Obviously, Mexico East and West are set there to attract the tourist from the Motor Inn and Campground. As such they're filled with Trinkets and knickknacks and doodads that are designed to suck money from the tourists pockets. That's not to say this is a bad thing , it is just exactly what you would expect at a smaller rural... More

If you're looking for some things that you can't find anywhere else, this is a nice place. The prices are great for those who are in other states, however, in North and South Carolina we think they are average.

If you stop for gas or toilet this place is at back end of parking lot. Lots of Mexican stuff. Inexpensive items, but not bargain prices. If you need to walk and stretch your legs this place will meet your needs. The store is really bi, but in 30 minutes of browsing nothing caught my eye.

It's a "South of the Border" gift shop - not a "Mexican" shop as the name implies. Very large souvenir shop, Loaded with inventory - mostly overpriced imported stuff but nothing from Mexico. Nice place to browse around & stretch the legs while taking a rest from driving I-95.

Very strange setting of stores and shops. It's a nice break from the road to check out some quirky stuff, and to find some touristy deals.

Anything you want with a South of the Border imprint can be found here. This has got to be one of the largest gift shops I've seen! ATM (cards accepted only with $10 minimum) and bathrooms can be found here as well. Sure it's kitschy but that's the charm. Worth a look even if you don't buy.

So many funny things in here and quirky gifts. We spent under $10 and left with 2 happy kids. 2 hours later, they are still playing with their alligator pinchers!

The shops here at south of the border are pretty cool. they have a ton of stuff in there but it's pretty expensive. i purchased a couple of bumper stickers and left it at that! fun to poke around through the stores and see what they have. just be prepared to spend $$$ if you want any souvenirs!

Why anyone would even stop in this place, I dont know. There is nothing in this place that that makes you want to buy anything, unless you are looking for cheap, overpriced souvenirs. Dont waste your time stopping here.
