“Cool looking place with awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

What a disappointment. Great atmosphere, but the food is bland, lame chain uninspired food. It starts weak, and goes downhill. If you think Taco Bell is authentic, you will be right at home here.

“Good Food and Large Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

We really enjoyed South of the Border. It was our first time there so our waiter went over the menu before we ordered. The food was served quickly and piping hot. Excellent food and service.

“not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

The food just lacks the local flavor that is found in this area. Definitely a chain restaurant gone bad. Skip it and go for more of the family restaurants in the area.
