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.

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.

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.

So fresh. So so fresh. And the margaritas are stellar ♡

I told Antonio that I was probably going to post an ode to SotB's chilaquiles on Yelp. So that's what this is! This ginormous plate of chilaquiles I had recently was amazing. To accommodate my egg allergy, they swapped out egg for grilled chicken. It came with sliced avocado and sour cream on the side and was topped by this massive slice of queso blanco. I regretted that queso blanco later, but it was WORTH IT. Their salsa verde is delicious, and the tortilla chips took on this tamale-esque texture beneath all the toppings. I couldn't finish the plate, but I wanted to!
They're not doing much indoor business due to COVID. They have a robust takeout enterprise and three outdoor patio tables out front. Masks are worn by staff, and they're definitely taking safety seriously.

Really tasty arepas, they sure don't skimp on the avocados here. Looking forward to trying out the rest of the menu, especially the vieja ropa.

Beautiful atmosphere very good food and amazing drinks. If you're looking for a variety of Latin America food and drinks this is the right place to go. Can't wait to go back!
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!

By far the best Latin restaurant I've had in a long time the food is wonderful. I highly recommend the guacamole with plantains and quesadillas...but what really stands out is the unbelievably kind service! There was a mix up on a "to go" order that I placed (got steak tacos instead of chicken)...which is totally reasonable considering the complicated order I submitted. Nonetheless, when I called explaining the mix up, they offered to drop off the tacos immediately (without my suggestion). I live in Evanston and they were here faster than a jimmy johns order. When I tried to tip the person who dropped it off he refused...I also tried to give him the "mistake tacos" and he also refused!!! This place understands customer service and really wants your experience to be memorable...well done..mission accomplished!!!
In July, my husband and I married in a small ceremony on a beach in Rogers Park, and in advance, I'd arranged with South of the Border to host an intimate lunch for us (9 people) after the nuptials. They really knocked it out of the park with a perfect setup, and I was especially happy that they allowed our larger party during their awesome live Jazz performance. It was absolutely flawless with excellent food and top-tier service. I'd been there many times prior, and I have literally never been disappointed in anything. And of course, with the most recent visit being our wedding day, for everything to be so streamlined, we were just so appreciative. The service here makes one feel as if they are truly valued, and we remain grateful.

Delicious food and excellent service. If your hungry for Mexican, Venezuelan or Puerto Rican food, this place has some amazing food. Check it out when you're in Rogers Park. Close to the Morse redline. I recommend you try this place.
