‘Best Burger in the Valley’ Tour: Leo’s Grill and Malt Shop


For the past five years a group of downtown Stillwater restaurants has put on the “Best Burger in the Valley” contest benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. To date, the contest has raised more than $50,000.

In support of the cause, I’m on a burger tour of each of the seven restaurants in the contest–and without inserting my opinion– to tell you what you can look forward to in the coming weeks if you have a Best Burger card.

The fifth stop on Stillwater Current’s “Best Burger in the Valley” tour took me to Leo’s Grill & Malt Shop, where I found this:


Texas Burger

Leo’s offers up several burgers on their menu for the “Best Burger” competition. The Texas Burger is a steak-seasoned patty with A-1 and cheddar cheese, topped with an onion ring and served on Texas Toast. You can also choose from Leo’s new bacon, egg and cheeseburger, and old standby’s like Mucho Leo’s, the Black’nd Blue, Mushroom and Swiss, Patty Melt, Leo’s Melt, Gardenbuger, Chili Cheeseburger and Bacon Cheddar Burger.

I know there are many others enjoying this contest, so please feel free to share your thoughts on each burger in the comment section below.

Stillwater Current’s “Best Burger in the Valley” Tour will be making stops at these fine establishments:



The Best Burger in the Valley card costs $30 (value: $65), and will get you a burger at each of the participating restaurants through March. Voting ends April 15, and the winner will be announced in late-April.
