    Food was really disappointing- ordered the prime rib tacos and they were dry and very strong smoke flavor which felt like I was eating a cigarette . The other meat dishes were dry and cold. Definitely not returning there anytime soon.

    We always love Border Grill. We ate there or took take out every day at Delano (3days). The service and food are always great. Both of the ceviche dishes as well as the carne asada tacos are our go tos.

    We did the brunch menu. It was so good. Not all the dishes were great but we loved the little plates and tried it all and then ordered more of what we liked. Service was great! I definitely want to go back again, but I can’t afford to go back again soon.

    I usually hate to post somewhat negative reviews, but unfortunately I think this is warranted. Now I want to be completely fair so I'll provide the good, the bad, and the ugly from my recent experience. GOOD: the staff was incredibly friendly. My reservation was messed up and they tried to rectify the issue immediately which I truly appreciated. They eventually found me a table outside and was genuinely apologetic for the error. Also, the gentlemen that waited on my table was incredibly courteous. I always appreciate good service whenever I dine out. It's all part of the dining experience. Lastly, the location was pretty cool as well. It was right next to the Mandalay Bay pool so it was great ambiance and sightseeing while having my meal. BAD: after reading all the reviews, I was pretty excited to try the weekend brunch menu. The sample sized meals were okay. Not great, but okay. I guess I set my expectations way too high so I was somewhat disappointed in the quality of the food. Especially for a city like Las Vegas where great restaurants and good food options are in abundance. UGLY: Maybe I came during the busiest time (weekend Saturday brunch), but the server for my table was running around super busy. So he only had the opportunity to swing by my table intermittently. It wasn't like he was providing poor service (in fact great service), but I just thought he was just overworked monitoring a fairly large section. So kudos to him for swinging by my table when he could. Perhaps they were understaffed that day. Who knows. But when you order off the brunch menu you are only allowed to order 3 to 4 dishes at a time. So since most are bite-like portions and the server only visits your table once every 15-20 mins, its really hard to enjoy the meal. Lots of waiting time. What made it even worse is that 3 of the 16 available options were not available. And of course my luck, two of the items I really wanted to sample off the brunch menu they ran out of that day.

    Great patio and amazing food. Get the chicken poblano enchiladas and the churro ice cream sandwich. So yum! Server was helpful and patio was quiet and a great spot to get some warm air during a freezing cold conference.

    Creative menu on there small plate brunch, only the steak and eggs and regular coffee failed to meet the level of everything else. The shredded beef (steak) had to much vinegar and the eggs seamed to be powdered (another dish with eggs was real). Coffee was not hot and regular sugar was not available(Splenda and Raw sugar) Now everything else was very tasty, Chilaquiles, Drunken Peruvian French Toast was perfect not to sweet and heavy. Prickly pear parfait was very good. Brunch here is a way better choice than a buffet anywhere else, I don't eat at any.

    I have attended several conferences at the Mandalay Bay and always have at least one lunch at Border Grill. Got seated quickly, the tacos were great, and it was so nice to have the opportunity to sit outside and get some fresh air after being inside for days at a conference. It's always busy when there's a conference going on (which I assume is most of the time) so make sure and get a reservation to get outside space. The bar area is a good alternative too if you don't plan ahead.

    We had an issue during a previous experience, called and spoke with a manager. We were invited back, manager said they would comp our meal. Lol. They comped two orders of guac and took seven dollars in a locals discount. Not at all what they said when we called to let them know about the issue
