My boyfriend and I were recommended to eat dinner here from a local and it did not disappoint. Great latin food with an outdoor back patio and heaters, set a cool vibe. Big plus is there is no corkage fee if you bring your own wine, so we purchased a bottle from a local tasting room prior to dinner.

Super great margaritas and excellent food. I am gluten free and had a terrible time finding GF options in Leaventworth. South fit the bill! Street tacos were amazing and the grilled corn appetizer was SO GOOD! My husband and I ate here twice during our weekend stay in Leavenworth. Great window seating made for a wonderful afternoon of drinking, eating... 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.

We enjoyed a latin birthday dinner on St-Patrick's day in a German town! The food was excellent - very fresh & tasty. Our server was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. At the time I made the reservation, we were charged a non-refundable $100 "reservation" fee that went toward the cost of our dinner because our group was "large". The... More

We've visited here a couple times food is always good. Service was slow but friendly. A good choice if your not looking for German food.

I have always wanted to come here. Looking through the window from the street, it looks like it might be a little more upscale than it is. The food was good enough and the service was really good; just not what I had thought. Great selection of sipping tequilas though!

Thanks for finally getting a chance to stop by. It's great to hear you enjoyed your experience, even if it wasn't what you had expected.

We've been to South twice and both times we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, fresh, and wasn't overly greasy like some restaurants. South is on the Main Street in town so it's easy to walk there.

Thank MauiDude82

Happy to hear we've done nothing but impress! No one likes greasy food. That's why we keep everything fresh and excellent for you. Looking forward to your third visit. All the best, Price, Owner More

My favorite menu item - the carnitas plate - amazing. I also really enjoy the green enchiladas. You have to try the caiparina (sp?) - the Brazilian version of the margarita - really enjoyable.

My wife has a saying: "when you find excellent Mexican food don't eat there just once!" Well, I'm writing this sitting down to our second meal at South and it's every bit as good as the first.
