“Good food!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I don't know anyone who doesn't love Border Grill in town. Its more fresher ingredients. No deep-fried food. Fish tacos, nachos, burritos salads, and margaritas, yum!! Live music outside outside in the summer.

“Great burritos”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

I wouldn't really consider this a Mexican restaurant but they do have really good burritos for a reasonable price. The food is always fresh and fast

“Fast, Healthy & Good California Cuisine”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

So many people in Marquette call this Mexican, but it is not. If you want a "southwest or California baja" fast food option that is heathy with quality ingredients, this is your place. I have been going to Border Grill since it opened. I love their salads. They are accommodating as for leaving out ingredients. Their burritos are good too. A few years ago they added a smaller size to their salads and burritos (Just Rite size is smaller) and this is welcome and very popular. The staff is fun and very friendly, so eating in the restaurant is a nice experience. This place is so popular that they have expanded from one tiny little restaurant in downtown Marquette to now three locations.... it is that good. One on Washington Street across from Shopko, one on Third street, and one in Negaunee. They also have drive through pick-up so you can call ahead, order, and pick up - easy!

“I'm always comparing to Chipotle”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Since its the only burrito place in town that I am aware of, I tried it out on a recommendation. I got the Grande Burrito with chicken in the Just Right size. It was tasty, and wasn't so huge that I couldn't finish it. It came in a nice little box to go with chips and some sort of cheesy looking salsa - not sure what it was, but it was on the bland side. The burrito again was good, but I always compare burritos with the ones I get at Chipotle. The flavors don't burst out of the burrito like Chipotle, but this is still a good burrito. The wait was a little longer then expected to get my order at the counter - not as fast as Chipotle (sorry, I just love Chipotle!).
