Flautas for All My Friends!!!

     For the last few months, I’ve been walking by and driving by Leo’s Mexican Grill on Broadway in Downtown Long Beach.  It changed owners not too long ago.  While the old place looked pretty sketchy, I kept wondering if the new restaurant would be any good.  So finally today, I tried it… and I was quite pleased!  The inside is clean, the employees were friendly and accommodating… and here’s the best part, the food was delicious!  I ordered the chicken flautas – thought I’d start simple.  The outside was crunchy and flavorful and the chicken tasted fresh and (I know people hate this word) MOIST!  I got four little flautas, which came with guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes, for only $4.08!!!  It was a full meal!  You can’t even eat that cheap at Burger King or McDonald’s anymore (excluding the dollar menu, of course).  I’m excited to go back and try the crispy tacos and burritos (the gal who works there suggested the shrimp burrito).  If it’s another glorious day outside, you can enjoy the sunshine on one of their outside tables.  Turns out there’s a Leo’s on 7th Street in Long Beach too – I might have to check that one out, as well.  Until then, dig in, save some dough and leave satisfied!
