I have always come here for the meet. The sides and the sauce are not wonderful but when the meat is good who needs sauce? The last couple of times I've come here the meat was dry and overcooked and seem to be microwave heated....More

Of all the many great barbecue restaurants in Texas, Leon's is some of the finest. The food is great, and also the side dishes. The service was also exceptional.

I left $21.00 on the tray for a $15.00 tab. The server took the cash, cleared the tab, and disappeared out the back door. Losing the cash is bothersome. The arrogance, rudeness, and insult are a very big deal. You'll never see me in there...More
