If there is one thing other than the unique ketchup flavors everyone told me about, that keeps me coming to Leons it is the craft beer selection. If you are a beer geek like me, you can have a great time sampling some of the many differnt craft beers they have to offer anyime.. ( after "5 oclock" of course )

I love Leon's Full Service. Their patio is awesome in nice weather, their staff is great, and OMG the French fries! I sometimes find myself daydreaming about them. I do think some of the menu items are a bit pricey...I just don't see myself going to a casual bar like Leon's and dropping $25 on an entree, you know? So I stick to sandwiches...and French fries!

This review is long overdue for a great gastropub in Decatur. LEON's, started by folks who know beer and food, is a slam-dunk. Great atmosphere, great menu, great staff. Nice for a date with the wife or hanging with the buds. Go there.

The cocktails and food use interesting and exotic ingredients you won't find anywhere else, resulting in a truly memorable and unique dining experience. The staff is engaging and happy. Competitively priced and a fantastic deal considering how unusual and flavorful everything is. The specialty cocktails alone warrant a visit.

Leons is an odd place, which for Decatur is good and bad. Let's start with the good. Interesting decor, great Decatur location and friendly staff. The bad -- the beer list is quite funky... so much so that you are basically ordering blindly (via broad genres like pilsner) the first few times you visit. It seems they focus more on finding what they think is a hidden gem than giving you the customer what you want. Leons also seems to have a special desire to promote frites... french fries to the rest of us. They are prominent on the menu and have numerous sauces. Problem is -- they aren't very good. Average fries. So why make a big deal about them? Overall, I will visit again -- decent place and the crowd is nice.
