Was in town visiting and family wanted to got to Leon's. The cheeseburger is the kind of burger I personally like. It is thin and grilled crunchy with cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. When I'm back in town I will definitely go back...More

Had an excellent lunch here with friends a few days ago. It's nothing fancy, but I still give it 5 stars because it's my kind of place- great food, very reasonable prices and comfortable atmosphere, friendly service. Delicious cole slaw (had to be home made)...More

The very best patty melt from a grill. Cheese that was ideal and onions grilled to perfection. The pickle on the side was perfection. I'm so glad that I crossed the street to eat here.

Everyone told us we needed to try their famous burgers and they are FANTASTIC! For $3.50 (yes, only $3.50) I haven't had a burger like that since I was a kid. They also make home made potato chips that are also FANTASTIC!

Great cheeseburgers and seasoned fries! Yum yum! Not a huge eating area but good burgers and fries. Also offer vegetables but didn't eat them!

Step back 50 years and enjoy a good old basic burger cooked right, fresh meat, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, what more could you ask for. Served up in a neat little diner supported by locals and tourist alike. Simple is best!
