“The green corn tamales are wonderful!”

Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 18 February 2017

I had heard that this place had very good tamales and I was not disappointed. The other items we sampled were also good. The food is definitely a cut above the typical Mexican fare of Tucson, which is saying something. The restaurant itself is certainly nothing special and it is fairly small. It was busy when we were there, but the service was good. Definitely worth a try.

amazing food exceptional service. Michael and crew showed up well in advance to scout out the location, arrived promptly ahead of schedule. Assisted in set up of room and the staff went above and beyond to insure that the event went off perfectly. Food was outstanding, their green corns are the bomb!

Lerua's is a tiny place with huge flavors. Everything was amazing right down to the chips and salsa. The service was quick and friendly. There isn't a lot of atmosphere but the food more than makes up for it!

We have been to a lot of Mexican restaurants in Tucson, and the food at Lerua's was the best so far. The decor is modest and the prices are not the cheapest, but it's worth it for the food. Service qa excellent. The tamales are their claim to fame, and they were excellent. The tortilla soup was also excellent as was the Chile Verde. The presentation was more interesting than most taquerias as well. A great beer list is nice bonus.
