"Had reservations for lunch for three to celebrate a Birthday. We were seated promptly and chips and 3 different salsa's were brought to the table- the variety of salsa's was a pleasant surprise. We ordered chicken enchilada's and fish taco's. Both dishes were excellent and the portions were huge. Both orders served with rice and beans which were very good. The fish taco's were excellent , the fish was grilled and the tortilla's tasted homemade.
Prior to our lunch being served an appetizer of green corn tamales was brought to our table- when we said we didn't order an appetizer he said they were on the house! They were the most delicious and moist tamales I've had- everyone in our group loved them.
Our waitress then brought out a Flan with a candle to celebrate the Birthday. The Flan was delicious, not too sweet and a firm texture.
We would definitely return. The restaurant décor is very vibrant and the soundtrack was great- not your typical restaurant music. Our waitress was attentive but not obtrusive."

"We've been enjoying many wonderful meals and dinners with friends at Border Grill since 1990! We've never been disappointed.
The service is always friendly and excellent.. from the host/hostess who greets us, to our table server and the buspersons. And the food never fails to delight us.
And they have the best chips and salsa in town."

"Granted it has been 4 years since we have had a meal here, but how things have changed - for the worse.
In a nutshell,our appetizers were served 2 minutes after our cocktails were put in front of us and then the mains were served 5 minutes later.
Ridiculous.

"Good, but not as good as I expected. The carnitas was strangely dry, but the sauces underneath were super delicious. Taquitos were served with very good pickled cabbage, but the meat in the taquitos was tasteless. It wasn't a standout from most mexican restaurants."

"Our server was awesome! The idea of brunch in unlimited small plates is the best, plus bottomless mimosas with 3 different choices! Goodness, my friends and I could've stayed longer. Great people and great food... What more can you ask for during brunch."

""I was hung over" Yes, I got a hangover from an absolutely delicious margarita made with tequila and grand marnier. I get high very easily obviously but I have to say it was worth it. No probs with anything and my husband, who is watching what he eats, was very happy with his hanger steak tacos. It's a casual environment. We'll be back."

"A typical owned by a big name chef but the level of food doesn't match the hype. The chips are good beyond that not much to talk about. The margaherita was close to awful. Not my idea of a worthy resturant."

"Food was excellent. Decor looks great, but acoustics are not. Pretty loud.
Service was not up to speed. Bus staff worked harder than anyone.
