Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay’s only Las Vegas restaurant is Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace, delivering his iconic bold Southwestern flair.
Mesa Grill Las Vegas has been included on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot 100 list. Just as striking as the food at Mesa Grill is the atmosphere.
Designed by renowned restaurant designer David Rockwell, the open space at this Las Vegas restaurant features rich and vibrant colors and textures that are reminiscent of the American Southwest.

This Las Vegas restaurant’s proximity to Mexico gives Mesa Grill access to some of that country's highest-quality tequila and mezcal offerings, and the expansive wine list has a global reach yet maintains an emphasis on top American wines.
A cocktail menu features signature drinks such as the Mesa Pisco Sour and Bitter Frenchie and, of course, the perfectly mixed Mesa Grill Margarita. Taste Chef Bobby Flay’s bold Southwestern flavors at Mesa Grill Las Vegas, exclusively at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
WHAT TO EAT AT THIS SOUTHWESTERN RESTAURANT
- Tiger Shrimp + Roasted Corn Tamale
- Spice rubbed Pork Tenderloin
- Lobster Tacos
- Blue Corn Crusted Halibut
- We have built our Tequila selection with only 100% Blue Agave tequilas. For our restaurant, it is not about having the biggest selection, but the finest. Our signature margaritas include the Mesa Margarita, Prickly Pear Margarita and the White Peach Margarita. In addition we serve the Partida Margarita, which is made with the simplest of ingredients; tequila, lime, agave nectar and water—no triple sec or sucrose of any kind—which results in an incredibly balanced and unique flavor.
Bobby Flay discovered his culinary identity at 17 working as a cook at Joe Allen’s. Allen was so impressed with Flay that he paid the young cook’s tuition to The French Culinary Institute. Chef Flay first discovered the sweet heat of Southwestern ingredients working with Jonathan Waxman at Buds and Jams. Jerome Kretchmer offered Bobby Flay an opportunity at Mesa Grill, which opened in 1991.
Much-hyped food TV star" Bobby Flay exports his "enjoyable" NYC Southwesterner to Caesars via this "top-quality" venue where the "spicy," "unusual" cooking is a perfect match for the "glitzy" decor, "nonrushed" service and "upbeat" scene; while a few "don’t understand the allure" of "eating in the middle of a casino" for most this is "real-deal" dining from a "can-do-no-wrong" chef.
Other than the famous chef that resides at Mesa Grill Restaurant Vegas, they have a few good qualities that you can really enjoy. Like, the food, the real reason you came. They have the know on all of the best tequilas in Mexico, apparently since Vegas is so close or something. But Mesa Grill Vegas has great cocktails, many of which are as creative as the food.
Bobby Flay's 8,800-square-foot Mesa Grill houses a 28-seat bar and lounge, a three-tiered dining room and a bustling exhibition kitchen. The signature blue corn pancake appetizer with barbecued duck and tiger shrimp with a roasted garlic-corn tamale and corn-cilantro sauce, served for lunch and dinner, is a fine example of Flay’s vibrant cuisine.
