We ate lunch here late one day, no wait, excellent food,plenty on your plate. Fresh made dishes, one of the best margueritas and mohitios we have had. not cheap , but the food was worth it! Sort of out of the way of other places so NOT so crowded.

My friends and I had booked a cabana at Mandalay Bay and were looking for lunch options other than the food service provided by the pool area. Border Grill was right next to where we were sitting, so we decided to try it out. I'm so glad we did. The wait staff was friendly and efficient, and when we asked... More

Was hoping for more as I had heard great things about this place. Food was good but not great. I didn't like the texture of the chips. The enchiladas were good but I have had better in Vegas.

We were looking for a light lunch at the Mandalay Bay and found this restaurant recommended for their street tacos which were excellent!

Do yourself a favor and sit in the shaded area outside, it is relaxing and cool. The drinks are pretty good and of the standard Mexican restaurant variety.. but the chips and salsa are EXCELLENT. The guacamole is also very solid. Most of the menu is similar to most of the other decent mexican lunch style joints, but everything we... More

I had lunch here with friends and sat on the covered patio. It was quite warm out that day so I was happy to not be in direct sunlight. The chips & salsa(s) was fantastic. We each got different types of tacos and everyone enjoyed their meals. The food/drink prices seemed reasonable for the strip. The food arrived quickly and... More

In Vegas for a conference and just stumbled on to this restaurant. Lots of gluten free options along with gluten free beer. Great service and good came out quickly. Pretty darn tasty too!

Had dinner here with a small group. Limited menu. Had the option to sit on the heated balcony that over looks the pool. We weren't thrilled with our food. Ordered the lobster tacos special as we were all looking for a light meal. Not very good honestly. Almost all of the tacos had lobster shell inside. Taco shell was not... More

We enjoyed lunch at Border Grill. The food and service were both great. The location is convenient to the Mandalay Bay convention center.

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.
