This place is on the border line of Fruitvale/Clifton, and Grand Junction. Leon is from San Blas, in Mexico - an extremely beautiful place and the last pirate stronghold in the New World (Portuguese). This food really tastes delicious and different from American/Mexican restaurants. It might be managed by one of Leon's relatives now. A great place in general, and... More

We are locals in this area. We will NOT be returning! This place used to be great and has turned to terrible. Food portions were not large like the other posts suggest, and only average in taste. We had to ask several times for refills, and were charged for chips and salsa (typically complimentary). This place is suffering, thats why... More

We tried Leon's for the first time today and were very impressed. The furnishing are plain but the food made up for it. We ordered the "Leons Platter for 2". It included carne asada, bacon wrapped shrimp with onions and peppers, and pork carnitas. There was enough food for 3-4 people and it was all fabulous. Several other diners were... More

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

Our first trip to Leon's and what a pleasant surprise. Everything from chips and salsa, margueritas and entree were delicious. Glad to find this gem.
