I was in town for business and had to stop at Leatha's. This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. I ordered the Half and Half with Beef and Pork Ribs. For my sides I had the beans, but was torn between the slaw or potato salad. I asked the waitress which was better and she said she'll... More

If TA would allow, I would give this a 4 1/2........would have been a 5 but the service was a little slow......the help likes to talk to the other help. However, it was not so bad as to ruin our stop there as we traveled to New Orleans. This is very good BBQ and they serve large portions of everything.....this... More

After having a terrible experience at Letha's several years ago while in Hattiesburg I decided to give it another chance. We had finished work for the day at about 2 o'clock in the afternoon so decided to have lunch there. We sat at a table and it was forever before the server came around and took our drink order. It...

The food is amazing!! The slaw and beans were the perfect side dishes. The pork ribs had so much flavor; best I ever had! I also ordered the chicken which was falling off the bone and cooked perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area or visiting! Service was also amazing - makes you feel at home!

Don't see how this place has received any good ratings. Went there twice for lunch and left both times without eating and don't plan to go back. First time they were out of potato salad. Second time they were out of beans and table they gave me had not been wiped clean. What BBQ restaurant runs out of basics like... More

This local favorite country restaurant is known for great BBQ ribs and all the fixins. Ms. Leatha's daughters are fun and amazing to watch as they take the orders without a note pad. Their ability to remember the menu and the individuals who ordered it is astonishing. Treat yourself to one of Mississippi's oldest family country restaurant in Hattiesburg. You'll... More
