South of Nick's

Map & Directions 110 N. El Camino Real
San Clemente, CA 92672


OC Weekly's Description

South of Nick’s— the first foray into Mexican food by the company that brought you Nick’s in Laguna Beach, San Clemente, and Belmont Shore—still does what all Mexi-joints like this are required to do. It supplies never-ending baskets of complimentary chips, pours margaritas like it were a factory, and attracts a clientele who fill up the reservation book on weekend nights because of exactly these things. There’s a crackling fireplace, a cavernous central room where a bar has the gravitational pull of Jupiter and waiters who look like they might be moonlighting Abercrombie models. But it’s the kitchen that ultimately makes you believe again that a Mexican restaurant catering to the margarita-minded doesn’t have to be derivative.

    My favorite chips and salsa in south OC. Chips are super thin and usually come out warm, and their salsa has a unique twist - a little tang and a little spice. I go for the shrimp taquitos.

    The seafood enchiladas are Amazing! Stuffed with seafood and a huge slice of avocado on each. Goodbye overpriced, loud, annoying Javier's ;)
