Consistently good - the oven roast chicken is a favorite along with the cole slaw. Best cole slaw in town!

We have been going here for years and always like it better than KFC. The folks that work here are always welcoming and nice. I love their herb roasted and fried chicken. So affordable, and yummy. Go enjoy.

Lee's has great fried chicken. It is a fast food restaurant so the window staff can be challenging at times ... but the food is always consistently good.

Very good place for juicy chicken! Their weekday lunches are a great price and the $5.49 Wednesday special with 3 pieces and 2 sides are a wonderful deal!

Chicken was good. Nice batter. Didn't really care for mashed potatoes and gravy. Service was quick and professional. Just nothing special.
