Nice space with tasty food

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.

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

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

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.
