“Southern BBQ Done right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Not the nicest place but the food is good. True southern BBQ. It's so nummy and you get a lot of food for a small amount of money. It's kind of hard to find

“Not my cup of tea. ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

After all had heard n read about this place, we were so disappointed. Service was minimal but expected but the bad thing was the BBQ sauce was way toooooo sweet so that affected all the meats n beans. Didn't eat much of the generous portions and didn't even want a doggie bag.

“Excellent Eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

So sad to hear of Ms Leatha's passing. The food and service are excellent. Puiled pork, ribs, slaw, potato salad, you name it... it's all delicious and the best around.

“Sad News in Hattiesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Saddened by the recent death of BBQ legend and founder of the restaurant that bears her name. "Miss Leatha" Jackson at age 90. A wonderful country woman that mastered the art of southern barbecue and shepherded a rustic little family business into a well known attraction in Hattiesburg. She will be missed. God will have a special place for this good woman.
