Border Grill Las Vegas Lunch Review

LVI | Sep 29, 2008 12:30 PM

Lunch is so often overlooked in Las Vegas. And I can see/say why, especially for those of us like myself that get away to Vegas for just a long weekend find it difficult tearing themselves away from whatever activity they may have gotten involved (for me it was poker tournament and lounging poolside). I wish I had ventured out more than the 2 lunches I did get out for and I wish it was to different restaurants but alas, it wasn't.

We went to Border Grill for both our lunches. Not cheap and certainly not the best margaritas by any means, I find Border Grill to be an above average lunch spot. I had the fish tacos one day and the rock shrimp tacos the next. Both were excellent, although I preferred the rock shrimp better. Both had a delicious mix of cucumber jicama slaw and had a nice spice to them, especially the rock shrimp. The Beer battered cod tacos were really very good I just preferred the sautéed rock shrimp better. And both days we shared the steak tacos in the middle of the table which worked out great for 6 guys. They were delicious, with loads of ingredients (great chips, black beans, steak-from what I can tell was skirt, although for some reason I never asked...might have been the 1000 or so Coronas-, corn, green onion, cheese, sour cream, guacamole... ). All in all a GREAT lunch spot that consistently hits high notes.
