Wagon Léo 1946


In 1946, Léopold Auguste Emmanuel opened his first Léo chips shop in an old army tram wagon.


Following the design of the first Pullman style wagon, Léopold travelled from fair to fair selling chips throughout Belgium. He settled in Bastogne in 1954.

After renting for 40 years, Serge was finally able to buy the land on which the family restaurant stood and to open the new Bistro Léo (inaugurated in 1990).


Having earned his stripes at the hotel and catering school, Serge (Léopold’s son) took over the reins in the kitchen and gradually upgraded the chips shop to the first restaurant.
