I tried the Chipotle Chicken Pasta today and it was a religious experience. Everything on the menu that I’ve tried so far has been exceptional. Try the watermelon margarita. It’s life changing.

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 😀

I'm in the neighborhood and have eaten here a few times. The menu is an interesting mix of Mexican, Caribbean, and South American dishes, but without an obvious focus. While it's a bit hard to tell what they're trying to do, everything they've served me has been good. Check it out.
I like the arepas. Also, it seems like a family business, and they're all really nice.
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!

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!

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!!
There is something special about this place. We always have fun there, sitting at the bar, ordering enchiladas, burrito or Cuban sandwich, and meeting interesting and fun people.
Beyond the food and Margaritas, the highlight is the special upbeat energy of the owner Antonio - clearly one of the warmest, most genuine people I know, with s wonderful laugh.
I encourage people to try out this great late night place - which might also soon be opening for morning commute!

I've eaten several times at this place and I've never had anything that was less than delicious. Excellent service, too. Their arepas are one of my favorite dishes, and I loved the dish called "ropa vieja," too. I hope this place is around for a very long time!
The food is fresh and delicious. From the very first bite, it's clear that the people who make the food love what they do.
I am pretty picky about certain food. I grew up Pilsen, and lived in Humboldt Park for many years.
I will definitely go back to this place for tostones prepared properly, delicious arepas, and the jibarito. Cannot wait to try more things.
Also go here for and an absolutely delicious and creamy pina colada.
Very enjoyable and reasonable for what you get.

idiots just served me a burger with absolutely no toppings on it! wtf am i supposed to do with that. ugh!
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!
