Our Story

Owners Heather and Jeremy grew up in the restaurant industry, and their passion for hospitality and service is evident from the moment you meet them.

Growing up in the Leal’s family business, Heather has countless memories of working alongside her family as a young girl. Food and hospitality helped define her understanding of what it means to truly care for others.

For more than 20 years, Heather and Jeremy have owned and operated Leal’s Mexican Restaurant in Plainview. In 2014, they purchased the Fieldhouse Sandwich Shop, a Plainview staple for more than 34 years. Now Heather and Jeremy are excited to put down roots in Lubbock with the opening of their first “from the ground up” restaurant, Picoso’s Mexican Kitchen, where they can proudly serve their friends and community.

Above all else, Heather and Jeremy care deeply about the people who surround them, and have dedicated themselves to being a positive fixture in their lives. At Picoso’s Mexican Kitchen, you’re family.
