09/10 Warm taco chips and 3 excellent dips were served. Ann’s entrée was a chile relleno (a roasted poblano pepper, manchego cheese, panela, cotija cheese), tomatillo salsa, Spanish rice and refried black beans. I settled on Yucatan Pork - achiote pork roasted in a banana leaf, grilled pickled onion, guacamole, fried plantains, refried black beans, Spanish rice and 3 handmade corn tortillas. We have enjoyed both of these entrees in the past and were not disappointed this evening. I had a few extra dollars left to use on our gift certificate so we ordered half slices of flan and a tres leches cake with passion fruit and prickly pear sauce.
09/07 We had an Open Table reservation at Mary and Sue’s place for 7PM with a request for a table with a view of the outside patio. Our view was better than anticipated as we were seated on the patio, but the night was comfortably warm so we registered no complaint. The complimentary taco chips and two salsas were a cut above your typical cantina. A special menu was offered in celebration of Mexican Independence Day so I chose (by pointing) the manchamanteles – even the waitress admitted being unable to pronounce it. As it turned out the kitchen was out of this stew-type dish, so both Ms. Westie and I settled for chili rellenos - roasted poblano peppers stuffed with manchego, panela, and cotija cheeses served with both roja and tomatillo salsas, two types of rice, nd black beans. The poblano peppers were super sized and the amount of cheese used in the filling was over-the-top, but tasty nonetheless. I used a $20 coupon from one of the freebie magazines to ease the financial burden, but we were $8 short of the required $50 tab, not a problem as we shared a large slice of tres leches.
04/07 I had secured advance reservations using Opentable, but requested patio seating on our arrival on this beautiful spring evening. Our request for ice water, tap is fine thank you, was soon filled and we received warm taco chips accompanied by 3 salsas (tomatillo, chipotle and some type of fruit) – all were excellent. We both ordered the cochinta pobil - achiote marinated pork slow roasted in banana leaf with cinnamon, grilled onions, black beans, homemade tortillas, rice and plantain orange salsa.
This was our final dinner in Vegas for this trip. We are ""foodies"", and with the publicity of the chef being a Top Chef Master we were very excited to try out this restaurant. Sadly, this place was horrible. Not one of our party of five enjoyed their meal. My order was the corn tamales. The server let me know that these were sweeter than most tamales, which I was hoping for as it would be something a little different. Well - it was definitely something I'd never had before. It tasted like someone cranked open a can of creamed corn and poured it into a corn husk. I couldn't even finish one without the gag reflex. It was so unbelievable that others in my party wanted to try a bit and their response was, ""Oh my God, it's just creamed corn!"" DO NOT dine there!!!
I had high hopes for this place but was disappointed to the point of needing to warn others. This place may have been great at one time but something is going on behind the scenes now. We just ate there for dinner last night and couldn't believe how over-rated it is for the poor food quality and service. Our group ordered quite a variety of plates--skirt steak, corn tamales, chili rellenos, enchilada, and taquitos. How can you screw this ALL up so poorly right? The tamales, I swear, were out of a creamed corn can; skirt steak was lukewarm and so tough that we all tasted it and decided shoe leather was better; chili rellenos, which I love, were soggy and had no real flavor...a huge disappointment for me; the taquitos were so crunchy from being dried out; and the enchilada tasted as though it was all beans and nothing else. We won't be eating here again and wish we hadn't given the cost of bad food. As much as I wish the TOP CHEF winning chef the best, I doubt anyone with much talent is involved in the day to day operations any longer. This place is now a bust like so many of your every-day, run-of-the mill restaurants; sadly:(

Rumjungle is a fun restaurant in Mandalay Bay, known for its selection of 225 rums in the world?s largest rum bar. It serves open fire cooked met in the Brazilian style where they bring unlimited quantities of various varieties right to the table. I happen to like this style a lot, but this particular restaurant was no better than others of a similar vein. As for the food, here in Las Vegas I prefer Samba Gill in The Mirage, or Yolie?s which is just off the strip on Paradise. But the ambiance at Rumjungle is best. Things change at 11 p.m. though. Rumjungle turns in to a very fun night club, featuring Salsa music and dancing. They even have professionals to help teach for those who are interested.
After reading such great reviews of this restaurant, we were somewhat disappointed in our first trip to Border Grill. The chips and salsa were lacking originality and tasted much more like tomato paste than salsa. The poblano chicken enchiladas were great and are highly recommended. Don't waste your time with the chile rellenos. They arrived a tthe table lukewarm and became soggy in the sauce they were sitting on. Have had much better chile rellenos for half the price. Overall, it is a nice atmosphere, but somewhat overrated. When spending this kind of money on mexican/latin fare, we were disappointed in the food.
This is a place you should visit for the bar and not the food. The bar is spectacular and drinks are great. Of course, you must try the many falvors of rum from all over the world. For food, stick to one of the 20 other places to eat at the hotel. But be sure to have some rum before or after your meal!. Try the pyrat rum, it's our favorite. This is an upscale bar, so the drinks will be more pricey than at other places, but you get what you pay for. Don't visit this bar if only drinking beer, visit this bar for their specialty cocktails and rum.

Went with friends who heard great thing about it. Everything lacked..taste, value, ambiance, service. Thank goodness we didn't order from the fire pit like our friends. They spent twice as much as us...(125.00 per couple)...The meat was either overcooked, or under cooked and our selection which was crab cakes and chicken skewers was tastless, and the chicken was more like jerky. Our drinks were very tiny and weak and cost 9 buck a piece. I would never waste money there again.

I'm in and out of Vegas a lot for business... and loved my lunch at Border Grill. The weather was stunning so out door seating was a plus and on a tight schedule so the timing was perfect!! The gaucamole was fantastic as well as the shrimp and chirzo chili relleno special. Its a must visit! I will be back.
