My husband and I were visiting Leavenworth for the weekend. South was recommend to us for dinner. The food was good. Very good guacamole and chips as an appetizer. We shared the carnitas plate. Lots of food and very tasty. Nice atmosphere with seating inside and out.

After all the Barvarian environment, I wanted something different for lunch. The Argentine steak caught my eye on the posted menu. It was just so-so and definitely not from Argentina. Service was good, the value reasonable for Leavenworth, and the atmosphere was fine. Next time I'm here, I will order something other than the steak.

Not interested in the plentiful German/Bavarian food, we were looking for something different. South was the answer. Both of us had tacos. The fish tacos were excellent, as were the beef tacos. Almost thought I was back in the Southwest. Atmosphere is sunny and bright. Would definitely go again.

This place was the busiest place in town, had to wait a half hour when most other restaurant were empty. Everyone enjoyed their entrée. The tortilla soup was excellent, filed with chicken. Loud atmosphere, not good place to visit.

Great food, great atmosphere, great cocktails, great staff, good location. Nothing to dislike. Nice change of pace from brats and beer!

We went to South twice on our vacation in Leavenworth. We really enjoyed this place! I had the fish tacos both times. My husband had the steak quesadilla and some other dish I am having trouble remembering. All of them were fantastic. Do take the time to get their chips and guacamole as well as go to their salsa bar.... More

It turns out that this is where several of our friends eat while in Leavenworth...we found out after posting pictures. The menu is an expected list of the cliche Mexican dishes, but the food is well prepared and delicious. The interior is nicely designed, as well.

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

...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.

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
