Sandwich Shop | Street Food
One of the best

Even if you don’t think Leo’s makes the best cheese steak in Philadelphia (as do many loyalists), there can be little doubt that it makes the biggest: half a yard of Amoroso Bakery bread laden with pounds of beef and onions all trowel-cut on the griddle into a fine hash and saturated with melted cheese. If you give the management two days notice, you can get hoagies that are three or six feet long.

Steaks are available with mushrooms or pizza sauce, with or without cheese, or in the hoagie configuration, meaning lettuce and tomato added. The classic configuration of meat and cheese and onions, and perhaps a scattering of peppers and pickles, is a Philadelphia must-eat.

Leo’s offers no indoor seating. It’s just a counter where you place your order and can watch the grill man cook it. Picnic tables are provided outside.

What to Eat
Leo’s, Cheese Steak
Cheese Steak
This 'large' cheese steak, shown alongside a dollar bill to help gauge its length, is more than enough sandwich for two hungry people. Half sandwiches are available for about half price, and even one of those is a challenge. Note how the cheese is virtually melted into the meat. Pickles and peppers are welcome taste-buds jolts while ingesting massive amounts of meat, cheese, and bread.
