A friend and I stopped here because we were looking for something other than the usual fast food while on a road trip. The homey, country store atmosphere was appealing. There were only three entrées and two sandwiches on the menu that day. My friend and I both ordered the roast beef sandwich. The sandwich did not come with any... More

This little place looked like a neat, local sort of place to stop in on our way to Breaux Bridge for a swamp tour. We'd heard it mentioned but we rather disappointed for the amount of money spent on our lunch, The waitress was very personable and the service was fine. However, the lunch, at $9.95, consisted of one very... More

Have purchased pies here many times. Have always been satisfied with the pies received. A little out of the way if driving I-49, but worth it for the pies.

Stopped for pie, but arrived during lunch. Had a roast beef and wife had ham sandwich. We split 1/2 of each. Really liked both sandwiches. Pecan Pie was good. Great throwback place.

Yesterday was the third time in a row I have stopped at Lea's while in Alexandria. The meal was okay but nothing special. I once again paid $20 for not one but two pies. The chocolate was okay, but the cherry was so sour we had to throw it away. Never again Lea's! An expensive lesson but I'll not be... More

I saw the highway sign and decided to exit, as it was a good time for lunch. I think that the diner was about 5 miles east of I-49, but well worth the short drive! I knew when I pulled into the parking lot that this would be a great place. They have been there since the 1920's and it... More

Lea's was recommended by Jim at Herby K's in Shreveport. He said you have to try their ham sandwich and pie, since he took such good care of us at his place we wanted to give it a try. LeCompte was a precious little town and Lea's Lunchroom is a simple place to have a meal. When I asked the... More

Always get the ham sandwich, and add a slice of pie---then get a whole pie to take home. Been going there all my life and have never once been disappointed!

Lea's is an old fashioned southern country restaurant. It has been in the same family for more than the sixty years I have been eating there. Lea's call to fame are their homemade pies. They have good southern plate lunches, but my favorite is their ham sandwich served with sliced baked ham, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayonnaise, and, their special ham... More

We read that Lea’s were known for their pies. We stopped and ordered a slice of cherry, and a slice of apple. I always have a big sweet tooth and love pie but this time the slices stayed on the plate. A bite of each and I was convinced to wait till I could get to another restaurant for a... More
