Now trending from chef/owners Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, (Border Grill) is an all-day California canteen and Mexican pub located in the Gateway at 19th and Santa Monica. The modern, casual dining spot is
definitely one of our favorites! I cannot thank the wonderful staff for the friendliness and excellent service that we experienced tonight. I'll get to the food in a minute, but service is half the game in my book. First off, I love the decor, and secondly,
the food is magnificent! I'd have to say, hands down the guacamole is the best in town! I am very picky about my guacamole, and honestly could eat this one every day! Chips are hot, fresh, and salty and highly addictive! I'm also embarrassed to say that I
devoured the entire plate of Chicken Chicharrones, crispy chicken skin with crudités, chili lime, blue cheese, and avocado tomatillo sauce. The skins were slightly spicy, but entirely yummy! We also went crazy for the best skirt steak that we've eaten
in a long time. I'm not a skirt steak fan, but had a bite of this incredible meat. It was garlic, citrusy and served with broccolinI, charred onion, organic corn tortillas, and calabacitas (squash). The steak was juicy and flavorful and we ate every bite.
We also had the chicken Norteno which was a grilled half chicken, enchiladas Rojas, gualjillo (chile) sauce, cojita cheese, and apple herb salad. This was another amazing dish with juicy, tender chicken and a lot of it! Needless to say we were too full
for dessert! We will definitely be back and we're bringing all of our friends too! Socalo 1920 Santa Monica Blvd. Santa Monica (310) 451-1655 Check for various hours.
