We had not planned on stopping there but saw it on the way to eat anywhere. The parking lot was full so we turned around. The first thing that impressed me was their ice tea. It was actually tea tasting like tea instead of colored...More

We just ate there for the first time. It's a Sunday after church and the place was packed. I've never seen a wait staff work so hard and fast! The food was delicious as was the desert. We will be going back!

I have been going to "The Border" for over 50 years. Excellent service. Delicious food. Many people think it is a Mexican restaurant because of the name, but South of the Border is south of the Mississippi state line (border) in Louisiana.

My wife and I visited this restaurant 4/29/17. The service and food was great and the menu was extensive for the location. We enjoyed our meal and the service, the portions were huge. We will certainly return as we have a camp in the area.

Good Mexican Restaurant for the area, I have eaten there many times and have had no problems. The chips and salsa taste homemade, and I always ask for a second helping.

1/2 Fried Chicken-- ranks as the best I have ever eaten. The Fried Shrimp are just as good. Helen is an awesome host.

Ms. Helen and her staff are wonderful! We only live one-half mile away and go there about once a week. Wonderful fried chicken, fried shrimp/ oysters and shrimp cocktail! Try the catfish grilled or fried! The best mustard green and butter beans are my favorites....More

We live close to this restaurant so we go fairly often. We enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the homemade desserts. Fried chicken, onion rings, hamburger steak, flat iron steak all good choices. Fried green tomatoes with crawfish sauce is really good also.

Because it is not south of that boarder but just south of the Mississippi boarder. Wilkinson County in Mississippi was "dry" for many years so its residents needed to travel down to Louisiana to pass a good time. South of the boarder is just inside...More
