Leatha's BBQ, is a great option in this area of Mississippi. It has a wonderful staff. It is a hole in the wall, but I prefer a hole in the wall, when it comes to BBQ. The menu is limited, but that's usually how it is in a lot of BBQ restaurants. This means they are looking for quality, not... More

I really can not understand how family friends "advised" us not to come here but glad we did not listen to them. Menu is short but food is delicious. Meat is always tender and cooked the way you ordered. Service was great even though it was a busy evening. Don't listen to rumors and come and have a nice meal... More

Great hole in the wall! Very friendly, great bbq, great secret. A little pricey but worth every penny. You will need to wear your fat jeans/sweat pants for later though lol!

I am always looking for the nontraditional places to eat. After reading the reviews on TA we decided to stop in on our way to NOLA. My wife and I split a combination plate consisting of pulled pork, ribs and brisket and all three were great. We will most defiantly stop here the next time through.

I used to go to Leatha's years ago when it was in another town in a broken down shack by train tracks with a curtain for the bathroom door. I couldn't have cared less. The food is THAT good. There is only one leathas anywhere and I mean an-y-where.

We stopped here on a trip that was dedicated to barbecue and Leatha's didn't disappoint. We got the ribs and they were fall-off-the-bone tender! The sides were also good, especially the cole slaw. The sauce on the ribs is definitely sweet, but delicious. To top off the meal we got the pecan pie which was also excellent. Don't miss this... More

I ordered the 6 bone rack of ribs with beans and slaw. The ribs were tender and fell off the bones. The beans were seasoned just right with just a hint of spices. The slaw was creamy and chopped just right. My wife's regular size pulled bar-b-que sandwich was piled high with tender meat and creamy slaw- so much meat... More

Not fancy by a long shot but oh so good, be careful not to hurt yourself. Old southern charm and good ole family recipes.

Leathas' was a great find. The family story is the reason for their success. The ribs were huge and perfectly smoked. Good luck picking sides, they're all great and homemade. Leathas son gave me a tour and demonstration of their smoker. Never a trip through Mississippi without stopping!!
