Coming from So. Cal. I have eaten many types of Mexican food from TexMex to food so authentic you have to speak Spanish to order. Border Grill is in a class by itself and is excellent. Great variety, flavor and value.More

Lin... it's refreshing to see someone recognize the uniqueness of our concept. I also am from So. Cal. and much of my inspiration for Border Grill came from that area. I would characterize our style as simple, fresh, clean ingredients with a Mexican flavor profile....More

You won't be sorry here. Great food, atmosphere, service, all at a reasonable price. My favorite is the shrimp burrito. I can't say I have had anything here that wasn't really good.

Thanks for your great comments! I'm glad we could touch all those bases for you... I would call that a home run! Even after 20 years, we work on that every single day.

This is a really cool, modern place with 2 levels. The workers are enthusiastic and efficient. I had a whitefish burrito which was very tasty. I LOVED the dipping sauce for the tortilla chips! I like that you can get non-spicy or spicy.More

Thanks Sue... I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. The whitefish is one of the items that really separates us from most fast-casual restaurants. That dipping sauce is our Border Salsa, which our regulars refer to simply as "The Orange Stuff". Tons of fans over the...More

Five out of the six people in my family love Border Grill. Nearly every Friday is Border Grill Day at my house. They might each give it 4, maybe 5 stars. I give it a 3, so let's say it balances out to a 4-star...More

Hey Dave... good news! The Mexico City Taco is back! You are correct, we did take that off the menu to make room for some new taco options we introduced, but due to popular demand it's back on the menu. I hope this at least...More

This one was easy to walk to from the Holiday Inn. The service was fine and had a nice atmosphere. The food was really good and the menu online was helpful.

I guess if you've never been outside of the UP this would pass as Mexican food. It's not. It's not even close.
