Went for a weekend date night,slow night for a weekend with the bar being completely empty on a Saturday night. The service was very friendly, the free chips and salsa were less than average. We ordered a Burrito and Chimichanga, neither of us were 'wowed'. Mostly flavorless but it was filling.. We've had better more authentic mexican at El Mexicano,... More

I have been a patron many times over the years, but introduce 4 friends to Leon's for the first time tonight. They were as impressed - as I always am - with the friendly staff and the fabulous food. Everything is home made on premises...fresh, delicious. Our waitress was so accommodating and amenable. This is just a great place to... More

We were coming back from Lake George and just caught them before seating closed. Our server was so gracious, he always is ! The food is always wonderful and consistently good ! Great chips and Guacamole. My husband always get the Rachel Ray dish so ordering for us is so easy here. Anything you pick is good.

I'm a lover of Mexican food and this is by far the best in Saratoga. The tamales are the best I've had in the northeast. Unfortunately they aren't making them anymore!! Please start making them again!! I guess people in this area don't normally order them, but trust me, ask for them....they are the best thing they make!

As always, a good mexican dinner after the races at Saratoga. Prices are reasonable with leftovers to be had. Kids will love it!

Leon's is as authentic Mexican as you can get. Located in a residential neighborhood near the track in Saratoga Springs, it is challenging to find it among many narrow side streets. However, be patient and your taste buds will be rewarded! Menu selections seem standard, but the difference is in the taste and preparation. Portions are generous, prices are very... More

The food is fabulous! It is definitely the best mexican food in town. There is a huge menu for apps, meals, and desserts. You can sit inside or out. Come hungry!

Here again for another review... I must say every time I've been there ( let's say 4-5 at least ) I see a different bartender, not sure whether the kitchen personnel changes so often as well ( which makes it risky to rely on TripAdvisor reviews ) Nevertheless, their food was still good, I got some great "carne asada" ribeye...

Great Mexican food off the main drag. The service and food where great. A family run business that works. Not a fancy place but rather a homey place with nice size food portions.

We went on a Monday and we ordered. The item I ordered was half price on Monday and the waitress told me that. I didn't know. What a bargain! The Sangria was delicious and there was no problem getting ice on the side. Great music and atmosphere.
