were sooooo delicious!!!!!!' Also are server was nice.... More

Taste was okay. Not the best Mexican I had. This is not real mexican food. Costly Tex-mex what we call. American-Mexican food. Price is high all over Vegas and quantity is small. Again I am comparing to Texas!

We happened upon this place in Mandalay Bay and wanted to give it a try. I love Mexican! It was a Monday and they had a Vegetarian Monday special. It included a trio of veggie appetizers which were delicious and so different from anything I get back in NY! The avocado tacos were also very good.
