It might be counterintuitive to eat Hispanic cuisine in a faux Bavarian town but South defies expectations. Take it from this southern-California raised woman who lived in Guadalajara, Mexico for two years, the food at South is delicious! My fav ~ the chicken enchiladas topped with roasted tomatillo sauce. My suggestion, ask if you can substitute the frijoles borrachos for the pintos. The margaritas are great too.

Gail, as a SoCal transplant, I'm pleased our latin cuisine surpasses your expectations and you left SOUTH happy and satisfied! Great choice on ordering the chicken enchiladas, and we can't forget about the tasty margaritas -- those are quite a fan favorite. I'm looking forward to your next visit.

Thanks so much,
Price, Owner

Recently we visited Leavenworth, Washington. Having visited here several times in the past because my father resided in nearby Wenatchee. Leavenworth is a Bavarian themed town which is a unique and very enjoyable place to visit. Especially for their annual Fall Festival or Oktoberfest. The Fall Festival features a very nice parade beginning with a children's parade with youngsters dressed in numerous types of costumes. The mainstream parade features many floats and bands from around the region. The festivities also include a Bavarian band playing waltzes and polkas in the Bavarian/German tradition and a platform where some dressed in Bavarian styled costumes as well as the public can dance to the lively tunes. If shopping is the tune you prefer to dance to, you can't beat the wonderful specialty shops including The Music Box and the Christmas shop. Clothing shops, restaurants, ice cream parlors, and even a specialty shop for your favorite pets can be found here. This is one of my favorite places to visit whenever we come to Washington State. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling through the Wenatchee area.

We've gotta say, Brent, you describe our little town so well it's almost like you live here! So, as an honorary Leavenworth citizen, we invite you back for a meal anytime -- during festival season or any season. See ya then!

Cheers,
Price, Owner

Indulged in the chips & dip sampler & a mango margarita while waiting for our entrees. The combo of flour & corn tortilla chips were light & fresh, served with a trio of guacamole, warm black bean dip & a warm poblano dip - easily enough for 4-5 people. Main entrees included a pork enchilada with red sauce & a burrito bowl with carnitas & rice served over romaine lettuce. All the food was fresh & filling. Friendly staff & prompt service. South does not disappoint.

South has great food and a good family friendly environment. It is a little on the pricy side but worth it. One of the best restaurants in Leavenworth.

We went here as a large group for dinner and it was amazing! The highlight by far is the Basil Margarita...so good and refreshing. Don't let the color fool you, its heavenly!! I am a huge salsa fan and they do not disappoint.

The basil margarita is one of our most popular drinks -- you know how to pick 'em! I'm happy we were able to accommodate you and your large group and that everyone enjoyed their meals.

We would love to see you again soon.

'Til then,
