If you're in Stillwater, MN looking for a place to eat Leo's is the place to be!!

This fine establishment takes you back in time to the 1950's era, with the decor, food, & music it sets the mood. The staff... read more

Went in for the Best Burger in the Valley contest....very tasty...wish my server would've listened when I asked for my hot fudge shake to come with my burger but she didn't so it was almost gone and I was almost full when my burger arrived! Oh well, can't have it all I guess! Enjoy!!

A fun place with a menu that fits the vibe of this 50s style shop. We are boomers & it was fun to hear the "old" music -- The burgers looked tasty and there were lots of options but we opted for lighter choices -- a hot dog basket, grilled cheese and a salad. Also thought it was really great... More

We went on a Saturday night, 4 adults, 3 kids. We waited 15 minutes but it was well worth it! Great burgers (though admittedly I'm vegetarian most of the time), waffle fries and malts. Very good atmosphere for families as it's loud enough that our kids didn't disturb the peace. I had he black and blue with sautéed onions and... More

Leo's has the best burger in town by far! The malts and nostalgic surroundings are also wonderful! Very nice family that owns it too!

We'd all love to say we grew up on malt shops and Elvis music, but in reality we were Pokemon freaks who lived on Caprisun and Lunchables. Le sigh. I'd stick to malts and waffle fries which were both exactly what the doctor ordered. Honestly, the burger we had (jalapeños, pepperjack, etc.) was pretty meh. Not terrible, just not worth... More

Stopped by for a malt and a bite to eat, couldn't decide on french fries or onion rings, no problem, they have a 1/2 and 1/2 basket. Had this with a turtle malt. Nothing AMAZING, but very good and cute place. Worth the stop.

All I had was a banana split, but I have to say this was the best ice cream I think I have ever had. The whole atmosphere reminded me of a soda fountain of years ago. If I ever make it back to MN again, I'm definitely going to stop here again.

Three adult & two grandkids ate here. Very kid friendly - paper place mats & crayons, also kid's menu. Adults split two Monday Specials - burger, fries & shake for less than $8. The food was served hot and there was plenty. Of course, the shakes were delicious ! The place was busy & our wait wasn't too bad.

We ordered shakes in their walk-Up window (the entrance is on Main, The window is on Chestnut [the same street as the bridge]). It was a gorgeous fall day, and they were slammed, so the wait was really long, and they even quit taking preferred for a few minutes after our order. Three out of four of us chose to... More
