The food was pretty good. I got a chile relleno and a burrito (...chicago style? Can't recall for sure), my wife just got a cheese quesadilla. It wasn't the best of anything, but it was all good. The queso was just OK. We kept having to ask for stuff (took a LONG time to get the salsa for our chips). They really don't have a "wait staff" per say. They have the woman who takes your order at the front counter and brings your food, but otherwise you're on your own. We had to keep asking for the salsa we ordered and I'm pretty sure we only got one order of chips, but paid for two. There were no drink refills (since you didn't have anyone waiting your table). We just had water, no cokes or anything. It's hard to criticize the service, I'm pretty sure the place was operating as intended, it's just a little different than anything I've ever done before.

Fresh, authentic Mexican food in a small, hidden, and clean facility. Not a lot of items on the menu, but what they make, they make well. And, if you're tired of the over-priced tourist places in Orlando, the Border Grill is the place to go for fresh, flavorful food at great prices.

This is a little hole in the wall restaurant in a strip mall. Only about 10 tables. We had to hunt for it. But, it was worth the hunt. Everything was cooked fresh & was authentic Mexican cuisine.
The menu was limited. However, what they do have. They do very well.

Very helpful staff, delicious food, very willing to work with gluten allergies. Some of the best Mexican food and service that I have ever had. Looks like a hole in the wall, but it's a great place to eat!
