We stopped into South on a very snowy Friday night for an early dinner. The place was already getting busy but we were seated and given menus/drinks right away. The menu is not extensive but it is varied and interesting. I had the Carnitas plate and my wife had the Relleno. Both were served in minutes and both were excellent.... More

We most often eat German food while visiting Leavenworth, but this last trip we wanted to try something different. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant as they also include other South America based foods. Everything was very fresh and quite tasty. We will definitely be adding this to the list of restaurants we eat at when visiting Leavenworth.

Six adults & 4 children visited South Sunday night during the Leavenworth Icicle fest. Good thing we had reservations, the line for dinner was out the door.

South has changed over the last year or so. The food is about the same, but the prices have climbed, and you now have to buy chips to go with the salsa. The food is alright, but not worth the prices.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your most recent trip to South. We're sorry that this time wasn't as good as you remembered. Since our opening, we've always offered the option of flour chips or corn chips as appetizers since so many of our meals already come with chips on the plate. Our house-made salsa... More
