Walked in about 6:45pm on Saturday night ordered an 8 piece boneless meal. It is now 7:20pm and I'm still waiting. Not extremely busy tonight. This place tends to be hit and miss and tonight it's a complete miss. I will chime back in with a food quality review if I ever get it!

They have good fried chicken but the real difference is they have great grilled chicken. And these are not your new age organic veggies but good ole southern seasoned green beans, greens, and potatoes. And the staff is also so very nice. Love it.

The chicken has changed somewhat in the past couple of months. The chicken I just got was not very big not did it have very good taste. I will wait for a while before I would go back there.

I remember Lee's when I was younger and was sad to see when they had closed but then they reopened and it was on. My favorite are the chicken pot pies, potato wedges,and green beans.

We just stopped by for lunch at this place today. In and around Charlotte, we have been to at least 10 fried chicken places. Lee's Famous did not stack up well at all.... Atmosphere 7/10- From the outside, u would think its a non-fast food atmosphere, however, once u enter, it's clearly a fast food place. Food 3/10- Ordered the... More

I like Lee's although it has lost a lot of business since Popeyes came into town. The chicken and potato wedges are very yummy, along with the sweat tea. The Rock Hill Lee's also collects money for charity in Central America, which I like supporting a restaurant with a cause.

I will make this short and sweet. The service is always great here. The food is typically really good. I had a bad experience with substandard food at this location on one occasion. I complained to the company via e-mail and never received a response back. In my opinion, it is unacceptable for a company not to respond to a... More

Based on the reviews here, we thought we were going to a local place, but it turned out to be a regional chain. This was a decent alternative to the usual fast food chicken places. The chicken strips were the better value. Nothing really made the place stand out from the many other chicken places in the south, though.
