Graceland Wine Shoppe has the best gyros around... also good for a quick carry-out lunch!

Not sure why people like this Leo's so much... the one in Commerce is much better, in my opinion (and in the opinion of many of my friends and family as well). The White Lake Leo's seems to have a lot of turnover in their wait staff, and we've had spotty and occasionally slow service there. One thing they do have going for them is the occasional "family night" where a clown shows up and does balloon animals and face painting.

In our opinion, The Root is overpriced and has a menu that is too sparse. It's a nice idea, but any time a burger is more than $6, you have to ask whether it is really worth the money.

Dave's Coney is a great place for breakfast and lunch -- very inexpensive compared to the others on this list. Also, it used to be very dingy and dirty inside, but they seem to have cleaned it up significantly and it's now very pleasant. The only down-side is that they close relatively early and aren't open for dinner, they only accept cash, and they are small and fill up rather fast during the prime breakfast and lunch times. We love their American Fries with breakfast, their coneys are better than the nearby Leo's, and the ham they serve with the breakfast specials is a very generous portion for the money.

Siam Fusion has great food. Drawbacks, however, is that they are closed on Mondays, and they can take an EXTREMELY long time for food prep, especially in the evenings. We have called there for take-out orders at 7:45 and been told that they aren't accepting any more orders and that the current wait time for carry-out is over an hour. In one case, I called for a take-out order at 5:30, and was told my order would be ready at 7:45!!! Also, we have been in the restaurant before around 6:30pm, and waited up to 60 minutes or more for our food to arrive after ordering. The food is great - it just seems like they can't keep up with the amount of traffic they are getting some times. We've often wondered why they don't buy the space next door to the restaurant, make the kitchen larger, and hire more cooks.

Surprised Billy's Tip N' Inn is not on this list. They are pretty fast at lunch time, have huge portions (their chicken pot pie is amazing, and if you order it you should be sure you only ask for the "half order" because a full order could easily feed 3 or 4 people). Great reuben sandwich, delicious salads, good breadsticks, and the wait staff is always friendly!

Eric- I'm really sorry you feel that way. Our servers stay with us for at least a year, and many have been with me since the beginning. The only servers we lose are when they move on in school or to career changes. I hope you'll give us a chance to be better next time you're in. By the way, we are the only Leo's to have Glutten Free menu items and a 16 ounce USDA Select T-Bone steak for $7.99!
