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.

Worst food I've had! The guacamole was very bland, the "mild" salsa they put on the table burned my throat for 20 minutes! We tried the brisket tacos and that was a mistake. They were not like any Mexican or tex-mex I've ever had!

Leal's is family owned and is our "go to" restaurant in Amarillo. Their hatch queso is wonderful on chili rellenos or enchiladas. Great service, wonderful food and quick access will make a visit enjoyable. You can't go wrong with this choice, seriously!

When we go visit my mother we always take her to Leal's. The food and wait staff are wonderful. I love Tex Mex and all the southwestern flavors. The food is fresh, amazing and full of flavor. Sometimes the salsa can be spicey, but it's awesome. If you're looking for Tex-Mex, this is the place.

Leal's always has good food and great service! Perfect for families! I like that the child's plates are not hot like the adult plates.
