Lee's is the real deal. I totally enjoyed my dinner. the sides wer especially good. It was pretty busy...but the line moved fast. If you're up for Fried Chicken...don't miss Lee's.

My family & I eat here most Wednesdays due to their $3.99 special. Although food the great, staff is great too! We also eat here on other days besides Wednesdays. They also have Kids Night on Tuesdays which is a great deal

Have eaten at both locations here in town a couple of times each. MUCH prefer the Paris Road location. Paris Road food tastes fresher with less grease (chicken and potato wedges). West Ash wedges were greasy and under cooked. Will satisfy my 'Lees craving' at...More

I could eat at Lee's every day of the year, but I would soon be grossly over-weight. The one or two piece meal (with two sides) of Famous recipe is to die for. It can be ordered without a drink. I also order a pint...More

My husband loves gizzards, states he is a judge of the best ones, and Lee's is at the top of the list for him. Their biscuits are fresh and moist, YUM!

It had been a long time since we were in an area that had Lee's. We used to live in Ohio, where the chain started and it was a staple there. Chicken was done properly, slaw was fresh and crispy. Nice stop for us.

Baked/roasted chicken breast is quite good. They serve it on rice. I had their red beans & rice as my side - tasty too. Comes with a biscuit; however, I didn't have it. $3.99 lunch special.

My mother and I were looking for a place for a good lunch at a good price. There were many options and prices weren't bad at all. Our food was ready quickly and was very good. We had BBQ chicken sandwiches and spicy chicken strips....More

My husband really liked his chicken legs. My strips were extremely salty and the coating was kind of hard. The coleslaw, however, was absolutely fantastic - fresh with just the right amount of crunch. I'd give it another go sometime perhaps.
