This place was packed and now I know why. Everything was great. Good variety, fast..friendly service, great food, and fair prices. If we're back in the area, we'll be stopping in again.

We visited this restaurant on the way home from Houston. Nice little 50's themed restaurant. The food and service were great! I had the grilled chicken club on toast and my husband had the fish and shrimp. Not greasy at all and was some of the best we have ever had! Glad we found this place. We will be back!

After a fire Lee's is back and better than ever. Their plate lunches are super and burgers are like the old days. Lee's has enough variety of great food to satisfy anyone in this 50's style informal diner

Went for Lunch/Dinner after church on Sunday and was a waiting list as usual, but worth the wait. Good dinner food and local flavors, Catfish, Shrimp,or Red Beans and Rice. The portions are plentiful and atmosphere reminds you of the Fifties. Root Beer Floats and shakes like the olde time drive ups. The decor is straight from Good Times, expect... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. The food is good and if you like the 1950s atmosphere you'll love this place.

Lee's on West Thomas is back after their fire. I sure am glad they are back in operation since they are one of our favorite diners. Prices seem to have increased since re-opening but they are still quite reasonable.

I drove by this place and was immediately interested in it due to the look and the fact it's not a chain. The food was great and the decor was fun to look at and showed a real sense of history. Would definitely stop by again as the shakes are spot on
