Try the drinks and chips!

I've visit South almost every time we go to Leavenworth because of the atmosphere and unique menu. The salsa bar is great and paired perfectly with the AMAZING homemade flour tortilla chips. Food can be hit and miss, but the drinks are always a delight. The Stinger and the blueberry margaritas are... read more

Had a late lunch with a party of four here today at the suggestion of friends who own property in the area. One person in our party has eaten here a few times and ordered her favorite red enchiladas with beans and rice and I had the same. We also had an order of tacos and a pork burrito. Our... More

Wow this place was delicious. They have very affordable options that are delicious. Great drinks too and festive atmosphere. I'd say it's the best dining option in Leavenworth!

This dining experience was OK but not the best I experienced during my holiday. Much of the menu had a Mexican influence and this type of food doesn't always look great on a plate, the taste was fine and the portions were reasonably large. The waiting staff were attentive and the outdoor seating area was secluded and sheltered from the... More

So glad we "found" this place thanks to positive Trip Advisor reviews! I know from past experience to forego the so-called German food in Leavenworth, but other options are limited. South is the go-to spot! We enjoyed dining on the outside patio, but the interior is fresh and pleasant, too. I was a bit taken aback initially at having to... More

We came here on our anniversary. We ate out on the patio and the décor is nice. This place is not regular Mexican food, it has a flare and twist all of its own. There is a wide selection of drinks and they really put together great flavors and thought into their menu items . This place is a must.

Visited a few times and found there to be a difference in all matters South every time I stopped in. Food is pretty good and I recommend it above Los Comperos just down the street. Safe bet to eat here and not be disappointed.

To start out with, we loved our waiter! Justin was amazing! The menu at South is pretty diverse and he made a couple suggestions that were spot on. We had the Big Wet Monster Burrito with Carne Asada, a Mission Burrito, and Fish Tacos. We also started with fresh flour chips and guacamole with fresh salsa from the salsa bar.... More
