Great fried chicken but they also serve fried catfish! Then you add some fried okra and it's a special treat for me. Call ahead if you want to pick up at drive thru window.

After all the rave about Leader's chicken, we finally tried it...IT WAS DELICIOUS! However, the female behind the counter was blowing her nose, didn't wash her hands, and handling foods. We politely asked the other lady if she'd kindly handle our food....it makes me wonder...More

Love the chicken finger basket at Leader's. This is a great small town restaurant. They serve several things (chicken, fried fish, chicken fingers, etc...), but I always get the chicken finger basket. Their "secret" dipping sauce is wonderful.

The best and juiciest chicken! Taste like Momma use to make when we were kids. Loved it. We also got the 10 pc catfish, omg it was the best. I have not found such good catfish here in Florida! You should try this place.

The chicken was cold and the service was rude. We stopped by on our way home to pick up dinner on a Saturday afternoon. I'm pretty sure they did not want our business. We ordered to go off of the menu and were told we...More
