I just love their chicken. They are usually very busy, so some of the tables may need cleaning. I just don't get over that way very often.

For your southern fried chicken this is one of the better place to get very tasty and moist fish and chicken. Basic order are buckets or dinner with sides. All very tasty. The folks at the counter can be a little testy at times but that is part of the charm.

Love the chicken finger basket at Leader's. This is a great small town restaurant. They serve several things (chicken, fried fish, chicken fingers, etc...), but I always get the chicken finger basket. Their "secret" dipping sauce is wonderful.

The best and juiciest chicken! Taste like Momma use to make when we were kids. Loved it. We also got the 10 pc catfish, omg it was the best. I have not found such good catfish here in Florida! You should try this place.

We actually at at the one in St Amant. 44014 Highway 431, Saint Amant, LA 70774. The chicken is moist yet not greasy. Seasoned yet not overly. We had to wait 10 minutes, not a long time, and the bird was hot and fresh. The staff is polite and accomodating. I will definitely visit again. They also have a drive... More

The chicken was cold and the service was rude. We stopped by on our way home to pick up dinner on a Saturday afternoon. I'm pretty sure they did not want our business. We ordered to go off of the menu and were told we could only have what was already cooked. This is a fast food restaruant, but if... More

We've visited Leaders many times over the years. The food is excellent, reasonable and served hot and timely. I only gave 3 stars for atmosphere only because it is more a lunch stop and go eatery. Not a bad thing. The fish and fries are better than any I've eaten in New Orleans and they keep the place very clean.... More
