Yes, the decor is that of a repurposed fast-food joint, but don't be put off by that. You didn't come here for the ambience. The fried chicken is excellent. My grandmother made better, but not by that much. Retire the Colonel and Popeye and stop here instead.

We stopped to eat with some friends before leaving town. I had a breast meal w/ fries. The chicken was great-juicy, just the right spiciness, and hot. Good area to sit in and talk with friends. A nice place for getting a bite to eat and talk.

Waited 30 minutes for food because of a big catering order. Wish they would have told us before we ordered that it would be that long of a wait. The staff was okay...although not very friendly. Chicken was fresh.

Great southern menu in a fast food restaurant. Fried chicken is a special recipe that is unlock any other.

Looking for something edible and quick, we stopped at Lee's for lunch. It is obviously a repurposed fast food restaurant - or deliberately modeled after one - and while the building is old and plain inside and out, the experience was worth the stop. We had the BBQ sandwich and the Jumbo Dippers along with the coleslaw and potato salad... More

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.
