El Leoncito is a good place to stop and enjoy a burrito while overlooking Cape Canaveral in Titusville Fl. The food is unremarkable, but very reasonably priced (lunch specials for less than $10). It is a casual atmosphere and a nice place to stop in to have a bite of Mexican food.

After reading positive reviews at TripAdvisor last year we tried EL Leoncito's for lunch. It was relaxed, friendly, and very good authentic style Mexican food. We returned this year and had a lunch on Taco Tuesday following a nice long exploration of the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary. The tacos were very tasty and came with rice and refried beans. All very...

This came recommended to us by a local. It did not disappoint. The food was great. Loved the salsa. Happened upon happy hour so got half price margaritas. They were good too. This was better than your average Mexican restaurant. We could tell there were a lot of regulars eating there just by comments and conversations that passed by our... More

The only thing I could change, is I think I put too much cilantro in their salsa. The tortillas and taco shells are wonderful, being made from a corn based flour. They have Mexican and Cuban food, and a good variety.

We eat here every week or so for dinner. The restaurant is popular with locals, and has a friendly atmosphere. There is often a short wait on Margarita Mondays, but worth it. The food is good, the portions large, and the price reasonable. Have sampled most menu items, ranging from fish tacos to habanero steak, but my go to is... More

This place is extremely popular - a short wait even on a Monday night. But it's a fun place with good food and huge portions - not to mention the massive margaritas.
