    I always enjoy stopping at SOB. Browse the shops, grab a bite to eat, take a photo with the many statues!

    Interesting but a bit depressing reminder of days long gone.

    A good place to stop for a bathroom break. If you need other stuff in the meanwhile, you can find it there too.

    An old time favorite. Filled with junk.

    Todd Rademacher · July 27
  • Jon T.

    Go to Bucee's in Texas for a clean bathroom, good road trip snacks, and good impulse shopping. South of the Border was a SOB.

    Jon Thompson · July 18
  • Virginia H.

    "You never sausage a place."

  • Ted T.

    Everyone has to make a stop here at least once in their life. You probably don't never stop again but you have to do it once.

    Ted Trentler · July 6
  • Denise F.

    It's the de facto standard for cheap dirty tacky tourist traps- but we just have to stop and look around... it's tradition!!

    Denise Ferrara · July 4
  • Brandi B.

    Check out the reptile house! You won't be disappointed

    If you look past the offensive stereotypes you do get some fun / funny / weird sites.

    Keep entertained by watching the signs and miles tick by!

    Renee G · February 21

    The tourist traps of tourist traps! ...all the billboard build up makes it hilarious.

    Danielle · October 21, 2014

    A staple in the state .... a place you should at least visit once just to say you have been there.

    Getting too old

    Disappointingly small sombrero on a tower. Cheerful staff seem to be really enjoying their job. Comprehensive range of novelty hats and year 2000 celebration merchandise.

    Bill Beesley · September 8, 2014
  • Todd V.

    The reptile lagoon was cool.

    Todd Vaccaro · August 26, 2014

    Reptile zoo was a bit expensive.

    Enjoy the ageless sight when traveling south on I95....

    Racist as fuck. Cultural appropriation at its finest.

    Cesar Perez · July 6, 2014
  • James P.

    If Disney is like Vegas to a child, this place would be Atlantic City. Fun but dirtier.

    James P · February 20, 2014
  • Glenn N.

    Extremely tacky but worth stopping at least once.

    Glenn Niemiec · January 6, 2014

    What can you say about SOB it is what it is and what it is is a piece of history in our family...Mom went there for her Honeymoon "back in the day" when it was just new...

    Laura Lycans · November 23, 2013
  • Dave S.

    They're closed even when they're open.

    This place is dead, run down and half the businesses are closed or gone. The million billboards make you think it's nice. Gross place!!

    If you plan to ride up in the sombrero, call before coming because they always make excuses for not going up. Ugh.

    Charity Cox · June 30, 2013
  • Melissa C.
