Recommended by co-workers I was visiting as the place to go. Had the 2 meat plate with pulled pork and beef ribs. Both were great. Coleslaw and baked beans both good, and it comes with a side of potato wedges. Coukd not finish it all, but did take the rest back to hotel. I'll force it down later tonight! Worth... More

You just have to try the BBQ. It is falling of the bone tender and tastes like it should. Very good potato salad and cole slaw. Nice price for lunch and the small portion was more that enough for us.

When I pregnant I craved Leatha BBQ constantly. Their pulled pork melts in your mouth. When you walk in you feel like family.

The place is earthy and genuine. The atmosphere is that of a BBQ joint, old school. The service is relaxed, but friendly and thorough. (If you are in a big hurry, go elsewhere but come back when you have the time, it is so very worth it. I had a combination plate with Pork and Pork Ribs. Both were great,... More

If you want white tablecloths, candles, and waiters with a wine list, this is not a place for you. But if you want to find a great barbecue joint recommended and frequented by locals, this is the place to find. And I do mean find, as it is situated back off the road and we did not initially see the... More

The food was OK could've been better. It didn't have enough seasonings. The employees were very nice and friendly.

I've been told this was the best BBQ ever, but the day I went, the food was trash, I've never seen so much fat in pulled pork and the service was even worse, it was like the person taking my order was doing me a favor. I wished she would have just told my wife and I to go somewhere... More

If you want fancy, you're in the wrong place. However, if you are looking for great BBQ (I had the pork and chicken), great sides such as potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, and fried potatoes at a good price, head right over. Oh, the service is excellent too!

I was skeptical when my family brought me back a plate of the BBQ ribs. This was a first time visit for them. They raved about how good the food and service was (dinner time). I'm not a fan of BBQ sauce and the son tells me it not heavy at all. He was right. Slightly sweetened on the juiciest... More
