Nice, friendly staff. Some of the food was good - fish tacos for example - the rest of what we had was barely acceptable, soggy baked potatoes and "ketchupy" reheated ribs... Don't think I'll be going back anytime soon!

The Mexican food here is excellent the restaurant is rather large and can hold a lot of people more than it can park cars which can be a problem. Authentic food very good homemade nachos and salsa are excellent. And they have a very nice bar area.

This restaurant offered a very cozy atmosphere . Had a very large separated bar area . Menu was original. Food was ok- not true ethnic but it did the job - satisfying the appetite. Had the habanero spiced wings . They weren't as painful to digest as it seemed .

Never the same, food quality varies, some days better than others. Service is similar, sometimes great, some times not. Drink prices are a bit high for Gardner, but limited options in the town may be a factor. Menu needs to be renewed, better choices.

If you want a really good steak salad, this is the place to go. Their food is always fresh and tasty. This is a wonderful place to go out with friends for a drink or two.. maybe three, or more. They have Ladies Night every Wednesday and the drinks are only $5, which is just lovely. So I recommend you... More

I hate to be that person, but I must speak the truth. Every time my husbands family rolls into town I'm forced to eat here to my chargrin. The food surprisingly gets worse each time, I am truly blown away. The menu has changed countless times with no perceived improvement by mouth and upper intenstines have been accousted enough times... More

I seldom order the entrees, so my review is based on the apps and the oh so heavenly margaritas. The Black Jack margarita is the best concoction they serve. I've tried them at other places and no dice. The waitstaff is usually pretty darn good and the owner, Bill is very nice!

Friendly staff and an interesting assortment of margaritas make Southside a good place to stop for a drink. I would recommend the Black Jack margarita. The food is not authentic Mexican but many of their appetizers are better than serviceable. All entrees and appetizers are over-spiced which is not a problem for people like me who like spicy food but... More

I have many favorites at this restaurant! The tacos, enchiladas and fajitas are great! If you want a light bite, you can order a single item "ala carte". We've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal!
