Leon's is not fancy, but it's fun. Great food--we love the fajitas; the staff is friendly and efficient. Really, the best Mexican restaurant in Saratoga and we've tried them all!

We stopped into Leon's before the track season and were very disappoint. A friend had told us this was his go to Mexican restaurant in the area. There is nothing good for me to say. Service was slow and the food was below average.

I have stopped in here during track season for a few years now. Looking at the outside it looks like a closed building. bartenders are friendly but margaritas are so-so. The meals I have ordered (chimi,burritos,etc) are very small and the sides of beans are just soupy and rice is not good. Seems like no one cares here.Prices are too... More

We wanted to grab dinner after the races and, of course, know that anything in-town is crazy crowded. So we found a spot south of town, on a side street, we only discovered because of Trip Advisor. Leon's is in a neighborhood, you can't see it from any main road. There were some tables occupied when we got there, but... More

We are regulars here at this family run authentic Mexican restaurant. This is one of my favorite mexican places in Saratoga. The mexican chicken tacos are my favorite. The service when there is no one in there is terrible, and the service when a lot of people are there is terrible. I think Mark for a long time was the... More

We moved here from Texas 5 years ago and have looked everywhere for authentic Mexican food. A friend took me here this weekend and I am so exited to find it. The chile rellenos were great - as were the rice and beans. Definitely try the sangria! Well worth the $9. It definitely has more of a punch than just... More

Great food at very good prices! Small casual dining environment that is perfect for the family. Our daughter-in-law is from Mexico and she was very pleased with her meal.

Frequently go here in off season from track. Great guac, large portions and friendly staff. Never had a bad meal here. Carne Asada is my favorite and a great tasting steak at reasonable cost.

This is a very unpretentious Mexican restaurant with friendly staff and good food. There is never an issue with my dairy allergy as everything is cooked to order. They are great about making sure we are getting what we need and keeping up the drinks. I've had a number of thinks on the menu, good basic Mexican fare all around.
