“Filling, tasty food for very little money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Asados de Pelibuey is one of many comedors in Leon - they offer basic, simple food for not very much money. I visited this one regularly as it was near to where we were living. For C$60, you get a chicken quarter or piece of beef/pork/lamb, tortilla, shredded salad and gallo pinto (rice & beans) in double quick time, and it's always very tasty! It's not gourmet by any means, and is pretty basic - you aren't eating in a nice restaurant! The food is very tasty and filling though and we loved it!

“good local food at excellent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

If you are looking for a tasty and filling meal for just a couple of dollars, search out this place.

It's a few blocks north of Parque Central, on a corner. Looks like only a takeout place from the sidewalk, but ample seating inside.

Nothing fancy. Choice of beef, chicken, pork, and pelibuey (sheep) with sides of slaw and gallo pinto. Two heaping plates of food + 2 sodas for a grand total of $6.

Nica friends of ours had recommended this place, and we passed along the tip to others at our hotel who also ended up eating there. A hidden local secret.

“best local restaurant in leon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

we went to this restaurant thanks to the staff of the office of tourism in leon. we asked for a local restaurant and they sent us here. food is amazing, they cook for all the workers of leon who are in lunch break. athmosphere is chilly, we suggest to try "pollo asado with arroz y frioles", that is roasted chicken with rice and beans. dont forget to enjoy a great fried platano.
located not far from the main square, very recommended and we r glad that we have been the first to report this restaurant on tripadvisor. born2travel.it
