Where to eat in Galveston: Leo’s Cajun Corner
If you are looking for local eats with a Cajun flair- Leo’s Cajun Corner is the place! You know you are in the right kind of place when you pull up and you can see the smoker going and wood piled all around.
This shop is small but packs big flavor. Leo’s offers ribs, brisket, sausage, and more by the pound, but have great choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I picked up a shrimp po’boy for lunch and it was the best I have ever had. And I have eaten a LOT of po’boys. The slaw on the sandwich paired with the spicy, lightly breaded shrimp was scrumptious. I ate it all.
If you’ve never had boudin balls, you are missing out. I had never had one until I moved to Galveston- now my life is changed. Those deep-fried, spicy nuggets are the things I dream of when I want food I am not supposed to eat- which is often.
We’ve also eaten there for breakfast and had a breakfast bowl and a toaster. Just simple, basic food that tasted fabulous. One of the best things about eating at Leo’s is that the food is, well- cheap. Not in the way it’s made or the portion sizes, but the price. On an island that can be a bit pricey because of the tourism, Leo’s is a nice surprise.
