First time and LAST time having Leo's Steaks. The cheesesteak meat had large pieces of grizzle / fatty parts that were very rubbery and inedible. Made me throw out the cheesesteak (and that has never happened b4. HA). Seriously was gross

When we moved to Philadelphia in 2002 we stayed with my brother-in-laws (brother if that makes sense) in Sharon hill in when we pulled the uhaul in the first place we wanted to eat at was a Cheese steak place and Leo's was it. We lived in Philly for four years and tried many different cheeses teaks, Geno's, Pats, Dalessandros, Chubs, you name we tried it. Leo's was always better we would take trips across the city to go Leo's passing all the others to get that awesome steak and it was great every time. Man I miss Philly sometimes. The best steak anywhere around the Philly area hands down.

We tried it on our way through on vacation last summer based upon favorable internet reviews, and I was not disappointed. My cheese steak and mushroom sandwich was huge and delicious. My wife and I ate a little more than half, and I ate the rest in the hotel room that night- it was even better as the flavors had kind of blended over the few hours since cooking. Leo doesn't run the place anymore, but one of his relatives does- he was really friendly. My youngest loved the hamburger they cooked. It was interesting talking to the Philadelphia Eagles fans outside when I let them know we're from the Dallas,TX area and big Cowboys fans- a little good-natured ribbing ensued.

Leo's makes the best Philly cheesesteaks ever! The rolls are to die for! The sandwiches are so big and juicy you can make more than one meal out of them.

I have grown up eating cheesesteaks from Leo's since I was a little girl. As a matter of fact, I can still remember when Leo's used to be at the Sharon Hill trolley stop a block up!

Why people swear up and down that Pat's or Geno's is the place to go if you want a real cheesesteak is beyond me. They are not real cheesesteaks. They're nothing more than a fatty mess with no taste on a roll. They definitely get too much hype for nothing. And they charge you an arm and a leg for that slop. Not even worth it.

The real deal is found at Leo's. They may be a little more in price compared to your local steak shops but I never complain because they way I see it, they are giving me more than my money's worth. They pack so much meat onto one roll that you can literally take enough steak off the roll to make two additional sandwiches. Their steak sandwiches are always fresh and there are no others that can even come close to comparison.

For all the shops around the nation that try to attract customers by saying they sell "real Philly cheesesteaks," you have a lot to learn. Don't say you offer a Philly cheesesteak until you've been to Leo's and see what one actually is. Broken up pieces of a steak on a roll isn't a cheesesteak!

Thanks for all the kick a** steaks over the years, Leo's. Hope you are around for many more generations to come!

Pros: Beats Pat's and Geno's by a landslide

Cons: Nothing

heres another hot spot that serves up a very good cheesesteak. They are packed with flavor and make you come back for more. You can get it whatever way you like it. They are always made fresh to order.

Born and raised right around the corner from Leo?s, remember when they started at the trolley stop as a fruit & produce stand. I?m sure glad they made the switch to steaks!! Now live in the Frederick MD area and can?t get a steak worth a darn down here. Every chance I get to come home I stop for the greatest steak around!!! I have friends here that I take up and they can not believe how great they are, truly awesome!!!

saw the reviews on line and had to check it out.... The place is run down looking and it looks like someones house....but it adds to the charm of how unbelievably AWESOME the steaks are. Pats and geno's you get a sliver of steak on a bun........Leos you get a ton of tender steak on a bun. Im driving up to philli this weekend for a job interview and im def stopping in again......!

I'm originally from DelCo, live in Poconos now. Every time I pass through or visit, I make sure I stop for a hoagie or a pizzasteak. I have recommended to people passing through from as far away as Jersey City and Virginia, none have been disappointed. I getting hungry just writing about this!!!
