getting the opportunity to meet one of
Oklahoma City’s newest celebrities
on Saturday August 18th, 2007 while walking
through Russell’s on our first break, Charles
he loved the band and wanted us to visit
his establishment and try out his wonderful
food. His restaurant was recently featured
on the FOOD NETWORK show called “Diners,
Drive-Ins & Dives” hosted by
we reported in the last news article,
the band visited LEO’s BBQ
on Saturday September 22nd at 1:00 p.m.
On the way, we found out from Charles
that the restaurant had recently moved
to Broadway and
just east of 4th street in downtown OKC.
It was really easy to find and did not
take long for us to get to the new location.
we arrived, the staff took care of us
and before long we were eating some of
the best BBQ we have had in a long time.
“Try the BBQ sauce. Red is HOT,
White is Not!” Charles exclaimed
to us on the phone as he was unable to
be there when we arrived as he was in
Tulsa on a business trip. Well, he was
right. The HOT sauce was very hot but
it was very delicious.
you visit LEO’s yourself try the
plates we dug into which had a little
bit of everything. The combination plate
called "LEO's Special" was awesome.
Ribs, chopped BBQ, sausage, and even bologna
that was so yummy. Mix in some beans and
potato salad and top it all off with Charles’
famous Strawberry and banana cake and
you will leave the same way we did - very
satisfied and very happy.
go out to nephew Reggie and
the rest of the LEO’s staff who
took care of us on this beautiful September
day and THANKS to Charles himself who
treated us like celebrities. We will see
them all soon.
