Best Mexican Food around! It's still a bit of a secret here in Lubbock. Well worth the drive if you don't live in the area. My favorite is the Joe Rhodes Special, but all of it is superb!

My children are vegan and I am eating more and more plant-based foods. When I asked about vegetarian options, they said they actually have several vegan options! I thanked Alma for that, and she said one of her children is vegan as well. So thanks again, Alma! And I will put the word out on the local vegan website.

Leal's is honestly one of the best places to get tamales and authentic Mexican food in Lubbock. What's great is that they also have vegan options! They have vegan enchiladas and tamales, however with the tamales, I would call about an hour ahead to confirm that they have them and so that they can be made. Their chips and salsa? Delicious. My most favorite is thing about Leal's is their hospitality. I've never felt more at home or welcomed at any other restaurant. The employees are kind and helpful and seem to always have a smile on their faces. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for great service and even greater Mexican food.

consistently amazing homemade food and great customer service. Chips and salsa are wonderful and homemade according to their branded product. The employees are always willing to provide a personable service and exceed the expectation of their customers. Leal's is a West Texas original. Support local, and support a quality product and service. My favorite go-to entree is beef enchilada plate with onions. Huge portion. The tamales are great and don't forget, they will provide family packs that you can take home and heat up for any get together that calls for homemade Mexican food.

Amazing best kept secret in Lubbock, outstanding food and taste like mom made it in the kitchen. Highly recommend stay and eat or call ahead and have it ready for you to pick up. Fair prices for the quality of food.

Our go to place when we want GOOD Mexican food. Small building with a few tables so we usually order carry out. The staff are always friendly and have always had our orders correct. The queso is the best in Lubbock, most tender carne guisada, tamales are always good and they have various choices. We've never had anything bad here we like that their menu is simple home style meals that you would get at your grandma's house.

Holy tamale, Batman! This place is amazing, both in terms of customer service and food. The cheese enchilada was one of the best I've ever eaten (and I'm something of a connoisseur). The cheese and green chile tamale and the chicken and chile tamale where both phenomenal. The employee who took my order also gave me a sample of the carne guisada, and it was incredibly tender and flavorful. It's a small place, and soft drinks are only available in glass bottles or cans, but I will definitely be back!
