Every time we eat here I like it better. The food is consistently fresh, well prepared, served by an eager and friendly bilingual wait staff, and the 99 cent Margaritas are an excellent value. You cannot go wrong with Leon's!

This place is a real favorite of my girlfriends and me for lunches and birthdays (they give you your choice of desert or a tequila shot!) Its authentic atmosphere is heightened by the pleasant English-speaking staff, and the decor - so much like so many places I have been in Mexico. They feature a different Margarita every day for lunch... More

My husband and I visited Norfolk, NE for a terrier dog trial. We stopped by Leon for a late lunch and enjoyed the food. We ordered carry-out. I had the Leon Nachos and my husband had a huge burrito that he raved about! They didn't send along salsa so I would suggest that you request this if you want to... More

Probably my favorite Mexican restaurant in Norfolk! Their fajita nachos are SO delectable. My husband and I usually split them and a margarita. Their margarita's are also great. Staff is also incredibly friendly and helpful.

was very surprised that the mexican food here was as bland as it was. I had been there a few years ago and the food had way more flavor.

Waited 40 min to be greeted and when the waitress finally realized she had a table... Mind you we were the only table there. She laughed with her co workers about it and still took 10 minutes to actually come over and get our order. Besides the totally unprofessional staff, the food is good.

This restaurant has the best Mexican food in Norfolk, at least in the Guadalajaran/Central Mexican cuisine which I grew up on outside Mexico City/the DF. Fresh ingredients, excellent prices, and I eat here about once a week.

EXCELLENT food. Good Service, friendly staff. Reasonably priced. This is a great Mexican restaurant. It is downtown at 116 W. Norfolk Avenue so most people out of town coming to Norfolk will not know it is there. Our Motel room listed it in it's brochure and I am glad they did.
