Leon’s Burger Hut

I just noticed the new paint job in the window of Leon’s the other day – was going to take a pic, but now Gothamist has saved me the trouble. Maybe its been like that for ages, but I don’t get by Leon’s during their regular hours.

In 15 years or so, I’ve been to Leon’s maybe half a dozen times. Maybe. That’s because of their hours, not the food (which is OK, not worth going out of your way for). Once upon a time, all the restaurants in the area closed right after lunch – workers’ hours, not for anyone looking for dinner. La Villita used to be that way, but they’ve seen the light. The restaurant that was in the Bonita space was too, in a big way – show up much after 12:30 and they were breaking everything down for the day.
