Nuevo Leon Restaurant Review

: We like the individually topped nachos at this pleasant, family-oriented taqueria, which draws multiculti crowds noon and night. And the mole sauce is one of the tastiest, especially for the price. Get it on chicken or enchiladas --- you won’t be sorry. The carne asada is good, but skip the fajitas. The décor is practically nonexistent, but the good news is you can BYOB.
