It was a rather disappointing experience. I cannot imagine why this place rates #28 of 231 in Dearborn. The staff was extremely nice! The food was extremely average. The food quality made me think of "cafeteria" food, nothing fresh, obviously frozen or canned. I'm afraid I would have rated this establishment as "poor", but the wait staff was so very... More

This is a family restaurant that my husband went to 25-30 years ago when it was the Egg & I, he noted they changed the decor but the food was still great. They even have a breakfast and lunch bar. Great food, service, staff and prices.

Admittingly , I'm only in the area on Saturdays for lunch. I like a good Greek salad and theirs makes me :-) The large salads come with soup (or is it because the waitresses find me handsome? Ummmm....nevermind ;-) The breakfast bar is over the top - in variety and taste! Huge fruit assortment along with the standard favorites. As... More

We attempted to enjoy a family meal with 3 generations, and 15 people for Easter at this establishment. We were greatly disappointed. The food was not properly cooked ( Chicken was still cold) and the flavor of most food was horrible. This will never be an establishment we visit again !

We ate here while visiting Dearborn to see the Henry Ford museum. Food was really good and service even better! I had veal with spaghetti and husband had the angus burger with onion rings. We would definitely eat here again

The amount of food we received was really big for the money we paid for our meals. We were able to walk to the restaurant from our hotel.

I went to Leon's for the breakfast Buffett based on the reviews. I was extremely disappointed. There was barely anything on rhe buffett & the sausage gravy & biscuits were horrible! If you're looking for a good breakfast buffett the Big Boy up the road is the better of the two.

I trusted the good advice of my fellow TripAdvisor contributors and had supper at Leon’s. Great food, pricing, service and family atmosphere. Three or four different waitresses, along with the manager, each stopped by my table several times each, to be sure everything was ok, and to offer anything they could get for me. Another good sign is that they... More

My husband and I stopped at Leon's while attending a wedding in Dearborn over the weekend. The previous reviews are correct - it's a great diner with quick and friendly service. The breakfast is good and inexpensive. We each ordered omelets that were large in size and came with potatoes and toast for $6-7. Filled us up for the day!
