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.

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.

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 😀

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!

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!!!
I arrived with a group of four. Place was empty, nice music, interesting atmosphere. All of our plates lacked flavor, Jibarito meat was tough, tacos with lettuce and tomatoes and my ropa Vieja was bland , like stringy spaghetti. Huge disappointment, the only reason I decided to try this place was because the good reviews and pictures looked yummy. Left hungry.

Enchiladas. Yes, the enchiladas make this place great.
Or is it the margaritas? The Arepas?
Or the great servers?
All of it, can't wait to go back. A neighborhood gem.

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!
This place is delicious!!! The enchiladas are soooooo good, best I've had so far in Rogers Park. Guacamole is delicious and the amount is generous. I'm full before the food comes, but i have to keep eating because it's so amazing! The staff is really friendly too. I definitely plan to keep coming back!

I can never figure out why this place is empty. Whenever I go the service is great and the food is delicious. They have 6$ drink specials every weeknight, Monday is piña colada night and my absolute favorite. Beers are super affordable too! Food: The chicken enchiladas is my go to. The salsa verde is spicy but amazing. There brunch menu for Saturday and Sunday is small but also full of delicious options, I highly recommend the chorizo skillet it's a traditional Mexican breakfast done right!
