I love this place for a burger or sub. They are very accommodating and quick. There are a few tables and a diner type counter that faces the window. For a small place it's very well laid out. My kids grew up with flippin burgers...More

This establishment is on a side street off Langley in Newton Centre. The staff are fabulous and friendly. Service is great. Food was served faster than expected. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. The chicken was chewy, not very tender, but was seasoned well. My...More

If your in newton stop in to lee's if you want a burger. The bacon cheeseburger is pretty feeling. The fries aren't the greatest but the "special " sauce is worth the trip. Not a lot of room for sitting so optimal to take out.

This is a reasonably priced local burger place. It isn't glamorous, but the food is generally very good and it is usually very fast. One complaint is that I am not a fan of their fries - they are uninteresting and bland in my opinion.

The place is always full at lunch and dinner. You can see people parked outside that are picking up their food to enjoy it at home. It is a small place but their food is above average. The burgers are cooked to the temperature you...More

We recently discovered Lee's, and promptly returned two more times within 10 days. This is a friendly, well run, delicious burger spot (mostly for take out, as seating is limited) right in Newton Center. Lee's is perfect for a quick order to go while on...More
