This restaurant has been a Maryland tradition for over 60 years. The flaky rectangular pizza crust and thick pepperoni have stood the test of time as both larger corporate chains and locally owned shops have transitioned to rounder pies. Ledo moved from its original location in Adelphi to College Park in 2010, bringing its charms, traditions and famous square pizza with it. Alongside its bestselling pizza and lasagna, the restaurant also sells other classic Italian dishes and American favorites including seafood, sandwiches and chicken.
While continuing to uphold its comfortable, family-style ownership and atmosphere, the restaurant offers an impressive amount of space that welcomes large parties, with multiple dining areas and a full bar. It has partnered with the university of Maryland for many events, and continues to satisfy families and visitors throughout College Park. If you’re a Maryland or Sports fan, there is no place better to grab a bite before or after a game. This IS the Original Ledo Restaurant. The tradition remains!
Keeping in line with Ledo Restaurant’s policy of fresh ingredients and homemade dishes, the meat used in the restaurant is all cut by hand. The thick pepperoni that made the company famous was originally used to save time, since using thicker slices of meat meant the job was done faster, according to the owner.
