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.

My wife, myself and our 2 kids tried Leon's for dinner tonight. We were impressed! The menu had a lot of options, the food was fresh and delicious, the prices were reasonable and the service was very good! Loved that it is family owned with family recipes. Very authentic. The salsa was delicious. I ordered the chicken enchiladas. The owner... More

Loved the first visit. Tonight was an Ok dinner. Food had too much salt; waiter did not return to ask how things were, nor to ask if we wanted another drink. A bit disappointed with the dinner tonight.

We love this place. The food is great, the sangria is great, the service is wonderful, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is fantastic. We usually meet friends and have a couple of drinks at the bar first. The bartender is very friendly and on top of his area. The restaurant is owned by a previous jockey and at... More

Close to the horse tracks, it looks like an authentic Mexican cantina, the best one I found so far in Saratoga Springs. I sat at the bar and ordered a Margarita, veeery good. It came with free homemade tortilla chips and salsa. As a main I ordered Green Chili Pork. I got a huge plate of tender meat in an... More

Living in upstate NY finding good quality authentic Mexican food can be a challenge. Saratoga Springs does offer a couple of choices and after trying them all I feel Leon`s is at the top of the list. The soft tacos are out of this world as well as the stuffed pablanos. The entrees are also delicious and well portioned, The... More
