About Us

How did we start Leonel Restaurant?

Leonel Aragon started his life as an entrepreneur in 2009, selling tamales from the back of his red pickup (la troquita) in the Super Save parking lot. A few months later he upgraded to a trailer located in the same spot and had it for four years. “We had a loyal clientele right from the start,” Aragon said, “but it was hard work. My wife and I got up every day at 4 in the morning to prepare the food, then we would take it to the trailer and make sure that everything was ready by 7:30 a.m.” “We were always tired,” said his wife, Nena Aragon.

They used to cook at the Taos County Economic Development Corporation Food Center. “They were really supportive,” Aragon said. “But it feels good to have our own place now.” The restaurant opened Jan. 20 and kept the original name of the business, Leonel’s Tamales. It is now located next to Baskin-Robbins. Leonel and Magdalena (Nena) Aragon are from Nuevo Casas Grandes, in Chihuahua. They moved to Taos 17 years ago. “We wanted a good place to educate our children and start a new life,” he said. “Things turned out right. Our oldest daughter, Anahi, will start working with us soon, making delicious Mexican desserts.”
