We often drive the two hours to Leavenworth just to eat at South. The food is Latin/Mexican/South American and everything we've tried is excellent. My current favorite is the carnitas burrito bowl (you have your choice of meat or vegetarian), but I also love the...More

The food is great but love the chips and salsa. I had a spicy margarita, can't rember the name but it was delicious as well.

Thank mitchem19

The chips and salsa love you, too! We're pleased to hear you enjoyed everything you ordered. The STINGER (your spicy margarita) is always a hit -- come get another one soon. Thanks, and we can't wait to welcome you back! Until then, Price, Owner

We always come to South when we are in town, the food is good but the main draw is the strawberry basil margaritas. These are my wife's favorite.

First of all, no complimentary chips and salsa? Seriously??? That is a STAPLE at Mexican restaurants. No excuse. Sat in a half empty restaurant and had horrible service. 5 or so staff standing around doing nothing, and yet it takes 10 minutes and two requests...More

I'd like to apologize that you didn't receive our best during your meal -- we train our staff to make you feel like a priority. That said, we make our chips as a specialty in-house, which is why we do not have them as complimentary,...More

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