Bienvenidos ~ Welcome

From the warm inviting atmosphere, to the friendly and efficient staff, to the wonderful selection and quality of food, South of the Border will delight your senses! Fernando Guerrero and his family are committed to offering you the best Mexican food experience at the most reasonable prices.

Offering traditional Mexican fare such as tacos and burritos, to tender and flavorful Carnitas and Camarones Al Mojo De Ajo (an incredible fresh shrimp and garlic creation) the food will tempt your taste buds and keep you coming back for more. Try an ice cold Corona, a Margarita, or the beverage of your choice to accompany your meal. When dinner is through, delight your sweet tooth with the traditional Flan, Deep Fried Ice Cream, or Fernando's own delicious creation, the ORIGINAL Cheesecake Chimichanga.

Absolutely, hands down, the best Mexican food in the Desert Empire. We've been in the desert for over twenty years and no other Mexican food comes close to South of the Borders'. One bite of their incredible enchilada and we become emotional.                 Rex and Kelly M.

Located on the corner of Palm Drive and 2nd Street in Desert Hot Springs, South of the Border is one of the best kept secrets in the desert. Forget the large chain restaurants with their impersonal service and mediocre food, and come enjoy lunch or dinner with Fernando and his family!
