We had not tried Leal's because we had not been impressed by other so-called higher-end Mexican or TexMex venues. Leal's is very nice but not pretentious and the service was attentive and unassuming. The crispy-fried relleno with shredded chicken was the best I've had in...More

We found Leal's on the web and were not disappointed. If I lived in Amarillo I think I would become a regular. The food was very good and the margaritas were excellent. Food service was quick and the staff was more than willing to answer...More

Sat at bar. Decent service, not great. Guac and green chili caso were very good. Chilu Verde Brisket Burrito was awesome! Served with rice and beans. Margarita served like a martini in metal shaker and poured over ice in martini glass. You get two "Margatini's"...More

This is very good, classic Tex-Mex fare. Like others have said - the Queso is hard to beat! It's just a great example of good Tex-Mex food! Terrific place!

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!
