Eating well in South Park goes without saying. 5-A-Day is easy with fresh juices and cocktail cups from Jugos y Tortas, or smoothies at South Park Espresso. Step in from the rain at Via Vadi Caffè, and stay for a slice at neighboring Napoli Pizzeria. If you’re craving authentic Mexican food, your only challenge is choice: Juan Colorado, Muy Macho, and Jalisco serve homemade dishes for the whole family. For a different flavor you’ll find our very own Teriyaki joint tucked behind Jugos y Tortas on the main drag.

In a hurry? Look for Union 76, where you’ll find Taqueria El Rincon taco truck and South Park Subway. Or grab a quick to go salad or sandwich at Stockbox Grocery. Later you can slow down with friends, brews, and Seattle-style tavern burgers at Loretta’s.

Don’t let a full tummy distract you from our convenient neighborhood services. Remember to bring your car for tune-up and tires while you freshen up at the salons. South Park has a dentist, a laundromat, a gift shop, a mail stop, a pet shop, accountants, and travel agents.

Come get to know our neighborhood.

“The flavor (in South Park) is also distinctly Latino as well. The Mexican food here is a diet busting feast, with generous portions that defy price theory. There are no Starbucks or Tullys here. There isn’t a chain in sight except for the ones on peoples wallets and the Subway at the gas station.”
