Bland food?

was very surprised that the mexican food here was as bland as it was. I had been there a few years ago and the food had way more flavor.

Waited 40 min to be greeted and when the waitress finally realized she had a table... Mind you we were the only table there. She laughed with her co workers about it and still took 10 minutes to actually come over and get our order. Besides the totally unprofessional staff, the food is good.

This restaurant has the best Mexican food in Norfolk, at least in the Guadalajaran/Central Mexican cuisine which I grew up on outside Mexico City/the DF. Fresh ingredients, excellent prices, and I eat here about once a week.

EXCELLENT food. Good Service, friendly staff. Reasonably priced. This is a great Mexican restaurant. It is downtown at 116 W. Norfolk Avenue so most people out of town coming to Norfolk will not know it is there. Our Motel room listed it in it's brochure and I am glad they did.

Wanted to go to a non-chain place for lunch. All three of us ordered something different from the lunch menu. Everyone thought the food was good but that portions were small. My tamale was kind of smashed flat with a brown sauce on it. Service was ok. Prices are very reasonable.

This is a mexican spot in downtown Norfolk. I have been there many times and have never been dissapointed, however have never been blown away, food is good quality and price is right. There are times that the wait staff is more concerned about talking than waiting on customers.

I have never been let down by Leon's. They are always so quick to get your order and your food is delivered quick and it's delicious every time! They have awesome margarita specials that are as equally delicious as anything on the menu. I'd recommend Leon's to anyone. Love love love it! Keep up the good work! You're awesome!

My wife and I recently ate here and were really disappointed with the service. Our waitress was unfriendly, our beer was warm and when our food arrived, it was cold. We will try Leon again but I hope the service improves.

My favorite part is the 99 cent margaritas. They are made RIGHT and the food is always pretty good, too!
