Review: Border Grill in Las Vegas

When you go to Las Vegas, it is a must to check out one of the many offered brunches or buffets. For this trip, my sister and I decided to go to the Border Grill. I will admit the main draw of the place was its $10 bottomless mimosas. It’s Vegas so of course we wanted to take advantage of this.

Border Grill did not ask me to write a review for them. This is all my own opinion.

Border Grill is a Mexican Style Restaurant at the Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas Strip. When my sister first brought up this place for brunch, I was a little hesitant. I love mexican food, but the thought of it for breakfast wasn’t the best in my head at the time. Boy was I proven wrong!

Border Grill has a brunch where they offer an unlimited amount of small plates of the foods on their menu for $35. This is a pretty average price for breakfast in Vegas.Think of Tapas, when you think of brunch here. The size of the plates were small enough that you were able to order a large variety of the different plates offered while still getting a good amount of each specific menu item. My sister particularly loved the French toast while I favored the Huevos Rancheros.

Another real fun thing that this restaurant did, was they offer flavored mimosas. We tried peach, pomegranate, passion fruit, strawberry basil, blood orange, and carrot blood orange. My favorite was the strawberry basil. It was fun to be able to try all of the different flavors. Again, all of these mimosas were ONLY $10. Pretty good deal for a Vegas restaurant.

The only downside I had to this place was the walk. We stayed at Caesar’s Palace so it was a but of a hike to Mandalay Bay which is at the end of the strip. I promise you though that the brunch was well worth our 2 mile morning walk. In fact I recommend that if you are looking to do brunch in Vegas you make it a priority to go here. IT WAS THAT GOOD.

The setting of the place offers both indoor and outdoor seating so if the weather is nice and you like to sit out on the patios, they have that option. The setting was awesome and I have to say this was one of my favorite spots on my Vegas trip.

What are some good places you have gone to eat at when in Vegas? What kind of cuisine do you enjoy? Let me know in my comments! :)

Chao Beautifuls!

 

What happens in Vegas

Las Vegas is known as the city to party, gamble and do things that are generally not considered ‘normal’. A city with plenty to do and see, you will not find yourself having a dull moment.

I went to sin city to for the weekend to celebrate my baby sis’s 21st birthday. Needless to say you can’t go wrong with celebrating in Vegas. Unless you decide to reenact ‘The Hangover’, which luckily for us there were no similar instances on this occasion, well other than staying at Caesar’s Palace… “This isn’t the real Caesar’s Palace is it?”

Living in Salt Lake City, I made the 6 hour drive south to meet up with my sister who flew in from her school. Let me tell you, that drive by yourself gets old real fast, but is MUCH cheaper and well worth it compared to spending the money on a flight down. Besides, my fellow Utahns know that a weekend drive to Vegas is almost a right of passage and considered a norm.


Friday Night 

For this shindig, we stayed at Caesar’s Palace. We got a pretty great deal off Kayak.

With my sister’s flight getting in pretty late, we jumped right into the nightlife. We went to OMNIA, a club in Caesar’s Palace, chosen for convenient location and the fact that Calvin Harris was one of the DJ’s for the night. We couldn’t pass that up.
