“Delicious!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We stopped at Leatha's on our way to New Orleans to see Bama play in the Sugar Bowl (Rollllllll Tide!) My husband and I shared the 1/2 chicken plate with baked beans and the special recipe slaw, which was a little sweet, a little mustardy, but not as spicy as the jailhouse or pool room slaw we are accustomed to at home. The portions were huge, the tea was sweet, and the chicken was falling off the bone delicious! If you are looking for a fancy place, Leatha's isn't it. But, if you are looking for some down home, slow cooked deliciousness, it's a must stop!

“Family Cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Here is a family-run BBQ with excellent fare while truly casual service. The pulled pork and their baked beans were outstanding. A little out of the way, but worth the drive. Gotta go there!

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

I have heard great things over the years about Leatha's and finally made it down to Hattiesburg to give it a shot. I was not disappointed.

The pulled pork was great as were the baked beans and cole slaw. The portion size did was adequate and I had no room for dessert. The service was good as well.

“Worth a special trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I have eaten at their booth at the Washington Parish Fair for years; however, this was the first time I have ever been to the restaurant. Food was excellent, sides were cooked to perfection and I ended the meal with a slice of homemade pecan pie - all of this with reasonable prices and good service.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The food was good but I've had better right here in town. The prices are okay. The service was awful. We were there around lunch time and it wasn't that busy.
