South Street Mexican
A Mexican-American cantina with margaritas, spicy fries & other eats in a colorful storefront. Open late seven days a week; the Copa serves the same legendary margaritas, gourmet burgers and Spanish fries as its original South Street sister. But you’ll also find food and drink specials geared to a student’s budget. Copa is a genuinely original and a refreshing oasis in a sea of bland corporate chain restaurants.
