Every time we stay in leavenworth south is a must! The food tastes very fresh and service is fast. The outdoor patio is very cozy and they are very accommodating to children.

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. Our table was ready early and service was prompt. The fish tacos were a hit along with the different burritos. I had the carnita filled burrito and it was delicious & huge. The... More

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

We had family in town from South Korea. We had steak, fish and chicken dishes for lunch. All were extremely flavorful. Our visitors were pleased with our choice. Once again the staff was very friendly and how about that Basil Daisy ( drink )!

South is a yummy Mexican restaurant that serves fresh food! They are unlike typical American Mexican restaurants as the food is not "heavy." They homemake their chips and tortillas. They have a salsa bar with fresh salsa that varies from medium to super spicey. Items are served with Peruvian beans and a delicious slaw. Their meat is slow cooked and... More
