“A greasy spoon diner that does breakfast right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Based on other reviews we decided to give this out-of-the-way diner a try. We were not disappointed! We both had one of the daily specials, and neither of us were able to finish, despite our best efforts. The Jeff Island was almost overflowing the plate with delicious sausage gravy, mushrooms and other toppings. My B&G, eggs were prepared perfectly, but the highlights were the plate sized pancakes and the cinnamon roll. It is a true diner experience, so if you are expecting cloth linens, this is not the place for you. But perhaps the best part of this experience was our seasoned diner server, Roxxi.

“Food is so good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Leo's has the best breakfast anywhere in Omaha. The omelets have a thin egg which I really like so you can actually taste the delicious sweet flavored ham and loads of cheese. You can get a huge pancake instead of toast with your omelet. They toast their English muffins on the grill, unbelievable how good they are considering it is just an English muffin. Prices are so reasonable...cheaper than Perkins or Village Inn and the food is obviously much better. Very friendly staff and food comes very quickly. Definitely not a fancy place at all but I like the modest atmosphere and I'd go no matter what for the food. Plan to continue going back over and over to keep getting the goods and try other menu items.

“Where everyone knows your name....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Leo's is a classic diner, with a classic diner menu + a twist. If you want white linen napkins and uptight atmosphere - stay home. If you want a plate overflowing with great, hot, fresh food and your coffee cup always full, then this is the place to be. Cinnamon rolls rule.
