For centuries, the people of Mexico have harvested their ancient lands to receive the gifts of the soil. From chilies, corn and avocado, to fresh vegetables and natural spices. It is this commitment to nature’s fresh ingredients, coupled with recipes and traditions handed down from generations, that will define Tio Leo’s Cantina (TLC). Here you will find your favorite dishes from our sister restaurants, but with updated flavors, some new menu surprises, all served in a friendly atmosphere just like you’d expect from a cantina.
For 39 years, the Sciuto family has owned and operated Tio Leo’s, recognized as one of the most beloved Mexican restaurants in San Diego. We are dedicated to fresh ingredients, supporting local growers and to the use of organic and sustainable foods whenever possible. This is the authentic, Mexican way of cooking.
Please join us for a “comida familiar”, spanish for “family meal”. We look forward to it!
– Joe and Kathleen Sciuto
