Adding to the annoyance of a surcharge for water is the fact that this added charge was not on the menu. Since this was first mentioned, we've come to realize that Border Grill doesn't monitor their Las Vegas twitter account and they haven't responded to the initial call out. This morning, we asked the general Border Grill twitter account if they are still doing this and have not responded yet.
This is appalling and it's less about the money than it's about disclosure. Unfortunately, we're used to hotels and airlines adding on fees and charging for whatever they can, but we're not used to it at restaurants and we'd at least like to know about it in advance. We haven't been to Border Grill in a while and this doesn't make us want to return, no matter how good the food is.
