If you’re in Brevard County and you’re in the mood for Mexican, you can’t do any better than El Leoncito Mexican and Cuban Restaurant.
I stopped in one Fall afternoon last year; it was my second visit. And I thoroughly enjoyed my late lunch.
I arrived in the awesome mid-afternoon time when you’re likely to have little-to-no competition for the server’s attention. The server and the chef, more to the point. I was expecting good things from that visit, and I was not disappointed.
I ordered the Arroz con Pollo, thinking that a Chicken and Rice dish is bound to be a pretty darn good lunch in any kind of eatery, anywhere.
And, yes, their take on this favorite made an excellent and very filling lunch. It came with the customary chips and freshly-made salsa, as one would expect.
My service was very good. Brittany was attentive but didn’t overplay the role, so to speak, as can happen when a server has only one or two tables in those in between times of a shift.
The moderate prices and the colorful, one-off vibe there added to my very favorable impression.
I recommend El Leoncito without hesitation. If you’re anywhere around in the Titusville/Spacecoast area, stop and pay them a visit!
El Leoncito can be found at 4280 S. Washington in Titusville, Florida.
