I first heard about Leon’s Full Service in an article in Atlanta magazine in 2010 about “Cheap Eats” and they were going on about the selection of pub frites.
Then a lawyer friend told me about this place in Decatur that served bacon, by the glass. By the glass, you ask?
Yep. With a side of peanut butter for dipping. How in the world they came up with that combination, I’ll never know. I don’t think it’s the kind of thing where you’re sitting around and trying to decide what sandwich spread goes best with breakfast meat. I guess it is just serendipity.
How is it? I don’t know. I don’t eat peanut butter. I had gone to lunch with Jo and Colleen, so I turned to Colleen – she didn’t eat bacon at that time. So we turned to Jo to give the verdict on the combination. According to her, it was a winner.
I will say that it was pretty tasty bacon. But then, you have to ask the universal question – “Is there really such a thing as BAD bacon?” I believe there is good bacon, better bacon and great bacon, but, intrinsically, there is no bad bacon. Just good bacon prepared poorly.
I did order a burger with their pub frites. The burger was good. The fries were excellent.
