Really good grub, super friendly folks, get the bread pudding with rum sauce (warm). Parking is street only, good luck. Mr. Leon himself generally visits with you in the "dining room".

We had the brisket & ribs. Outstanding BBQ and it definitely deserves a TMBBQ Top 50. Love the sides as well. Spicy rice is awesome
