This is a case of quantity over quality. I have regularly eaten Mexican in USA, but this was my partner's first experience, and based on this meal quite possibly his last. We tried the burrito, enchilada and hard taco with rice and beans. The beans were awful and all the tortillas were 'heavy', the shrimp were fine but the shredded... More

I've been visiting Tio Leo's for many years. I use to live in San Diego and there are a lot of good choices for Mexican but Tio Leo's will always be my favorite. The beef flauta is terrific it's come with some fantastic guacamole and is huge. The chips and salsa are always fresh and delish!!!

I was visiting from out of town on business and went there because the restaurant was next to my hotel. I was pleasantly surprised that the food, service, and value were outstanding. The first night I had the carnitas burrito and it was fantastic! Later in the week I had the shrimp tacos and they were also excellent. Enjoy!

The place was recommended to us by our cousin and it was a great place for Mexican Food. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Mexican Food and is visiting San Diego.

Outstanding combo fajitas. Quality of food is excellent. Quantity is more than adequate. Fair prices for abundant selection of entree's. Very clean restaurant. Staff is courteous and friendly. If you are looking for some good tasting and quality Mexican food, this is a stop for you.

Wow, service was really bad and food wasn't much better. I Had fish tacos. There was so much filler I didn't taste the fish. The tortilla fella part because it was so soggy. Very disappointed

We were each served our own bowl of salsa, which we devoured. I had a shrimp taco and a fish taco, and they were both delicious. They were so big I could barely pick them up, but I ate every bite. My friend had a burrito which would easily feed 2 people. We had hoped to return to try more... More

There were seven of us and when we entered they brought over fresh chips and salsa with plenty of cilantro and we were hoping this was going to be an indication of how good the rest of the meal would be, but alas this was the best part of our meal. A few of us ordered fish tacos and for... More
