Taste Budz Review: De Leon’s Taco & Bar

by Taste Budz

If you have a craving for fantastic Mexican food, De Leon’s is the place to be. (10208 N Division St #110, Spokane, WA 99218)

What we munched on:
~The Morning After Bloody Mary
~Chicken Fajitas
~Ground Beef Burrito
~Holy Taco

Zack has always wanted to try a glamorous Bloody Mary and that’s what immediately caught our attention at De Leon’s. The Morning After Bloody Mary was loaded with jalapeño, bacon, shrimp, olives, pickled asparagus, dilly beans, and a TACO!! It really was more of a delicious meal with a side of Bloody Mary!

Fajitas are my go to when we go out for Mexican. I loved the freshness and crunch of these fajitas but because they were so fresh they weren’t quite as saucy and spicy as I am used to, however, I do love an unusual amount of spice.

Zack went all out for his drink/appetizer and kept it simple for his dinner with a ground beef burrito. He really enjoyed it but after his bloody mary he was craving the same pop of flavor and wouldn’t have minded if it had some salsa or something extra.

Last but certainly not least was the Holy Taco and HOLY SMOKES, was it out of this world! The taco is named after Jesus who created them, although you pronounce his name hey-zeus, I always appreciate a good play on words. The marinated skirt steak was mouthwatering and so juicy, it was served with a green salsa which I personally love, as sometimes I get a little bored of the traditional red salsa. It was also topped with cilantro and onions.

If you want to check them out on taco Tuesday’s they do taco sampler platters. We will definitely be back to try this! They also do a margarita flight (6 margaritas per flight), I was driving otherwise I would’ve taken full advantage of it, they carry about 50 different tequilas.

If you are vegan/vegetarian you can enjoy their tacos, fajitas, or burritos made with soy protein.

They make their tortillas in house, in fact Sergio De Leon has a factory here in Spokane where he makes tortillas using shepherd’s Grain wheat flour, sourced from the Palouse region.

Their northside location is conveniently located in a strip mall shortly after you get off the 395, there was plenty of parking which is always a bonus when going out to eat. Obviously, it’s so dang cold nobody is eating outside but they had a very cute fenced in patio area that looks like the perfect spot to enjoy some margaritas and tacos on a hot summer day. The layout inside can accommodate a great casual date night spot as they have a section with standard booths and tables or you can sit in their bar area for a fun guys night out. Whatever the occasion may be, they are sure to suit all your needs.

If you’re like us and wait until you are starving to go out to eat, fear not because their food service was extremely fast. My food was even ready a couple minutes before Zack’s and they asked if it’s be alright to bring mine out first, which was an obvious YES!

I have always loved Mexican food but after my time spent in Phoenix my taste-buds grew attached to genuine Mexican. cuisine. Luckily, the family owners are originally from the Texas/Mexican border and are bringing their authentic culinary flavors north of the border. There are three locations around Spokane, one in the Gonzaga District, one on the south hill, and one on the north side. So no matter where you are you can check them out!
