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.

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

Stopped here with friends as we traveled through Amarillo. My wife had buttermilk-batter relleno stuffed with brisket - loved it. The frozen house margaritas were excellent, but kind of small, though not expensive. We also liked the taco salad and tortilla soup. Great atmosphere and service.
