Description: 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.

“I surrender!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

A white flag should be provided with the brunch menu to stop the incredible small plates of food from coming! One after another our waiter, James, brought us the most delicious offerings that run the gamut of flavors, textures and tastes. It's impossible to decide your favorite because they're all fabulous. Best brunch in Vegas in my humble opinion!

“Excellent Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Tapas style brunch--order a bit at a time for as long as you like. $5 bottomless mimosas. Will definitely go back next year.

“A Delicious Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Border Grill is in Mandalay Beach, about a 7-mile walk from your room. OK, I exaggerate slightly, but you will log some distance on your pedometer getting to BG. However, the walk is well worth it.

The Border Grill serves excellent, authentic Mexican food, from two delicious varieties of ceviche, to real fish tacos (corn, not flour, of course), with three delicious salsas to choose from.

Drinks are a bit on the expensive side, particularly the featured drinks, so cerveza may be your better choice. However, everything tried on the menu was tasty, so if you're in the mood for some authentic Mexican food, this is a good spot to choose.

The brunch option is great, BUT make sure to order two or three items at a time. Otherwise you will be waiting for some time as each order is made. Try one of each.
