Lunch’er Adam Reports: New Border Grill Kiosk is For “Yuppies From the Westside”

Border Grill Stop

If you work Downtown, and are looking for a new lunch option, this could be good.  Last week Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken expanded the Border Grill brand once again (there are restaurants in Vegas and Santa Monica, and a truck of course) opening a kiosk on the NW corner of Wilshire and Figeroa.  According to NRN the kiosk is meant to make use of the truck’s “limited menu”, offering take out food to people who work and live in the area. Lunch’er “Adam” checked it out on Tuesday and was nice enough to send photos, and his opinion:

“Yuppies from the Westside, like me, will like it a lot.  My Mexican-American friends were skeptical of the prices but ultimately satisfied with the food.”

Check out the seating area, his carne asada taco platter, and the entire Border Grill Stop menu, after the jump…

“This is the seating area at 11:30. It got more crowded as it got closer to noon, but it looks like most people were getting takeout. One funny little thing – they’re using iPhones docked into handheld receipt printers to process credit cards.”

“The tacos were really tasty (great tortilla!) and quick, but it’s hard to pay $9.25 for two small tacos with rice and beans.”

Well, clearly it’s a better option than Chipotle- and perfect if you’re tired of Mendocino Farms and the $10 lunch special at Ciudad. (Plus it’s nice to not have to chase around the Border Grill Truck for some ceviche tacos!)
