Spent the weekend in Bavariaville with a friend who lives there. We were seated fairly quickly outside. Inside was super noisy! Although it was not super busy, it took over 30 minutes to even get a glass of water. Others were seated after us and got much better service. I don't think we smelled. As others have noted, a basket... More

We enjoyed our dinner at South. I thought the quality was better by far than most Mexican style eateries. The Basil Margarita was very unique and has inspired me to use my Basil in more ways. Dinner was good. The pork was nice and it's side dish accompaniments were good, even the beans which were whole beans and not heavy... More

Waited 30+ minutes even though they had tables open . Our waitress was inattentive, slow and forgetful. Had the shrimp burrito. Small but had good flavor. Pastor plate was very good. Homemade guacamole was delicious! They charge $5 for chips n salsa. Bit on the pricey side for Mexican food.

The location is right down town close to every thing. The food is unremarkable in ingredients and preparation.The restaurant space is not especially attractive either and some times you have to wait because of the shear amount of people in town. Most people assume that if there is a line the food must be good but this is not the... More

We went here for dinner on a Monday night and started with chips and salsa and the basil margaritas. The salsas were fresh and the margaritas were excellent. The "three little piggies" pork tacos had tender pork and came with drunken beans, rice and a delicious lime coleslaw. The others in our party also enjoyed cod in a caper tomato... More

I'm amazed South has not made it to TripAdvisor before this. The food is (as I said in the title) delicious, ample, economical and authentic. Did I mention healthy? Locals eat here. (We're visitors to our local grandchildren.) This is not a Tex/Mex restaurant; it is ceviche, fish tacos, enormous burritos. Choose your own salsas from the offerings on the... More
