We went for lunch and found the food pretty good. Wife had the enchiladas and she said it was very tasty. I had fish and chips. Fish was lightly battered, not greasy, and home cut fries were great. Will go again on our next visit...More

It was very good. Plenty of cheese and enchilada sauce. Raw onions are also added. You can ask for hot or mild as well. Very filling and satisfying. I love this place!

These are your basic ground beef tacos (& enchiladas & tostadas & quesadillas) served with fresh lettuce tomato and good salsa. On special four for $4.95 when we visited. Be sure to order a side of yummy guacamole to kick it up a notch. Round...More

I live next door and I won't go. Been there a few times when I 1st moved here, Yuc! I would never consider this to be authentic, or tex-mex for that matter. You might as well go to taco bell.

I am new to the area and have yet to find a great Mexican restaurant around here. South of the Border sounded promising but was nothing but a big disappointment. The refried beans were disgusting, the "hot" sauce tasted more like marinara sauce than salsa,...More

Good Mexican food is difficult to find in Maine. It's impossible at 'South of the border'. I ordered the enchilada dinner. I got raw tasting corn tortillas wrapped around unseasoned, dry hamburger with a sprinkle of cheese and a few bits of raw chopped onion...More
