Frequent visitor to Leavenworth and wanted something different this time around so visited South. Even on a busy weekend was seated quickly. For starters, this is NOT a Mexican restaurant. I've seen so many posts bashing it over this and no where does it state...More

We love going to South for the Cubano Burrito because they are so large and full of tasty and delicious flavor (beans, rice, sweet plaintain bananas, and more!) all inside. It is our favorite dish on the menu. Definitely worth the 125 mile drive from...More

South has been one of the go to spots for our group for years. This was my first time as I always thought why go to Mexican when you are in a Bavarian town. The food was OK, nothing special but what threw me for...More

I want to apologize that your visit wasn't as amazing as it could've been. While we do charge for chips, we feel that the effort and quality we put into them justify the costs. Still, it seems we could've given you a better Latin American...More

Try the Street corn, it's amazing. The bartender we have had on the weekends is awesome. Went back on a weekday and we were disappointed with the margaritas. Food is good, salsa bar, corn tortillas, and the Peruvian beans are really good.
