Louisiana is known for having good appetites, great food, and a culture of hospitality that’s all about sharing the best you have to offer! With that in mind, here are some of the best restaurants here in Leesville LA! If you’re ever passing through, be sure to check them out!


This is where Leesville goes for lunch! You wouldn’t think much of the Ranch House by the décor – they’re not fussy about dressing the place up. Everything here is simple, and that reflects their approach to food. The Ranch House serves classic meals that no one is ever going to photograph and post on Instagram – because they’ll be too busy eating! Known for the soups and sandwiches, they also have daily specials with an extra bit of love. Locals love their potato soup, loaded baked potatoes, and (when they have it) a classic Louisiana gumbo! Good food, good people, good place.


A trip to Louisiana isn’t complete without a feed of crawdads! And when you’re in Leesville, that means pulling up to J&T Crawfish. This isn’t so much a “restaurant” as a “shack,” but who cares – you can get a pound of DELICIOUS crawfish for only $2 a pound. They’re great too, cooked up with J&T’s own spice blend. This is about as authentic as Louisiana eating gets!


Slappy’s & Pappy’s has been a Leesville tradition for decades now. Serving classics from the era of the drive-through, you can get the best burger in the state here, not to mention poboys, milkshakes, sandwiches and their sweet speciality, the deep-fried Oreo! This is NOT food for watching your figure – this is food for getting out and having a great time.

Whether you’re visiting West Louisiana or just passing through, you’ll get a great night’s sleep at the SureStay Hotel Leesville by Best Western. Our complimentary outdoor pool is a great way to beat the heat! Looking for the best places to eat? Ask our friendly staff for some recommendations and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality!
