If you love tamales, especially green corn tamales, this is the place. I have gone there for years and never leave disappointed. The refried beans are excellent too but I go there for the tamales. If you like tamales, you have to go.

We both ordered the chicken Enchiladas and they were delicious. The waitress brought us chips and salsa first, while we were waiting for a food and the salsa was GREAT. Nice and spicy, just the way I like it. It is a very noisy place,...More

The wait staff were friendly and had good recommendations from the menu. The tamales and tacos were excellent, with warm taco chips and salsa on the table. Restaurant serves alcohol.. Good value. Sadly the restaurant may be moving to another location so not as convenient...More

Love this place. They have all the makings of a fantastic Mexican restaurant: Great tamales, tortillas, and beans. The calabacitas are great too.

This was a family lunch, and we all ordered different foods - and each of them was cooked perfectly! The blend of spices was fresh and tasty, and the veggies were perfectly ripe. I wish they could bottle the spices for us to take home...More

Leruas always feels like visiting my tia south of the border. Fish tacos are my favorite (if I haven’t eaten too many of the crispy chips and yummy salsa). And they have the best green corn tamales in many of my friends’ opinions. Service is...More

Stopped in for lunch and had the green corn tamales and they were delicious. Had never eaten there before and the service was great, the people were friendly, and the food very good. I would recommend the green corn tamales as my first choice.

Wonderful wait staff, fantastic enchiladas, excellent steak, beans were very good. Sangria was great!!! Cost was $45 for 2 dinners with rice and beans, and 2 glasses of sangria. A little pricey but the quality was above and beyond compare. Will definitely do it again!...More

Unfortunately no margaritas - only beer and wine, but they have a great selection.
