Fun place to eat!

They serve great burgers and malts and have many other delicious items on their menu. They make sure you get plenty and it's fresh! The fifties music in the background it groovy also!

Fairly good service. Can be quite busy at times but is worth a small wait. Be sure to get a malt and the burger are done exactly the way you want them.

Each year on Veterans Day, the owner serves all vets whatever they choose to eat! He can usually be found standing just inside the door welcoming each one. If the burgers,malts, shakes, sandwiches, fries, weren't as amazing as they are, I would probably make several visits there a year, just to say thanks. If you like that cool 50's or... More

Our friends brought us here because it was the best malt shop around! The strawberry malt was amazing and so was the rueban! 50-60's style shop with great music and fantastic waitresses! Parking along the street. Check this place out!

I just love Leo's. It's the heart of Stillwater IMHO. I've never had anything but a burger, kettle chips and a malt. And for that, it is perfection. Real small town, not mall faux. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The place is intimate and comfortable. The food is fresh and first rate. Just thinking about the black and blue... More

We went on a Friday night at 5:00 and the timing was right. We ordered a Rachel and a Stilly Cheese Steak and they were wonderful. They have a bunch of historical signs and decorations from the 1950's that are fun to see. By 5:15 the place was packed.

Wow, I consider myself kind of a Chicken Wild Rice Soup Expert, but this may be the best ever! The Asian Chicken Salad was also Fantastic! The service was even better, Annabelle & Kate took great care of us!

Small, busy and low on the cleanliness scale. The food however was the shining star of our our visit. I enjoyed the tuna melt with waffle fries. More than ample portions for everyone at the table. A great place if you just want to eat good diner food in a short amount of time.
