This is one of our favorite places to eat as a family, so much that the staff They don't hesitate to accommodate large parties and service is always friendly and fast. The food is very good and plates come out steaming hot every time. We recommend this place to many people and will keep coming back!

Had some good authentic Mexican food. The Tortilla Soup was homemade and very good. The Pupusas were also good as were the carne asada tacos. We enjoyed the meal.

Some of the best Mexican food I have ever ate. It's hard to choose what to eat, because everything is yummy. Can't wait to go back.

We came here to eat after a long day at Busch Gardens because it was very close to our hotel. Everything that my party ordered was delicious! I'd definitely recommend the Burritos de Camaron (shrimp burritos). You get large portions and the prices are very reasonable. The margaritas were very good as well. If we are ever back in this...

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.
