Leo's has the best sauce in the world. My favorite are the ribs, sliced brisket and hot links! The strawberry banana cake is a must! Happy Eating!

I have always had the ribs in this timely restaurant. I have never been disappointed. The lunch crowd often is quite large. Expect to smell of smoke when returning to work. One of the time honored traditions at Leo's is the slice of warm strawberry banana cake the waitress brings you without charge! The cake, by itself, is worth the... More

Incredible BBQ, some of the best I've ever had and I've visited a heck of a lot of BBQ joints all over. Service was great, waitress was full of suggestions as to what was the best to order from the extensive menu. Sooooooooooooo, good I will be back again for sure.

We went on a day when the fair was in town so it wasn't crazy like it usually is. Brisket, bologna, sausage,pulled pork and last but not least, the ribs all great. Managed to buy a bottle of sauce, too. Service and Staff friendly as usual. Ohh ...... and the cake....never forget that cake.... yum.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend. Our group ordered the brisket and turkey sandwiches with onion rings. Unfortunately, we didn't notice them bringing in the boxes of frozen onion rings until after we had ordered. Meat on the sandwiches was good, although the sandwiches self destructed within seconds on the flimsy white bread. Onion rings were WAY overcooked... More

We stopped off at Leo's on a road trip to Indiana. The place is a total dive. Pros- employees are friendly, prices are good, food was really good, the brisket was cooked perfect and the BBQ sauce was amazing Cons- divey and no healthy options like fish or salad

Ended up solo in OKC and stopped by because Guy Fieri told me to (on TV not in person). He hasn't had the pleasure of meeting me. Had the Leo's Special Lite plate - a sample of all their meats. Great rib and pulled pork. Not a fan of the baloney or sausage. The complimentary pound cake with bananas and... More

After reading so many rave reviews of this place, we decided to drop in on our way to Kansas. We should've kept on driving. Although the chopped brisket was fine, the sauces (hot and mild) were...off. The mild had a sickly sweet taste, the same flavor combination found in the baked beans. The spicy had a very strong vinegar aftertaste.... More

Leo's BBQ is some of the best lip. -smacking ribs I've eaten. This a true dive, from paper towels on the table to styrofoam plates. But the service is warm and welcoming. They treat you like family, and the food is amazing. If you think that some of the best food can be found in unexpected places, Leo's is the... More

We were a family of 6 travelling to Oklahoma City from Canada. A friend of ours recommended trying Leo's for authentic southern BBQ. Set the address in our GPS and almost missed the place. Once we were inside we knew we were in the right place. We had a little sample of everything, baked beans, potato salad, white bread, ribs,... More
