"I go to the Border Grill when I'm in Santa Monica, because it's such a welcoming place, and the food is SO GOOD. I had the Yucatan Pork this time and it was so delicious. I had enough for two meals."

"I found this place on Yelp looking for a nice place to sit down and have some tacos after a long day at the pier. Despite the hoards of people on the 3rd Street Promenade we were able to be seated right away and comfortably too. The service was very good, our waitress was able to pace herself along with our mood, which was exhausted and slow. The food was very good and unique however kind of pricey... So I did what I always do at pricy Mexican food restaurants, drown myself in their free salsa. You'll want to do this too, it's really good. I had a great time, it was worth it."

"Every time I am in Santa Monica I make it a point to visit Border Grill and I'm
never disappointed. I love the freshness of the food, the many choices they have
on the menu and the friendliness of the wait staff.
We brought two teenagers with us this time and they also loved the food. We were served
quickly with the amazing chips and assorted salsas and argued over which sauce was the best.
Unlike other Mexican restaurants, I always feel good after eating at Border since it's great food prepared in healthy ways with the best ingredients."

"I've been going to this Border Grill for years. This past Friday I was there for date night with my lovely girlfriend and it just wasn't the same. The rice was hard. The beans weren't flavorful and her dish seemed a little sour. We will definitely give it another chance one day, but this last visit was very disappointing. It didn't help that some crazy homeless guy came in talking about he was going to stab someone.. Come on Border Grill, we're pulling for you to get back to what it use to be!
Cheers,
Abe

"Usually love this place but I wonder if it's slipping. My 3 different piles of rice had 3 different colors but no notable difference in flavor. Do they put parmesan cheese in their black beans? Maybe a special 'city' event diverted the attention of the chef that evening? Hope so 'cause if it tastes 'off' again, I will stop coming here."
