Stay and relax. The wait staff will bring you your food in good time after you've ordered it and you can sit upstairs, outside, or in a smaller more intimate room for small groups. The food is fresh and there's an excellent selection of beverages, including Mexican Coke, which is not easy to find in the UP! The access and... More

I was starving and grabbed a quesadilla and chips with border sauce to go. Just as good as 10 years prior when I last ate here.

There is no wonder why this place is always busy! Their food is excellent. Sure it is a clean, modern, friendly place, but what makes it is the food. Everything on the menu is done right, seriously you cannot go wrong with a trip to the border grill!

We happened across this place and were thrilled! They have excellent white fish tacos that are delicious! On Friday nights they have a local beer battered fish taco. YUM!! It was so good, we tried to go back the next day, but they are closed on Sunday.

This is just an average fast-food Mexican place. The food was fine, the service was fine, but there is nothing special about the place. If you want a quick meal and happen to be close by this is a fine choice.
