The food was good the service was attentive. I have been here a few times since the prices are reasonable and you get a nice plate of food. I always get the chicken and it comes with rice,beans,salad and a tortilla.

I paid $45 for two of us to have dinner last night in a "nice restaurant". I just paid $24 for five full plates of delicious food at this place. What else can I say? If I were staying in Leon, I would be here every day! Super friendly people with big smiles to boot! If you're a picky gringo... More

The best way to eat from Asados de Pelibuey is to choose your meat. Whether you eat in or take out, you will see the few options, laid out after they're taken out of the kitchen. Look for the ones that are fresh. Sometimes chicken sits out for a while and gets dry. Same goes for some other meats. I... More

Typical is chicken, pork, or beef with salad and 2 sides. They have a few add-ons but not many, nor should they. It's a simple meal where you don't have to flip through 20 pages to pick something. Meal is $2 or $3 with a drink. I've probably ate here 20 times and will return next time I'm in Leon.

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 ate grilled pork with rice, beans, cabbage salad and tajadas (plantain chips) with a coke... 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 under $4USD, along with doing your part to encourage the survival of Nicaraguan cuisine.

Limited menu selection, but the food is very tasty and good. Simple but comfortable atmosphere. One of the best values in town.

My husband and I ate here in January and it was so good that I returned on a girls trip. Both times I have the chicken with rice, slaw and a tortilla and both times i paid $2.50 US for that as well as a 24 ounce bottle of Coke Zero. The chicken breast is a very large piece and... More

The food is good, it's cheap, it's fast, and the service is good. What more can you ask for? It's absolutely not the place for a vegetarian. I love the chicken in jalapeño sauce. As other reviewers have said, it's very basic-meat, tortilla, gallo pinto, and shredded salad and it's about as traditional a meal as you can have in... More
