Unique, not typical Tex-Mex...

...but there was too much cilantro in everything and I think the menu could include a greater variety. I think it would be a good, lively, upbeat place for drinks, but it is not my favorite eatery.

Walking by one warm afternoon, 7 months pregnant and very suddenly needed a restroom as tends to happen at that stage. The restaurant was nearly empty. The hostess started to direct me to the restroom and I was halfway across the room when either a manager or owner came up and told me I could not use the restroom unless... More

Very surprised by how tasty the Mexican food was. If you want a change from German food this is the place to go. I had the Green sauce on my pulled pork Enchilada. Very delicate taste. Husband had the Enchilada with the Mole sauce. He loved it. Will definitively come back. They had outdoor seating that looked lovely for the... More

I love this place. I won't go to Leavenworth without eating here. I highly recommend the habanero shrimp, but be warned, it does have a kick :). My 7 year old daughter won't let us leave town without eating a meal here either! Its where the locals eat!

The food and service was amazing. But it was dinner time and the restaurant was packed. We were seated at a table right next to the door so everytime someone came in you would feel a rush of freezing air come in. Also there was a group of people seated behind us so close there was hardly any room to... More

Great place for drinks and dinner. Spouse had the 3 little pigs, excellent. Daughter and I shared a mission burrito with chicken also excellent. Had the warm flour chips with guacamole. Guacamole simple and fresh. Salsa bar very good choices and flavor. Did not have dessert. Service was excellent atmosphere comfortable. Would recommend and return.

The food is an excellent blend of the best that Latin culture has to offer. South picks and chooses the best of the regional Latin dishes, and offers them all. The quality of the food was great, but the price reflects that. Dinner for two ran about $70 after tax+tip, which was more than I had hoped. We started with... More

A very good southwestern-flare restaurant in Leavenworth is a refreshing change. We had the veggie tacos, chicken enchiladas and a few cocktails (Pisco sour is awesome!). We enjoyed all of our food and thought the service was great. We sat in the bar, which perhaps made our wait shorter as the place was packed! I recommend and will totally go... More

Great food, a little loud inside - may have been the drunk crowd around us. Excellent service and drink menu. This was a great place to enjoy something other than snitzel and brautwurst.
