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

Had lunch at South when vacationing in Leavenworth with family. We were seated promptly in the main room and our waitress was nice and efficient. The chips and different home made salsa were excellent and their margaritas and beers on tap (I had a Pacifico) are very decent. Nothing fancy but relaxed atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed the food (I had the... More

We had a great meal. I had the Big Wet Monster Burrito and my wife had the shrimp enchiladas. Both were excellent! The Basil Daisy Margherita was like no other Margherita we've ever had. Highly recommend it. Josue was an excellent bartender and we enjoyed visiting with him. Good luck at WSU Josue!

Went there for lunch on the recommendation of the hotel desk lady. This is a small restaurant that specializes in South American dishes. Four of us went for lunch, we all ordered something different. I had the Three Taco special, each with a distinct filling and each delicious. I forget what everyone else ordered but we were all in agreement... More

My wife and I decided to eat here because of the great reviews. Nothing we experienced merited any positive reviews. It was happy hour with drinks 1/2 off so my wife orders the strawberry/rhubarb margarita special, only to be told--at 4:30 in the afternoon--that they just changed bartenders and they're all out of the syrup but the bartender would create...

Had the fish tacos and they were very good. Food is very fresh and they have a varied menu. I welcome a restaurant like this because it is different from the typical heavy Leavenworth bratwurst menu. You can have a heavy meal here but also can find something lighter. Good drinks also.

Definitely geared to the tourist crowd. Drinks are small and expensive. I would suggest Casa Grande in Cashmere for good Mexican food.
