We eat not only once but several times when we visit leavenworth. I'm of Hispanic derivation, trust me, my mother cooks THE BEST south of the borders' food. The refried beans are the dead giveaway, of a bad south of the border restuarant. South, passes with flying colors! The rice equals with the beans. Best rice as well. You'll never... More

Service was friendly. The food was very flavorful. It was a nice blend of South American flavors without being the same old boring Mexican food. I liked that they had a fully stocked bars. You could try one of their speicality drinks or order a Jack and Coke. The atmosphere was nice, clean, quite.

Four of us went to dinner at South and very much enjoyed the experience. The chips sampler was possibly my favorite, South has some great sauces to go with very good food. I had the carnitas plate and it was good but not great. Server was helpful and friendly. A great night and I would definitely go back to try... More

VERY expensive Mexican food. I ordered a small plate of two tostadas and it was excellent food but I think it was $14 for what should have been half that. Ca not recommend because of the menu prices

Thank Regina H
Cappy B, Owner at South, responded to this review

Hi Regina, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food, but are sorry that you were disappointed about the price. Our Two Tostada Plate is $11.95 for both lunch and dinner, $3.95 more for a side of our house-made cilantro-lime rice and Peruvian refried beans. While one of our lighter meal options, all meat options for our Tostadas are... More

We ate dinner there twice during our stay. The chips and the salsa bar were so delicious as an encore to the equally scrumptious south of the border type food. We enjoyed the different experiences of dining both inside and out on the patio. The coconut mojitos were delightful and refreshing. This is an excellent choice for couples, family, friend... More

Hi Kal! We are all so pleased to hear that you made it in over the summer and that you were able to enjoy the best of both worlds- indoors and outdoors at South! That Coconut Mojito special was definitely a hit during our hot summer temperatures in Leavenworth! Come see us once (or twice) next time you're in town!... More

South is not a Mexican restaurant-it's Andean....as in South America. We love their food and full bar as well. Their homemade salsas are fantastic and in the summer they have a cozy courtyard for outside dining. Worth going anytime!

I had the Carnitas and they were very good. I especially liked the drunken beans that come with the meals. I had a margarita that was good and then tried a Stinger that was supposed to be spicy. It wasn't spicy at all.

While I said fast in the title, the food is definitely not fast-food! I had the burrito cubano and my husband had the big wet monster burrito (carnitas). Both burritos were served quickly, tasted fresh and delicious. The monster burrito was served without any sides, but the cubano was served with cabbage salad and chips. We both liked the no... More
