    Fabulous staff, super friendly! Sweet potato chips and margaritas were a winner. Obviously being a footy night they were super busy. It meant we had 4 different people looking after us, some of them were slightly confused about what we had ordered. Some tacos came to the table but unfortunately they couldnt tell us which ones they were, so they went back to the kitchen. When they worked out it was our tacos, the food came back out and was cold. Music was SUPER loud, almost to the point where I was shouting to my friend who was sitting next to me. I love south of the wall but it was just a bit hectic!

    Food was good but took over 50mins to come out. No one took our drink order for 20mins. Was very busy due to football rush but a heads up or apology from staff regarding long wait times would have been appreciated.

    How can you go wrong with Mexican food? Corn cob? Tasted like it had been cooked the week before dry and unappetising, nachos that sour cream and salsa had been waved over from a distance and we had to do for the cheese. Given there are five Mexican restaurants within a 500 meter radius these guys need to lift their game. If you were thinking of going here, seriously reconsider.

    We had to remind them multiple times for them to bring out the food and then they didn't even bring out all that was included in the bottomless package in the end anyway. We couldn't be bothered anymore so just paid and left.

    Dried out tortilla’s made soggy and chewy under the heat lamp does not make for a great Taco! 20 Minute wait after seating to get an order for a beer, which comes 10 minutes later doesn’t quench your thirst. Nachos in a plastic tray with holes in it, besides being unappetising, are really difficult to eat without making a mess. All up, it’s not a place that I’ll be running back to. Lots of much better Mexican in Richmond that I’d rather spend at.

    A spicy taco that not just delivers, but exceeds all spice expectations and tastes great doing it? Absolutely amazing. If you love spice, it's worth going for that alone. Great birria tacos toos.

    This was my first time down South and I couldn't have picked a better place to dine than South of the Wall 🧱. I'm not usually a big fan of tacos but this place had the best tacos. The tacos were prepared to perfection, and the margaritas were divine. The atmosphere was lively and the staff were friendly and attentive. If you're looking for a fun and flavourful dining experience, South of the Wall is the place to be. 🌮

    Everything was really good however we had 2 vegetarians on the table and the staff were well aware of this, but when they got their ‘vegetarian’ tacos the staff said it was cactus, however the both had chicken pieces in it too which was a bit disappointing as they were not compensated for this mistake. Apart from that the drinks were really yummy and so was the chicken.

    The nachos are very yummy, though a bit overdone on the avocado. Also both cocktails I've had there were very watery so not overly pleasant and expensive for what it is. Tacos are good, and there's an impressive range, though the black bean one seems like something I could just make at home.

    Took a while to get someone to take our order so we ordered everything in one go. We got a white sangria instead of a red sangria. We asked for nachos as an entrée to share, they came out last with all the other dishes and there was no corn. We had to chase waiting staff to get another drink. The restaurant was only half full. The food was good but not so good that it compensated for the poor service.

    The food was really nice and we were served by two different waiters. One was so friendly and nice and the other was the complete opposite, in fact it seemed like we were bothering him even just to place a drinks order. Place is cute, drinks were delicious as was the food, just a shame about the the grumpy waiter with the pigtails.

    Booked a table and got seated on one that wasn’t clean. Waited 30 mins for a menu, got completely ignored by the waiter who was cleaning the other tables around us. Gave him a chance to serve us because we understood how busy it was. Decided to leave. Such a shame!

    Outstanding food, fantastic service and hospitality and an incredibly friendly and generous owner/manager. I booked a large table for my birthday back in August of 2023 and was gifted with a shot of tequila for everyone there, then the owner went across the road to another venue to talk to the security to make sure my entire group got in for drinks. It's been 5 months since then and I'm still impressed with my experience here. 10/10 would recommend

    Unfortunately, we were seated and had to wait 30 minutes to even have our drinks order taken. Our booking was 6.30pm and there was barely any other customers so it was not a case of the wait staff being too busy. Again later we didn't receive great service once our food had been delivered, no one came back to check if we wanted more drinks, or any other food ordered. The food was really great, it's a shame that we were let down with the service.

    Great little Mexican place, good vibes and great drinks. The staff were really friendly. We ordered a lot of tacos and they are generous with the portions. The brisket, lamb, mushroom and steak were very tasty - the chicken and fish was a bit mediocre though. But overall a decent little joint!
