    Lots of food, so if you pick the unlimited choice, make sure you are hungry. The food came out warm, not hot, and nothing was spectacular. The bloody marys were nothing to write home about either, but our service was great. However for the price we paid, I would have expected great food and drink as well!! $350 for 4 of us

    Service is actually pretty bad for a strip restaurant and the food was below mediocre. The hostess was rude and looked very unprofessional with a ridiculously looking long cardigan that looked like a PJ and it took forever for them to just give us water. Really disappointed

    My wife and I got resv for our anniversary. We got there early so we ended up at a table in the bar. All 4 of our margaritas were great. Food was very good. The bartender serving our table was very nice and attentive. The servers who brought the food were helpful and pleasant. Price was a little steep but reasonable for a casino Restaurant. Overall we loved it.

    The ahi tuna ceviche was tasty and refreshing. The plantain chips were the added crunch I needed. I also had the blood orange lemonade with my meal. It was the right amount of sweet. Overall, the food and service were excellent.

    The outside seating was very noisy and it was even difficult to talk with each other at the table. That small inconvenience was more than overcome by the wonderful food and the excellent service. Our waitress was fantastic and so were servers and bus persons. We went for the restaurant week menu and were thoroughly satisfied by the food.

    Unfortunately I was sick after eating there. I had the chicken enchiladas, chips and guacamole (eaten by my whole patty), and a margarita. I’m the only one who got sick. The food tasted very good, and our server was lovely.

    We were there during Restaurant week - the options on the Restaurant week menu were not available on the regular menu. We ordered the Plantain empanadas (4/10), Chile Relleno (6/10, and the Churro Cheesecake (9/10). I expected the plantains in the empanadas to be less sweet. The sweetness did not pair well with the spicy sauce on top. The Chile Relleno was just ok. Nothing special - about like any Chile relleno I've gotten at much cheaper restaurants. For $50 per person, I expected better. The dessert was delicious, though. The only thing keeping the cheesecake from 10/10 is the churro "crust" was soggy instead of crispy, which was a little disappointing. Overall meal was just ok. Service was good. Drinks were overpriced for not being anything special - the 2 margaritas I had were not even served in margarita glasses, so that was a little disappointing.

    The food was plated so prettily and tasted so good. Definitely want to go back again. The lemonade was a little tart but the chips were so good and handmade. The guacamole was fresh and I want to snack on that guacamole all day.

    Food and server were fantastic. That shrimp ceviche is amazing On several occasions this trip, experiences with your hostesses are atrocious. There was one - wish I had her name a long dark hair. Her pompous attitude and just garbage demeanor to customers is uncalled for. I hope next visit she will be gone.

    I was looking forward to eating at Border Grill for a while now because of videos I had seen on YouTube. Unfortunately, things fell short. The food looked good, but didn’t have much flavor. I ordered the green enchiladas. They were dry and quite plain. For $29 with no rice or beans, they just weren’t worth it. I also ordered a side brussel sprouts. They came to our table and looked very dark with no green left on them whatsoever. They were way over-cooked. They were mushy to the point of being pasty. I let the waitress know this, and she kindly took them off our bill. The $16 “Cadillac” margarita was small and tasted like a regular margarita (not enough Grand Marnier). My wife ordered a $50 combination that was some kind of fundraiser for the restaurant. It came with an appetizer, entree, and dessert. This fell short as well. The appetizer was a “campechana” shrimp cocktail. Now “campechana” to me means mixed seafood cocktail with not only shrimp, but octopus as well. What came out was so tiny I literally started laughing at the table. It was not much bigger than a shot glass and had only ONE shrimp in it. It was not much of an appetizer. My wife’s chile relleno was okay. Her dessert was a “coconut flan.” Now when I hear coconut flan, and this being a gourmet Mexican restaurant, I was expecting flan that had coconut flavor in it. All this dessert was was a small slice of regular flan with some dried coconut flakes sprinkled on it. Nothing special. So, like I said, I was disappointed with what we received. I won’t be recommending this place any time soon.

    Enjoyed the brunch menu. The only item we didn’t enjoy was the Diablo chicken. It was sure spicy and the breading was soft. But all the other small plates was excellent! Churro Tots, steak and eggs, salmon avocado toast, blueberry poppy seed pancakes.
