What some people have said about Leo’s Steaks…
“You wanna know if a place makes good steaks? Go during off hours and see how busy they are. By 8:30 PM all the nearby stores on Chester Pike have turned out their lights – but at Leo’s, there’s a still line on one side of the counter and an 8-person steak crew hustling and banging away on the other.”
“‘Leo’s is the perfect name for this place, because the amount of tasty meat piled into Leo’s giant 18-inch roll is enough to feed an entire pack of hungry lions for a week. You can get a half sandwich of course, but if you’re into living large and living delicious, Leo’s 18-incher is the only way to go.”
“Leo’s will have to expand soon to house all of the awards it has won – Philadelphia Magazine’s ‘Best of Philly’ not once but TWICE, and the DelCo Daily Times ‘Readers’ Choice for Best Steak’ so many times they should retire the award. Leo’s has definitely put Folcroft on the map. (Where’s Folcroft again?)”
“I have lived in the area my whole life before moving to NC, while visiting our home state on vacation this last spring my boyfriend took me to Leos, which I have never been to. I ordered a small steak with extra cheese. I could barely eat it, it was the most delicious thing with meat and extra cheese spilling out of the top of it! When you are from the area you have your favorite steak shops but this is my new favorite! Their prices are good, their portions are great and I can’t wait to go back. I might have one over-nighted to NC!”
Leo’s Steaks Largest Cheese Steak Review
The following review is from the Best Philly Cheese Steaks Blog.
Leo’s Steaks is located at 1403 Chester Pike, Folcroft, PA 19032. Established somewhere in the early 1970s, Leo’s is an extremely popular place in Delaware County, PA. Not too far from Central Philadelphia, Leo’s popularity has echoed all over the city as they have won various best Philly cheese steak awards for many years.
Leo’s Steaks sells a large variety of sandwiches including hoagies, burgers, and steaks. They also sell 3 and 6 foot long hoagies. However, their real popularity comes from their large cheese steak, a monster 18 inch long sandwich for $15.30. There small steak is a great value too for $8.10 at about a foot long.
Leo’s sandwich is beautiful. I bought the 18 incher and had to share. I mean I could eat it but it would be too much. They stack their steak high in the sandwich too so you are not only eating a supremely large sandwich but you are also tackling the giant portions that they put on there. Honestly, an average person can eat a third of this monster and be full.
Leo’s Steaks chops their steaks as opposed to using steak strips. Their rolls are semi soft Italian rolls. For a sandwich this size, though it would be difficult to have an ultra soft loaf of bread, as it may not hold the contents well. The onions were nicely browned and mixed well with the steak and American cheese.
An interesting observation I made is that the farther you go away from the Big Three Philly cheese steak joints, the more you will notice that there are less rules. For example, Leo’s didn’t even ask me if I wanted a specific kind of cheese so I assume that they only use American cheese (believe it or not this is the majority way in Philly). However, at Pat’s or Geno’s Steaks if you don’t tell them what kind of cheese you want then you may be setting yourself up for an argument.
Leo’s staff is fast and efficient. They do have tables outside to eat if it is a nice day. I totally am convinced that Leo’s Steaks gives you value for your dollar. I don’t really have any suggestions for them because I feel that they have the proper formula down. They definitely have the longest sandwich that I have eaten out of all the cheese steak places. I think that they should continue to market themselves as the longest Philly cheese steak as that is what will stand in their customers minds.
