Leonas Restaurante is adjoining the Holy Shrine of Santuario de Nuestro SeƱor de Esquipulas, commonly called simply El Santuario. It is shaded by a huge catalpa tree whose trunk grows through the roof of the restaurant.

We offer warm hospitality and hot tamales, burritos, Frito pies, beans and hot dogs as well as a wide variety of delicious snacks, soft drinks, and baked goods. Also offered are a number of gift items including jars and bags of food products unique to New Mexico. There are several tables and benches, set among the ristras and memorabilia, where guests can relax and enjoy the friendliness and casual atmosphere that has made northern New Mexico one of the top tourist destinations in the country.

The Restaurant is open four days a week, from Thursday through Monday, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
