This looked a bit scary, a lone food truck in a run down neighbourhood car park where we were the only non-Spanish speakers but all good, in fact the food was delicious. So worth finding if you ignore or look past the initial situation and...More

Friendly place that has been here for many years. Good Mexican food for reasonable prices. We meet with friends who moved out of California every time they are back in town, to share memories.

Leo's is consistently good. I have been going to Leo's for over 30 years. Always worth the trip from the OC.

I love authentic Mexican food. The problem is that I live on the East Coast where almost all of our "Mexican" restaurants don't serve true Mexican cuisine. At the end of my last visit to California, my sister-in-law took us to Leo's for our last...More

Ordered Chile Relleno and beef tamale. Waiters very attentive. Provided numerous refills of super crispy tortilla chips and salsa. Meal came with refried beans and rice. Not overly spicy so was just to my liking. Parking behind restaurant.
