Six adults & 4 children visited South Sunday night during the Leavenworth Icicle fest. Good thing we had reservations, the line for dinner was out the door. Our table was ready early and service was prompt. The fish tacos were a hit along with the different burritos. I had the carnita filled burrito and it was delicious & huge. The... More

South has changed over the last year or so. The food is about the same, but the prices have climbed, and you now have to buy chips to go with the salsa. The food is alright, but not worth the prices.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your most recent trip to South. We're sorry that this time wasn't as good as you remembered. Since our opening, we've always offered the option of flour chips or corn chips as appetizers since so many of our meals already come with chips on the plate. Our house-made salsa... More

We had family in town from South Korea. We had steak, fish and chicken dishes for lunch. All were extremely flavorful. Our visitors were pleased with our choice. Once again the staff was very friendly and how about that Basil Daisy ( drink )!

South is a yummy Mexican restaurant that serves fresh food! They are unlike typical American Mexican restaurants as the food is not "heavy." They homemake their chips and tortillas. They have a salsa bar with fresh salsa that varies from medium to super spicey. Items are served with Peruvian beans and a delicious slaw. Their meat is slow cooked and... More

While the grilled corn was ok, my fish tacos were inedible. The black beans were seasoned well. What saved them is the amazing broth from the tortillas soup. Perfection. As we're their homage chips.

I ordered the 3 little pigs, which were fine, but not fantastic. Having recently returned from Palm Springs and enjoying some really delicious Mexican food, I found South to be a bit on the bland side. My friend who has very specific dietary restrictions really loves the menu and the food here, so we usually stop during our annual trip... More

You have to have the Big Wet Monster! SO good! The hot buttered rum was also incredible! Great prices, great food, great service. Thank you for not hiking your prices during tourism season. Out of town guests really appreciate not being gouged.
