Leo's Country Oven Reviews
My husband and I have been to Leo's over the past 30 years. We have always been pleased with the food, service and atmoshere. I believe Leo's is one of the few resturants that still cook from scrach all the dinners, the meals are just delicious. Their sauces and gravies are made with wonderful Greek seasonings, not heavy. I can't say enough wonderful things about Leo's, Leo, his wife Labreen and his sons are all down to earth and care for their customers. When we go there we feel like we are having a meal with family. Yes at times the crowd is older but there is usually a nice mix of ages, predominately white but you are in the burbs. No one is turned away. I would give Leo's Country Oven 5 stars.
I hated going there for years when I was a little girl (beginning around age 5ish)because the crowd was older, I got bored easily and I was a very picky eater. Now that I am 25, I still feel the crowd is older, but thatís probably because anyone old or young can afford the prices... the crowd is people that discovered it when they were younger and can't get enough of it so they keep going. The amount of food you get is easily enough for two at most meals which is especially appreciated by this grad student who can either split it with a friend or take the rest home for another meal. It is the best kept secret around.A side note to a previous review, it is primarily an older white crowd and by older, I mean the average age is anywhere from 55-60 during most times, except when it gets later in the evening, then it is a younger crowd averaging around the late 20's to mid 30's. I have been in there with people that are a minority, different races and backgrounds and while people do look your way for a moment, there was no starring, glares, etc., they have simply observed someone that entered the restaurant like they would with someone that is white. In the 20 or so years I've been going there, they have been kind to me, even when I make outrageous requests (because of that pickiness that never went away as a child). I think anyone from any background would find the prices to be extremely reasonable, food that is tasty and will walk away having had their appetite satisfied. To those who feel that they want the waiters to socialize and wipe their mouths for them, they need to realize that the staff is doing their job and if you take the lack of conversation from your server personally you need to realize that the place is extremely busy and there are a lot of other people that want to get their food also. They give you your food without being invasive towards personal conversations you may have with the people you came with while still giving the service you require as a customer.
Everything at Leo's is good, filling and fair-priced. The employees are fast, friendly and talk with everyone as though they're family.They have diverse dining, employees and customers-all of which make for a favorable and memorable dining experience! Try Leo's- you won't regret it!
My husband and I decided to eat breakfast before going "Christmas Shopping". What a terrible mistake to stop at Leo's Country Oven. We are African-American people, when we got there needless to say only Caucasian people were there. We got stared at, snarled at! Very uncomfortable!!!! The food was ok, but the atomosphere was terrible. I didn't believe they had segregated resturants in the year of 2006-2007. I was wrong, they do. The wait-staff and customers made it clear and to the point, they didn't want any African-Americans back to Leo's Country Oven. What a shame!!!!!
Very good food and very nice place
Great family restaurant. Friendly, clean, warm atmosphere.I can feed a family of four for around $25.00 or less and that includes dessert. Lots of delicious food to choose from and not priced so high that it would break your wallet.
Nasty! Go to Country Boy instead.

Don't bring anything bigger than a midsized car. Parking is ridiculous.
