We made the mistake of going the day most of the staff was down the street at Festival Supreme. Oddly they crammed most people along the wall even though there was plenty of space. It took so long for anyone to come over we decided against all you can eat brunch. Good thing we did because service was quite scarce once food came. At the end of the meal the hostess came by and took our plates along with the chips, which we were actively eating. I don't think she actually asked us if we were done. I usually like this place but they need to rethink their staffing during events.

Our party came here for the weekend brunch. We ended up between us ordering almost everything on the brunch menu which was overall pretty great. The highlights were the huevos rancheros and the frittata tart. If you come here and are lucky like we were, you'll even get to see Border Grill's celebrity chef Susan Feniger. The only thing that wasn't great about Border Grill was the service. Between picking our first selections from the brunch menu and dishes arriving it had been so long that we'd forgotten what we ordered. Expect a meal to take at least an hour and a half.

My family is from Wisconsin we came here on vacation our waiter suggested the Baja appetizer and it was out of this world. All the food was excellent the chips were fresh and the hot sause was incredible.

Still my place to go for Ceviche and a great craft beer. The specials add to your choices and the sweet corn tamales when they are in season, round a all of the choices I need. You can often the see one or both of the Two Hot Tamales in residence, a'working and creating.

My food here was good but some of the dishes my party got turned out to be raw. The decor is verging on weird though its interesting in a way. The service was very friendly and helpful.
