I absolutely love Leatha's BBQ. Its so good that I eat it as a treat to myself for doing something good! The portions are huge, the sweet tea is SWEET and the ladies working there end every sentence with "baby"! This is what southern BBQ is supposed to be. I hated cole slaw and beef ribs prior to coming here.... More

This BBQ is off the chain! It's very tasty and out of this world good! It is worth every penny of your money! The plate sizes are very good. The amtmosphere is awesome with all the old pictures of celebrities coming in for BBQ! It will shock you on who has come to the joint. Eat and enjoy.

Ok to keep it real here my family is all about bbq but this sauce is just a bit too sweet for us. Ribs are decent but there is much better out there.

Leatha's has been with us for years, many in Foxworth, (some 30 miles west of Hattiesburg), now local on US98 west. The walls were/are covered with business cards from around the country. Leatha's is an experience; hand towels as napkins, metal folding chairs, board floors AND ... the best BBQ around, servers who care and ... did I mention the... More

This was our second stop at Leatha's. The BBQ is completely fantastic. The ribs and chicken fall off the bone. The pulled pork was juicy and tender. They didn't have sausage or brisket on the menu, which was disappointing because I know it would have been amazing. They also have thick fried potatoes, a homemade honey mustard slaw, delicious potato... More

We visited Hattiesburg and Leatha's was recommended to us by a friend who knows his BBQ. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious. Portions were huge. Service was good and very friendly. My husband and I both had the pulled pork plate (pictured).

The place may not be fancy but the food is great. Everything I have had so far tasted like homemade. Would recommend this restaurant.

We found Leatha's on Trip Advisor a couple of years ago. Now it's a must when we drive through Hattiesburg. The BBQ is delicious, the service is awesome and it's just an awesome ambiance (think southern BBQ dive). I highly recommend visiting this place!! You won't regret it!
