We frequent South of the Border often and the food is always great. The service is attentive without being overbearing. The prices are very reasonable for both food and drink. Dos Equis Amber on tap is a plus. Sandra is always our server and she does a wonderful job every time.

Food was delicious, fast and cheap. Drinks were extra large!! Just what we needed after a long car ride. I had the shrimp and grilled onion burrito, excellent. Salsa was fresh with lots of cilantro. Service was very good and they accommodated our special requests without hesitation. Party of 5 and we were all happy with our food.

This food is so tasty it's really hard to beat! We sometimes get caught up in the "chain" places and they're good, but the people who work in South of the Border have been there for years and years. They know you when you come in, and they're really happy to see you! The food is always fresh and good... More
