I'm looking for the contact info for a restaurant that I believe is called "The Shack." I saw something on TV about it; here is what I remember. It was started by a couple of graduates from Ole Miss, I think it's in Mississippi, it's out in the middle of nowhere (on a lake???). Any ideas? I want to send my BBQ lovin' husband there for his birthday.

Welcome to the board albrummett! :D

This is probably a long shot.....

Except from: http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/19/19386/1.html

"But the best part was the shack on the outskirts of Hattiesburg, Mississippi that by all accounts had the best barbecue in town."


Hope this helps find the place.

The name helped a bit. :D

How 'bout this then:

Leatha's Bar-B-Que Inn
6374 U S Highway 98, Hattiesburg, MS 39402
(601) 271-6003

And it's near a couple of lakes:

For some reason, I was under the impression that it was called "The Shack." I saw an interview with 2 of the owners (not far out of college) and they were talking about how the place was literally a shack that they've expanded and that they were up and running within a few days of Katrina. I really appreciate your effort to help!
