Diner Reviews
  • "We've walked past South countless times while in Leavenworth & decided to finally try it after reading such great reviews; needless to say we were pretty disappointed. We visited @ 8:30 PM on a Saturday night after making reservations on OpenTable. We were immediately seated & sat next to a bachelorette party whom were EXTREMELY loud & squeaky in such a confined environment. I had the Green Chicken enchilada, which I didn't enjoy at all, soggy, flavorless & had more topped lettuce than anything else. My husband had the Salmon Tacos which he said didn't taste fresh at all."

  • "The margaritas here are great, love the vibrant colors, and the food is great - I don't usually care for Americanized Mexican food, but this is fresher sort of Tex-mex. yum!"

  • "I have always enjoyed the little pot of string beans soaked in lime juice and sprinkled with sale. When I was recently in, they just were't as good. I believe they had some kind of seasoning salt instead of just plain seasalt. Both my husband and I had trouble sleeping that night and we were wondering if it was something in the seasoning. That is the only common item we ate or drank. Other than that the shrimp was nice tasting. Service was awesome as always."

  • "It is a great place to have a? First Date dinner date because the setting is casual yet romantic. The food, service, and location was. Inexpensive but very 5 star. I made reservations the same day and the South honored the reservation quickly and courteously. I would recommend South leavenworth to anyone wanting a place for first date or a date night away from everything."

  • "This is a great little place with unique food. We go to the one in Leavenworth every time we are in town. We aren't locals. It's actually Latin American and not your typical Mexican food. We love the fresh chips and unique dishes. Have liked everything we have tried. Just a nice little spot."

  • "Came in for a friends birthday and naturally loved it. Service was excellent, menu had great variety for different appetites, and drink menu was perfect. We were able to laugh, be loud, and still fit in with the rest of the restaurant. We love South and will definitely be back!"

  • "We were looking for something other than Bavarian/German food in Leavenworth and came across South. The food and service were excellent. The carne asada quesadillas, chicken enchiladas, chile relleno, and the tacos were all very much enjoyed. Great atmosphere and convenient location. Would definitely go again."

  • "Great little restaurant...service was ok. Menu was a little bit confusing. Food was great. Pretty small place. Right off the main street in Leavenworth. I would definitely go back."

  • "SOUTH is one of our favorite restaurants. Every time we have the chance we eat there. We just wish it wasn't so far away from us so we could enjoy it more often. It is a real gem. The food is exceptional, the setting is fun and the service is great."

  • "We have ate at this restaurant before and really enjoyed the experience, however, this occasion we had reservations and we were placed practically in the kitchen. I felt pushed to eat fast and leave. I'm not sure if I would come back."

  • "Friendly staff and good drinks but really disappointed in the food. Felt like fast food with zero presentation. The beans and my carne Asada (which was actually minced meat) was drowned in liquid/sauce and it wasn't appetizing to look at or eat. Yummy Chile sauce on salsa bar and good bartender made the 80$ fast food bill not hurt so much."

  • "It may seem strange to choose a Mexican restaurant in America's Bavaria, but go figure. It was the highlight of our dining over four days in Leavenworth. The service was accommodating, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. We were 5 adults and a toddler and all our meals were excellent. The margaritas were fresh and very tasty - about as good as a bar margarita gets. It was a bit on the loud side, but not too bad. Try it, you will love it!"

  • "We already knew we were going to like it since we had eaten there before. The basil daisy margarita is fantastic and was better than we recalled. I had the very flavorful Argentina steak frites, which went great with the drink. Pam had the seafood tostada. Also very good. Good service. Fun atmosphere. Great drinks."

  • "Mixed review on this one....My husband said his meal was fantastic, mine was okay. I ordered fajitas and expected them to be on a sizzling iron platter when they arrived, they were simply on a plate with the rest of the meal. Something I found odd for this genre....No chips and salsa before dinner unless you ordered them off the appetizer menu? The service was competent enough, and our meal arrived quickly. We dined outside in the patio/courtyard area and the ambiance was quite charming."
