good food just try and avoid it when its packed

this place is great, we've never been disappointed but it can get slammed. With all the great places to eat don't kill yourself trying to get in when its packed as its not as enjoyable. If its not crowded the food is great, the drinks are tasty and the service is good.

There is a lot of choices for gourmet Latin food. The sauté green beans were a great appetizer. I had the Fish Veracruz was awesome. The flavor was amazing. I loved the coleslaw & black beans that came with it too. My husband had the carnitas. He loved them. The service was excellent! Highly recommend!

This restaurant has a very unique flair on Latin food. I had the carnitas, which were excellent, and my wife raved about the Fish Veracruz. We will definitely be back!

You would think Mexican food would not be good in Leavenworth, Washington well you're wrong because it IS great! Ordered 3 plates and all three were great. The 1st plate was the "Carnitas" plate was very good. We ordered the pulled pork for the carnitas. The next plate was the "Steak Tacos". Another great meal. And lastly, we ordered a... More

Excellent all around. Coming from an Island, we had a decent time looking at all the mountains and following the river to get to Leavenworth from Seattle, but our true favorite was eating dinner at South! the prices are a little higher than you'd get for a sit down Latin restaurant in Seattle, but through each dish we felt like...

South was recommended to us and as we had previously checked over the menu online, we were looking forward to a wonderful dinner our first evening in Leavenwoth. We both order the carnitas plate and were very disappointed. The "succulent" pork was anything but. Instead the meat was very dry, over cooked and not particularly fresh, as if it had... More

Many different kinds of hot sauce along with guacamole and the flour tortilla chips are the best. My favorite entrée is the vegetarian chili Rellanos.

I recently had a delicious taco salad at South. Best I've ever had until I got to the bottom. I ate what looked like a grilled cherry tomato. It was the HOTTEST pepper I've ever tasted. So painful and I like hot food. I would've asked for milk if I could've spoken. Did it get in there by accident? I... More

I've eaten and had drinks here twice, now. The second time in, I forgot that the first time there, the food was good but the drinks sucked. Things didn't change for the second time around only this time I didn't even think the food was as good as the first time around...(2 years previously) Weather permitting, there is a lovely... More
