Border Grill Review

Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger are the popular, green-minded cooking personalities who created this cheery, sophisticated outpost of their Santa Monica restaurant. Starters include green-corn tamales, citrusy ceviche, and housemade guacamole, while grilled sustainable fish and hormone-free meats, such as skirt steak and turkey, make healthful, flavorful fillings for lunchtime tacos and tortillas. For dinner, opt for dishes such as the sautéed jumbo shrimp with braised greens and rice, beef brisket taquitos with spicy slaw, or anchiote-spiced pork roasted in banana leaves. Service is snappy, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a tastier margarita in town—particularly the pomegranate and honeydew versions. The weekend brunch features creative small plates, such as chile-marinated shrimp and parmesan grits, short-rib hash and eggs, and cinnamony, bite-size churros served with two dipping sauces.

    Best Mexican Food on The Strip!

    Hands down, this place is top notch! The chips were hot, the salsas (and homemade guacamole!) fresh, the chiles rellenos delectable, and the dessert simply fabulous. Oh yes, and the wait staff were quite attentive and courteous. I went here last month, and I can't wait to go back soon!

    Always great lunches by the pool

    Good Mexican food- Best Magarita in Vegas.
    Always friendly wait staff and a varied menu- not a Burrito/ Taco kind of restaurant.

    Is the LV version any better than LA?

    We tried the LA original of this restaurant. Dirty, crowded, noisy, full of screaming kids! Waiters were harried and disorganized. Terrible, cold food. For a place that Zagats rated OK, this was certainly a huge downer. I wonder if the LV version is any better.
