It wasn't easy to find, but well worth the search! Any bbq joint that looks old on the outside must be amazing on the inside. The smokehouse in the back was a hint. Had the beef ribs and pulled pork, and the special recipe slaw was so good! This place was as authentic as a southern bbq restaurant should be.... More

Beef ribs are boneless and very tender. BBQ sauce is great and doesn't over power the meat. They cook BBQ on a big pit out back with hardwood. This is old school great BBQ. Just FYI you will need to pay extra if you share a plate of BBQ.

Leatha's Bar-B-Que Inn will not impress anyone at first sight, the place is a simple building with no frills or red carpet; however, once you get inside you won't want to leave. I have had many types of BBQ in my life, from Carolina to Texas, and I can honestly say that Leatha's is up there with best of them!... More

I came to Hattiesburg (and the state of Mississippi, for that matter) for the first time this weekend to attend a conference at USM. During a reception, I had a conversation with another attendee about recommended restaurants in the area. Without hesitation, she mentioned Leatha's. Her advice was well-taken. I drove three miles to this restaurant and was not disappointed.... More

As you pull up the driveway of Leatha's Bar B Que you know you're in for a special treat. The smell of BBQ fills the air. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu. I've lived in Memphis and this compares with the best. My favorites are the ribs and pulled pork. Relax and Enjoy !

I grew up as a kid eating the greatest BBQ on the planet from Letha's. The food is always tip top. If it's your once in a lifetime chance to go here, DO IT!

When my husband, children and I visited Leatha's Bar-B,Que we found it to be a good place for great food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, it's a restaurant that's been in business for quite a while now, we were all very pleased.

No need to write this as Letha's is pretty much a legend by now. I always go for the pulled pork plate with potato wedges and cole slaw. Man o man it's good every time!

The food here is better than most BBQ restaurants in hattisburg. It is expensive though. They even charge for a extra plate if you want to share. Won't go back.
