About Us

Maria and Jesus Leon opened their first restaurant in December of 1996. Our family operated restaurant has now expanded to eight locations around the Twin Cities area. Working together, the Leon family brings you the best of Mexican cuisine.

Our Story

Customers coming to one of our restaurants for the first time are surprised to learn we are not a chain. We are the Leon family, and each of us works in different roles in our company. Our parents, Jesus and Maria Leon, were born in Jalisco, Mexico and relocated to Minnesota in the early 90s. They have nine niños - Maria, Jose, Carlos, Alex, Sam, Veronica, Martin, Jesse, Lupita – who work together to run the restaurant as it is today.

We are all actively involved in all aspects of the restaurants. From architecture and construction, equipment repair and maintenance, electrical engineering, cooking, catering, menu planning to bartending and of course the day to day running of the restaurants. We strive to provide the best service for our customers and a great place to work for our staff.

From our family to yours, thank you for your business and continued loyalty throughout the years. We appreciate you all very much!
