Best Steak you’ve had in Texas at Any Price! Yes, we’ve eaten at all of fancy high dollar places in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio & Austin. However, you haven’t had the best steak until you’ve found The Leona General Store. It’s only open Friday &...More

Come with an appetite!!! The steaks are huge, tender, and delicious!! So very well seasoned!! It’s a very “down home “ atmosphere and everything is wonderful!! The rolls, salad, potatoes, and dessert are all fabulous!! But, arrive early because there’s always a crowd!!
