Nuevo Leon Restaurant

Colorful and festive with orange walls and big tables, the main dining room fills with lively groups celebrating birthdays and other family occasions.
Located in the heart of Pilsen's Mexican-American scene, this neighborhood classic serves good Mexican fare. Waitresses in traditional blue and white dresses are quick, laying out steaming, crisp tortilla chips, two bowls of salsa (spicy-sweet and just plain hot), and another bowl of pickled carrots and jalapenos before you've even settled in. Food is inexpensive and basic, but filling: from pure, unadorned guacamole to ground beef enchiladas in dark, sweet mole sauce with refried beans and fluffy rice. Caldo de res, a homemade beef stew, is a house specialty. For breakfast, there's huevos rancheros and chilaquiles (eggs scrambled with fried tortilla bits).
