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.

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...More

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.

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.
