Leo's Island BBQ

7665 W. Bell Road, 103 Peoria, AZ 85383 | Peoria | 623-878-1128

Location Description:

Located in the Arrowhead shopping district, this cheery, locally owned spot specializes in the Hawaiian plate lunch: A magical mass of two scoops of rice, mayonnaise-heavy macaroni salad, and mountains of meat piled into a plastic foam container. A menu of nearly 30 selections lists traditional Hawaiian plate lunches – Korean kalbi, Japanese katsu, Hawaiian kalua pork and loco moco (a hamburger patty, fried egg, and gravy) – as well as mixes and combos. And because the plates (all around eight bucks) are served up in portion sizes that, like the plate lunch’s history, seem most befitting following a hard day’s labor (or, sans surf, an afternoon of strip mall shopping), it’s a good idea to arrive at Leo’s on an empty stomach.
