Better than Memphis BBQ! The "real deal" barbecue made with patience, love, and a whole lot of soul! The soul is in all of the food, the atmosphere, and the service! My wife and I tried the platter consisting of: ribs, brisket, sausage and bologna,...More

Drove through an Oklahoma rain storm (at least no tornado, but it wouldn’t matter) to eat at Leo’s. Last ate there several decades ago when I lived in OKC. Some places get better due to time and romanticizing the memory. Leo’s is as good as...More
