Having not looked at the on line menu in advance, we expected a straight Mexican bill o'fare. To our surprise, in addition to Mexican favorites, the offerings included items such as prime rib, French Dip, burgers and muffuletta. We wondered whether it would be possible...More

This place knows how to cook vegetables - they are abundant and crisp and well-spiced. We were disappointed in how rundown the facility has become - the women's restroom was very shabby, and the outside looks dumpy. The Mexican food is still excellent. I had...More

Nice, friendly staff. Some of the food was good - fish tacos for example - the rest of what we had was barely acceptable, soggy baked potatoes and "ketchupy" reheated ribs... Don't think I'll be going back anytime soon!

Never the same, food quality varies, some days better than others. Service is similar, sometimes great, some times not. Drink prices are a bit high for Gardner, but limited options in the town may be a factor. Menu needs to be renewed, better choices.

I seldom order the entrees, so my review is based on the apps and the oh so heavenly margaritas. The Black Jack margarita is the best concoction they serve. I've tried them at other places and no dice. The waitstaff is usually pretty darn good...More

Friendly staff and an interesting assortment of margaritas make Southside a good place to stop for a drink. I would recommend the Black Jack margarita. The food is not authentic Mexican but many of their appetizers are better than serviceable. All entrees and appetizers are...More
