Unique small town charm

A traditional small restaurant that is a must if you are in the area. Great roast beef and ham sandwiches like grandma used to make or a dinner plate. But the PIES are worth going out of your way for. If near Alexandria, worth the diversion to get a pie.

We've never seen a more beautiful presentation of pies! My Mom and I were in the area and went for lunch. I got catfish and she got the ham. But there were so many pies!!! You can get corn muffins and greens when you sit down, if you ask. This is a Louisiana experience not to be missed...

Best pies ever. We were out on a family drive and stopped. Haven't been here in years but the first bite brought back good memories. Lemon, coconut, and chocolate are the family favorites. We also grabbed ham sandwiches which are filling! But we still had room for more pies!

By accident, found myself close enough to re-visit. When I lived in Louisiana I would frequent this place just about every time I drove to theShreveport area from New Orleans. Back then, it was always an exciting expectation of the trip. 40 years later, still a great place, but having been married for the past 30 years to an incredibly... More

If you live Pie's I'm almost certain you will not find a better pie that you will find @ Lea's... Word in any human language could not possible explain the absolute delight your taste buds have while eating a Lea's pie... I will be back...

The food was just ok. The pies were nothing g spectacular in my opinion. The coconut pie didn't taste like coconut and had none it. Pecan pie ok. Chocolate pie was just nasty. Won't be going back.

It's hard to review a place that is known for pies, but also serves lunch. I'm ONLY reviewing the pies we've eaten here. Pecan - tastes homemade. Not overly gelatinous. It has a rich buttery flavor and the pecans aren't too chewy. The piece of pie had had fresh pecans on it. Lemon meringue - The pie was very lemony.... More

Near the crossroads of Louisiana, politicians have stopped here since the Longs. The gracious service is matched only by the luncheon specials and sandwiches--roasted pork and ham (a tradition there). The pies are memorable in range and taste.

My wife, my two daughters, a dear friend from Louisiana, and I were seeing all the important sites in Louisiana. We had been driving around for hours. We got lost near Alexandria. We couldn't find a good place to eat. We were all tired, annoyed, and hungry. Finally, we found it: Lea's Lunchroom. Our friend had been there before, and... More

Have be stopping at Leas since 1950's and it's still outstanding. My favorite is the banana pie. Also coconut, chocolate, peach and blackberry pies. The ham sandwich it worth the stop all by itself.
