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.

Ordered the Jibarito, and it is a cheap version of the original. Hard salty meat, soggy platano... their fries are those supermarket bag fries. The arroz con gandules was bland, and the cup it came in was half full. This place is a slap in the face to the Latino community.
This place is a hit and miss. It's hard to support local restaurants when you get your order and it's not what you ordered, It's what they wanted to give you. The potatoes for the omelette change all the time. One day they good and the next time you order it doesn't have any appeal to it or flavor. Pancakes have blueberries in them already and they say oh..... is it ok that they have blueberries in them?......NO! because I didn't order blueberries pancakes, I ordered strawberry pancakes and I could have kept my $43 and cooked myself saving a ton and having food full of flavor. This is a spot where you take a chance when you order. Money is never a issue..... now we just serving to keep the bills paid regardless of how it taste. Now is a great time to take advantage of customers looking forward good food to eat and it be great! Keeps us coming back...

I always bring my friends and family here and it's always been a fan favorite. Every margarita we have gotten has been delicious. They are also very accommodating and make a tofu jibaritos on request I hope it becomes a menu item in the future.
I have been to South Of The Border several times, I live in the area and it is very convenient for me. Every time I've been there seems to be different than the last. Maybe different cooks and I did have a server that I have never had. I stopped with a friend during the pandemic on a weekday, it was not especially busy. I noticed there was no hand sanitation on the table and the menus were in plastic covering. At this point, I decided to make my selection to go and have a cocktail while waiting. The service was extremely slow, very slow. I finally got my order and took a short walk home. I will tell you the fries were delish, nice and hot. All I can say about the sandwich is meh. Some of the pork was so overcooked, really burnt that I was unable to chew it and had to cut that out. The Cuban bread was also burnt in places and soggy in others. If everything tasted like the fries I would give it a 3. I hope the next time is better! Hit or miss!

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.
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.

Food was very flavorless and so disappointing because most reviews I read on here said it'd be good. I got the enchiladas verdes and everything was so bland, even the side of rice and beans. The beans literally had no flavor and tasted like it was just warmed out straight out of a can. My friend ordered the steak jibarito and it was just as plain, not even drowning it in hot sauce helped.

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.
