This has been our favorite Mexican food place in Amarillo for years. Reasonable prices and the food has always been better than average. We usually eat the same things because we crave the flavor.

Nice atmosphere and really good food. Not quite excellent rating, but certainly better than average. Homemade chips are thin and cheese dip is good, salsa is average. Service was outstanding.

Used to be wonderful. Now just average. Nachos are safe. Go to the one in Muleshoe or Clovis NM. Will work if you are out of options or close by.

Love Leal's. The blanco queso is a must! I always order the Texas enchiladas as I enjoy spicier food!

My family & I ate here (party of 13) for Sunday lunch. We were seated promptly, had great service and enjoyed good Mexican food. The location is conveniently located off of Georgia Street on the north side I-40 frontage road. We were able to visit, were seated near a window & were very pleased with the experience.

Always a great place, even when they started in an abandoned gas station years ago in New Mexico. Great food.

This is one of several Leal's Family Restaurants, and a great establishment for the best Tex-Mex food around. The atmosphere is casual and definitely family oriented. Service is right on being attentive without smothering you. I can't say enough how good the food is, from enchiladas to crispy chili rellanos,sopapillas, deep fried avacados and much more. It is just plumb... More

We have dined at Leal’s for over thirty years in Muleshoe, Clovis, and Amarillo. Leal’s makes excellent food. I am especially fond of the Chile Rellenos, Beef Enchilada (with Red Sauce) and Chicken Enchiladas (with Green Sauce). The quality of food has been consistent over the years and service is great. Ask for the Hatch Green Chlie Caso….out of this... More
