Had heard good things about Leon's, that it was the best Mexican food in the Valley, and while it might be, those from the southwest will find nothing special here. Nonetheless, we found the food to be flavorful and well prepared. We had chile rellenos, enchilada verdes, and a wet burrito. The food was very good, but the sauces seemed... More
