“A trip to Leavenworth isn't complete without a meal at South!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We come to Leavenworth often and every time a trip to South is on our list. We have even eaten here twice in one day, that's how much we love it!

Definitely try the chip and dip sampler - the flour tortillas are yummy and their guacamole is the best.

My favorite drink is the blood orange margarita and any of their entrees with pork.

“Good Mexican food in a Bavarian town”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

If you need a change of scenery from schnitzels and sausages, this is the place. I would recommend the greens beans.

“Small Portions, Big Price”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I was in the mood for steak and South was recommended to us. My steak seemed like it was barely more than a few bites and the majority of my plate was a tortilla cut into four pieces, upon which my steak had rested. The steak was good, but just too small a portion. I ended up eating all of my boyfriend's zucchini corn pudding, which is the only thing I would go back there for. The Zucchini Corn pudding was excellent and I had to look up a recipe.
The boyfriend had the sweet potato enchiladas and they were okay. I just expected more for the price we were paying. We ended up having to have a second dinner because we were so hungry an hour after we left South.

Had a very nice meal late at night for Leavenworth (10:00 pm), good service, but the basil margarita was fantastic! Will go back for sure.

We ate here on the advice of my brother and he didn't steer us wrong. The food was fantastic! We will definitely eat here again.
