Leo’s Mexican Restaurant was founded in 1989 by Leobardo Esquivel aka “Leo”. At the age of 24 Leo immigrated to the Land of Opportunity with the hope to obtain a better life. Leo worked his way up the ladder. His first job was at a local restaurant in Flagstaff, AZ as a dishwasher and was quickly given the opportunity to work as a busboy. In 1973, Leo moved to Tucson, AZ where he worked as a waiter in a well-known local restaurant and later became the General Manager.
After he had been given the opportunity to work as a dishwasher, busboy, waiter and a General Manager, Leo had gained enough experience and decided he was ready to become a business owner and that is when Leo’s Mexican Restaurant was born.
He didn’t have very much money but he had big dreams. Leo’s has been serving Tucson for over 20 years. On any given day you will see Leo at the restaurant greeting his customers with a big smile. At Leo’s everyone is family!
We hope to see you soon.
