Amazing food! Some of the best tacos I've had!
The food here is amazing. One of the best Cuban Sandwiches I've had. Great Chicken Enchiladas. Try the tostones (crisp plantains), they are delicious.

Delightful restaurant! Delicious food and excellent service! I recommend this place to anyone that wants to try some Latin inspired dishes.
Good food. Good service. It's nice to have a variety of Latin American dishes. We have many excellent Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood. This adds both Cuban and Puerto Rican Specialties to the mix.

Antonio is wonderful and the food is great! Tostones and enchiladas are my favs but the grilled cheese and tomato soup aren’t bad either 🙂 Thursday are $6 margaritas 😀
The food is delicious, inexpensive, well-presented, and a nice variety of Latin dishes. The service was very pleasant and cheerful. It's a great addition to RP, one that provides a nice place with good food that you can drop in any night of the week.

Third time here. Love the fresh ingredients from the salsa to the fresh lime juice in the margaritas! The margaritas are the best! Had the Ropa Vieja which was delicious! Also started with the Cuban Empanadas which were delicious. So glad we have a great margarita place In the neighborhood!!
We stopped in to South of the Border for an impromptu late lunch recently. Not a fancy place, but they had good food and a welcoming staff. There's a compact selection of familiar pan-Latin dishes (e.g., tacos, arepas, cubano, ropas viejas, etc), and a similarly compact selection of beverages. Our taco dinners were fresh, plump & tasty; with three tacos, beans and rice, they were filling & thrifty. It's a nice alternative in this neighborhood - definitely on my short list next time I'm up that way.

Good food! Can't wait to go back and eat again! The waitress was very friendly! Will def be back to try something else on the menu
Taco Dinner/ nice price.
I was not expecting white butter rice with tacos? That was not a blend.
That was the turn off.
Pico De Gallo Great! Taco avergae. Service was good.
Wait time from order to Receiving was a little long, for a taco dinner.
Great location, friendly and clean!

The empandas here have become my new obsession. We've ordered a few times through Yelp when craving them. The delivery was quick, the food was fresh. Definitely recommended. I want to go in person one day since everyone keeps mentioning the drinks.
I really enjoy South of The Border. I have been here about 5 times since it has opened and always leave full and happy. I've also ordered a different thing every single time. Yes, sometimes it can take a couple minuetes but they are attenttive and asking for any refills and what else they can help with. The owner Antonio is just a swell guy.
The fresh chips and salsa that you get are able enough to keep you sustained while you wait for your food. The drinks are decently priced and large in size. The entrees are also quite large and most of the time you will have to take a to-go box.
From the Jibaritos to the Cuban Sandwich, this place is a must.
I will gladly keep giving them my business.

Cuban lady from Miami over here! I was very skeptical about the Cuban food since they do Mexican and Puerto Rican food as well... But I ordered for delivery and was very pleasantly surprised!
I had the ropa vieja and the guac with tostones. The ropa vieja and white rice were on point!! The guac was super fresh. The maduros were perfectly cooked, just soft enough with ever so slightly crispy edges.
One thing to note is that everything was under-salted. Once I added salt, the FLAVORS were all good.. that's the hard part. Adding salt is easy. Also, the black beans were not my favorite but everyone has their own idea of what black beans should taste like.. and they're always best when they're homemade.
I'll definitely try more dishes from here in the future just based on the quality of the guac, ropa vieja, maduros, and rice!

This restaurant deserves more credit. It's family owned. Their dishes are latin american with their own twist. I've been here a few times, but I was waiting to write my review. Every time I come here I feel like I'm back home and my ma is in the kitchen cooking as I patiently wait for my food sipping on my margarita. Can we talk about their mixed drinks? I mean come on! This place is in Rogers Park and not on Clark. Their mixed drinks go hard and delicious. Seriously, don't order pizza tonight and come get yourself a margarita and some home home cooked Hispanic food.
This place opened up somewhat recently in Rogers Park. Unfortunately, the neighborhood is lacking in high quality restaurants, so I am glad this place became an option.
I've been here 3-4 times since it opened, and each time I've gotten the jibarito and empanadas. The jibarito is a chicken sandwich made with fried plantains instead of buns--makes me feel like I'm being healthier? Last time I visited, I had a mango margarita. It came on the rocks with salt and had the right amount of booze for me. It was also only $6 on a Thursday.
I really hope this restaurant can show consistency which is what our neighborhood needs in a dining option. I wish South of the Border the best of luck!
