There is simply nothing good abt this food and its preparation, far too expensive for what you get. The owners do not, i repeat, do not care abt what "locals" think. We have traveled extensively around the world, and found only one little restaurant on the "South Island" of New Zealand where the arrogance and lack of care for the customer was equal to "South".

My husband I came here because we needed a break from the lovely, but heavy German treats we'd been eating. The food was so good and so fresh with plenty of yummy veggies! ;)

We are no-fat vegans and South in Leavenworth is one place going off the trail and having a little fat is worthwile. We start with a basil margarita and the green bean appetizer. The menu has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options and everything is amazing. Big disappointment that the food truck is not around for my brother's wedding in Plain this summer, but South is definitely on the agenda whenever we get to Leavenworth. Those salsas!

The food was awesome. We tried a couple dishes that were different then the usual taco or burrito. We were not disappointed. The salsa bar is small but the salsa is excellent. The items we got were a bit on the small side but good. We were a bit disappointed that there was no complimentary chips... so we bought the chips and salsa. We will eat there again when visiting Leavenworth

South has great Mexican food but can't strictly be called a Mexican restaurant. The menu choices include selections from the American Southwest, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Our favorites are the green beans, the chicken tacos, the flour tortilla chips (with a creamy black bean dip), the burritos, and the rest of the menu. After a dozen visits to South, no regrets. They have Mack & Jack on tap. The decor is cool and creative. The ambiance is vibrant and loud and not at all tranquil due in part to a packed floor plan and a semi-open kitchen. The attitude is hip with a bit of swagger and yet somehow it feels loveably earnest. The overall effect is a gregarious, non-traditional vibe.
