Fresh, healthy, friendly

I love this place. I used to go more often years ago when I was closer. I went back recently and it was somehow better. Now it’s mostly vegan rather than vegetarian. They said all vegan except for eggs. I recommend the veggie juice and Bolivian chicken sandwich. Perfect! Also, the empanadas and salsa are delicious😄

Vegano in the valley

I love that its not completely hip and trendy like every other Mexican vegan place. The dishes felt more authentic BUT kind of bland. I have definitely had better but this was a nice option to have in the valley. Most of it is vegan but there ranchero has egg & the menu isn’t super clear about that. Says everything is vegan but the ranchero has egg just an FYI ♥️

Veg food joint

When in a pinch go. There chickn is made from chick beans. The steak is made from mushrooms. They also make pizza priced reasonably.
Taco is filled with lettuce tomato choice of chickn or steak and vegan cheese...in a word: underwhelming. Original owner runs this location.

Pros: All vegetarian

Cons: $6/per a taco. Plate is $18(2 tacos and rice and, Beans). Too high for this neighborhood.

Awesome little mexican restaurants and friendly staff. It’s hard to find a quick spot to pick up some food vegan style nowadays it always feels like you have to sit down and dine in.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , friendly staff , Easily accessible

One of my favorites

Been going here for years, really decades at this point. I always get the same thing the chicken enchilada dinner with their garbanzo bean soup and flax seed iced tea. I absolutely love it.

Food is very bland... needs more flavoring

They have great customer service and a great selection of food. But the food lacks flavor. We added all the salsas they brought to the table and it still was missing a lot. I would recommend trying the spot for your self but I don’t think we will return.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Very bland

I’m not sure what the hype is all about. The food lacks any basic flavors and is literally just the most bland food I’ve ever had, especially at a Mexican restaurant. Plus the first item I ordered was not vegan, Chile Relleno, she told me sorry we use eggs... Nice service but definitely would never return.

Cons: Bland food, Not 100% vegan

I was whelmed with my experience. I got a quesedilla and tried some tamal, and unfortunately didn’t find it had much flavor. I wouldn’t be eager to try it again, but I also wouldn’t refuse to go back.

Pros: Fully Vegan, Low Cost

Cons: Lack of flavor

great Mexican food

This is the better of the two Leonores. Almost the same menu but everything is more flavorful and fresher. And most important IT'S CLEAN! Staff is very helpful and friendly. All round good experience.

Dont go

I went here while my dog was at the groomers, i ordered tacos and they were gross. They switched locations and what the yelp reviews seem to suggest is that their food is not as good anymore. Well any ways the food wasnt edible, i just paid my tab and left. If i can give it a 0 star i would

Although the place isn't vegan, I still enjoy their options cheese-less! I really like that the don't use salt in their foods, making some options lots healthier than they would be otherwise. Their turkey avocado is awesome, their chicken pita sandwich is absolutely delicious, and their burritos (although bland to some) and great for my palette. Pretty good pizzas too!!

Pros: salt-free

Cons: soy cheese NOT vegan

Average food

Sorry, but this place was only average to me. They do have brown ric, which is nice, but it's just nothing special. Way too many chopped onions in the salad, and not enough in the way of protein.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Food just not flavorful

Leonor's Mexican Vegitarian is YUMMY!

Leonor had the only vegetarian restaurant in town for ages! I love the "soy chicken" enchilada dinner complete with one of her lentil or chickpea soups, bread, fresh veggies, steamed pinto beans, brown rice, flaxseed iced tea and I add an empanada, which tastes just like cheese to me, but it aint! I've been hooked on that for so long that I've yet to try something else on the menu like the sandwiches or pizza that are made with soy protein (she knows how to make it taste yummy). She's got a great menu and good quality fresh food for dine in or take out. This has always been a personal favorite family owned and operated.

Pros: large selection, priced well, unique creations
