My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals at South. I wish they would open a restaurant in Alaska!

Very central, easy to get a table. Inside and outside eating areas.Big menu, good Mexican food. Very tasty- we had a burrito in a bowl, burrito cubano and poblano chicken- all to be recommended.

This is a nice airy mainly Mexican restaurant with an outdoor courtyard. We had a great lunch of fish tacos. Good choices for vegetarians too and good service.
