Leatha's BBQ is a hidden gem. It can be tricky to find; it's tucked behind and next to the DQ. From the outside, it doesn't look like much. But boy oh boy, is the food ever good. By far the best BBQ (and I've had a lot of BBQ all over the country) I've ever had. The sides are also... More

My wife and I were visiting Hattiesburg for the first time in 15 years. We were amazed to see the tremendous growth that has taken place. Fifteen years ago, Leatha's was a hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint located 12-15 miles from town. The food was wonderful but it was hard to get out to get it. Over the years they have moved... More

We chose Hattiesburg for a 1 night getaway because we wanted to eat at Leatha's. We go as often as we can and it's ALWAYS excellent!

We were staying the night in Hattiesburg on our way to New Orleans and wanted to find somewhere local to eat dinner. I used Tripadvisor to look up local restaurants and Leatha's BBQ was #1 so we decided to try it. It did not disappoint! It looks a little like a dive and is hidden from the road, but don't... More

The ribs were the best ever and the cole slaw was I couldn't leave without taking some home for the next day. It is a bit pricey but worth every penny

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
