Food was excellent and the service top notch! I would highly recoment the crispy relleno. This place did not have an open seat but we did not have to wait for our dinner.

The guacamole dip was perfect. I used to live in New Mexico years ago and know there is a difference between authentic New Mexican food and TexMex. Leal's is authentic New Mexico. Love it.

I visited the new location with my family and found the food as great as ever. Leal's really knows great Mexican food and turns it out year after year. We had a little of everything off the menu and did not get a complaint from anyone.

Everytime we go to Leal's the food is dry, and portions seem to get smaller. Service isn't that great could be way better. They get orders wrong. This is at both locations. My husband and I have decided to take Leals off of our list of places to eat, when we used to visit once a week. If you want... More

This review is for the Leal's location on 84 in Clovis. Great food and service, but there were many flies outside and almost as many inside. They were very annoying.

I was very disappointed with the food and service. The waitress acted like it was a great chore to take your order. Once the food arrived it was not what I had expected. I have lived in New Mexico for a number of years, and have come to expect good Mexican food. Not hot, but good chili flavor with a... More

This location has been a favorite but the past three times I've been there, the staff has displayed an indifferent "I don't care" attitude. When we entered yesterday the clerk at the front ignored us and went about her business. A waitress finally came by and asked if we had been helped. She seated us then we had another lengthy...

The food is so good here! Great Mexican food. Service is ok. You get unlimited chips and salsa that is very good. If they are busy there is a really long wait time.
