    I have a Restaurant.com egift and would like to use it on one of the Mexican restaurants on the strip.

    I am looking at Border Grill, Hussong's Cantina & Taqueria, or Tacos and Tequila.

    Which one would you recommend.

    I don't have a recommendation, but I also don't see any of those listed as participating in the restaurant.com program...

    There are a number of threads on here praising T&T at luxor.

    Definitely T&T. I have eaten there probably six times and never had a bad meal

    Hussong's is terrible. You've been warned.

    +1. In addition, their huge selection of tequilas is amazing.

    That might just be generic certificate print. T and T doesn't have a prix fixe menu.

    You will want to look to see if your certificate covers alcohol if you're going to be drinking. Some of them do, some of them exclude alcohol.

    I love T and T, I've been at least 10 times, went twice during my last trip.

    Been to Hussong's at Mandalay Place about 6 times in the past 2 years. I love the fajitas and the margaritas.

    Border Grill if you can go for the weekend brunch. Amazing!

    Javier's at Aria; we had a great meal there last December. More upscale than Hussongs.

    I agree about Javier's being great, but it's a different animal than Hussong's. I'll go to Hussong's to watch a game and have a few beers and some appetizers. I'll go to Javier's to treat myself.

    Might want to check again. At least two are there, and I believe all three are...

    So, no love for Border Grill...of course, that's the one I picked up...I've read in the past that ManBay restaurants have a pretty good reputation (in general).

    Didn't LOVE the food at Hussong's but the Cadillac Margarita made with Don Julio was stellar! Fifteen bucks, I think.

    They do give out these cool bumper stickers at Hussong's.

    I am dying to try Border Grill as well as T & T; mostly the tequila menu!

    I am almost 100% that T&T does not include alcohol, that can be problematic.

    Border Grill is fantastic, especially the weekend brunch. Second on my Restaurant.com Mexican list would be El Segundo Del Sol. Prices about the same as T&T but alcohol is not excluded.

    My R.com voucher for T&T excludes alcohol..

    I've got a voucher for Hussongs also, but best i read a few more reviews before chosing that over T&T (not been to either!)

    Border Grill is awesome. I really enjoyed sitting outside and eating there. The food, service, and everything was great! El Segundo Sol right outside the Fashion Show Mall was also a really nice Mexican place. There's usually a thing for them on restaurant.com

    I'll second El Segundo Sol. Ate there last July and it was pretty good. I'll probably pick up another GC for when I head back this July.

    Groupon

    I see there is a groupon out there for Ronkin' Taco Mexican Grill. Is this a good Mexican Restaurant??
