Loading up at Leo's

Posted By on Tue, Mar 11, 2008 at 2:03 PM


What would we do without Joel DiPippa? Miss a feast at Leo's on Kavanaugh, for one thing.

I had the opportunity to catch up with a friend from out of town recently.  When the time came to get a bit to eat, we headed to Leo's Greek Castle.  It is a consistent favorite for being tasty, affordable, and well loved by the populace.  Consistently placing in the ArkTimes "Best of" competitions, old habits were hard to beat there. 
We started with a serving of Hummus ... fantastic and tasty and I can never get enough of it.

We both went after Gyros Platters next.  Yes, the meat is on the fatty side ... no, I can not tell you exactly how good or bad for me the tzatziki sauce is.  But I love it.  These are my favorite gyros in the state and all others are judged against them.

My friend went for a piece of Baklava to round out the meal while I made the final efforts to finish the hummus.

In the end, we were full and happy and the table was littered with empty dishes.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
