Best BBQ in Mississippi. I travel for work and have stopped all over the south for BBQ, and Leatha's is so much better than anyone else. Highly recommended their pulled pork sandwich, baked beans and pecan pie.

Pretty sure not. It's illegal to sell a game animal at a restaurant. But you can bet it would be good.
