Kids always want to stop here when we pass through on toad trips. Perfect for a day trip with dining options from quick to nice dining. Also a great option for passing by and stretching your legs at the mini golf or gift shops. Lots of places to take pics and climb on the giant zoo animal replicas. The tower sombrero is very neat. You can see for what feels like forever on a nice day. Admission is reasonable for a visit every couple years to the sombrero. Shops, gas stations, etc are definitely not grade A on cleanliness.
Restaurant was very nice. Good food, great prices, wide variety of different types of dishes. Plenty of options for the kids! Environment was awesome! Scenery was fantastic, statues of animals and sombrero everywhere. Lovely to look at.. saw some rides but we didn't have time. Gift shops was by far THE best!!! I'm talking like incredible. Outrageous selection and all of their items were authentic & looked pretty well made. Not a bunch of cheapo stuff. ANY body could find SOME thing they like here
South of the Border is so much fun and so cool especially if its your first time there. The shops have a bunch of random items which are fun to look through. Really cool when you are approaching and see the giant sombrero, (which you can go up top and see everything from) and all the other attractions. Slightly "dumpy" but I feel that makes it cool. Great place to shop and spend some time or even just stretch from a long drive.
So many great memories of good place as a kid. I recently visited on a trip with MY family and had a great time. It was weird, but it felt like I got a chance to start a new tradition with my wife and kids. I even snapped a photo a grabbed some souvenirs for my sisters. Much of the great things I remember are still there (like the miniature spoons from from every state). Then again, there were some nice updates from what I remember. Everything was clean and fun. Passing by on the way home it was cool to see it at night. I've never seen it past sundown. At night it reminds me of Vegas a little. It's definitely a worthwhile stop on your travels.
Went here every year when i was a kid and it's great to see they are continuing to keep this place going. Great shops for fireworks, great food & lots of excellent souvenirs. Very clean shops and very clean bathrooms. Great place to capture pictures of yourself and your family. Love this place and they picked a very good location for South Of The Border when they first opened this place years ago.
