My wife and I eat here just about every week and we are never disappointed. We come for the AYCE catfish. Unlike many catfish places, the fish here are lightly battered and the meat is white and tasty. Not muddy tasting like other places. The servers are friendly and the price is surprisingly low for this quality of catfish. The... More

On our last visit we learned that the name has changed from Iron Horse to Leathers. We have found their food and service to be a great value from a smothered hot dog lunch to a catfish dinner. The wait staff is always friendly and the atmosphere casual. We really enjoy their catfish and wish them the best in building... More

First of all, let me say that I do not understand why any restaurant would allow the staff to actually sweep the carpets, and I do mean with a broom folks, while you are eating! This is utterly disgusting, and not sanitary! I shall go on, the tables are not very clean, nor are the menu's. Call me old fashioned,... More

I believe in second chances. There are many reviews on Yelp, UrbanSpoon, and the Web that speak of the many incarnations of this spot. Being a BBQ person I had to give them a try. Was I SHOCKED!! The quality of both food and service was outstanding. I ordered a full slab of ribs, the Cross-Ties with Brisket (french fries... More

The basket of ribs was very good. Also the slaw. Very inexpensive. The place needs a revamp, however I understand it's a small town place.

As a local, I enjoy this restaurant because they have good food and the prices are reasonable. It is not extremely difficult to find from the Villa Rica hotels, but it's about 7-8 minutes from the hotels on I-20 at exit 24.

Went to this BBQ place on a Saturday night in April 2011 for the first time. Service was fast and attentive, with the owner walking around asking how things are and talking with the customers. I got the 1/2 rack of ribs, and my wife got the BBQ pork plate. Both of us got Brunswick Stew. I found the ribs... More

HORRIBLE! from the moment we walked in. If the employees paid as much attention to my party as they did themselves this place would have a better rating. Stew was cold too, tenders...over priced all together. Never again!
