One of the most traditional places in Leon city. A bit off the most turistic areas but with the best home made food ever. A must.

Had lunch there. Many businessmen. All a la carte. No Menu pricing which is what we enjoy for lunch. Medium priced food. Cooked well but fairly basic. Lots of local restaurants that probably prepare similar for less.
