I love Cajun food. If it's got crawfish, gator, roux, rice and the rest, I'm a happy man.

But MAN, is it difficult to find a place that understands how to create gator bites without gristle. (Yes, I AM looking at you, Gainesville. Sorry. Just sayin', you know?) Mulate's in New Orleans gets it. Heck, most places in Louisiana get it. But until I ate at Neon Leon's, I just didn't think Florida got it.

Tried these guys for lunch, ordering some crawfish and gator. All delicious! Nice crisp fry, minimal grease. Nice local suds on tap. Some music, but not so much that I couldn't understand my companion. The etouffee was just as it should be -- rice, some finely-tuned roux, and a pile of delicious crawdads.

Now, understand, it was just lunch. Hey, maybe they get busy and noisy and hot at dinner, so take this review with a pinch of gumbo.<g>

Good food, good portions, good price. Fried green tomatoes were delicious and jambalaya was spicy with flavor.

Cramped, busy place but make sure you go and see the show Cajun Dave puts on. Gets you going with the music. Very entertaining. Beer is cold, food is very good.

First, we did not have reservations. We just arrived in Homosassa Springs and took a chance. The attendant (a lovely lady with long curly hair) was very accomodating. We were seated at the best table in the house, I swear. The entertainment was the best ever (we could have listened all night except more and more people were coming, so we could not stay too long). We all agreed (6) that our food was delicious. The prime rib was excellent, done to perfection. The corn bread and hush puppies were adictive. We wished we had saved room for the wonderful looking blueberry cobbler with ice cream, but we were all full! We will definitely go back on our return trip to this area. Neon Leon was fun and fantastic in every way. Great entertainment, great food and it seems like the locals will agree because it was packed.
