We go here almost every week when we go into Leon to do groceries and run errands. Selection of 3-5 meat dishes with rice, beans, salad and a tortilla. 3-4 fresh juice choices. Really inexpensive, great tasting, fast and friendly

I went with friends and we all had the lamb. It was delicious. A few chewy pieces, but lots of it. It comes with Gallo pinto and plantains. Local style place, very good value. $3 meal. Friday's they have fish, so I must come back.

The trick with Asados de Pelibuey is to cut your meat into small pieces. Because the meat can be a little tough, this strategy will give you all the flavor without the jaw pain of excessive chewing. The value of their food is amazing. I...More

Leon is a backpacker-centric town whose restaurant scene is suffering from over-globalization (sushi in Nicaragua??? you must be kidding). If you want great local flavors served by friendly, attentive staff, then you really should come here; you'll get a great meal with a drink for...More
