“Try the Fantastic Soup!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2008

We decided to have dinner (we had a large group of 12) at El Leoncito because it was right across U.S. 1 from a great viewing place for a shuttle launch. We were all seated right away and right after dinner walked across the road to watch the night launch, with the countdown narrated on a local AM radio station. But the best part was the fantastic Albondigas soup, made with little Mexican-style meatballs. Until that night, the best Albondigas soup we had was at a little place near Venice Beach in L.A.

Can't wait to go back there again!

“give it a miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2008

They moved this place a few years ago and it has disappointed us on a few occasions, we do not use it now. The food is not bad and the service is passable, even the prices are not high but somehow the whole place does not gel. You can do better in Titusville.

“Our favorite Mexican Restaurant ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2008

We had eaten at this restaurant a year ago and loved it, so when the shuttle was being launched on March 11, we knew where our dinner was going to be. We had a wonderful meal there and the service is fantastic too. Then we asked if we could stay parked in their parking lot to view the shuttle and were given permission to do so. Too bad the shuttle launch was so brief after the long night of waiting. As for our meals, I had a Fajita Chicken Salad that was great and my husband had a Steak Picaka (not sure of the spelling) that he just loved too. I had some of his beans, as I really like them.

“Amazing Mexican Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2008

This is without a doubt mine and my family's favorite Mexican/Cuban restaurant. The food there is amazing and you definitely get your money's worth every time you go there. They have had consistant employment for many many years [all of which are very friendly and willing to help you]. Overall, it is just a great and enjoyable place to eat with delicious food.
