When we don't have time to cook we pick up chicken here. Service is always good and the chicken is better than KFC in my opinion. Good place to eat.

Lees famous recipe has a variety of different foods from chicken to steak, to shrimp. Personally I like their chicken strips the best, there a good size, taste amazing and aren't overly expensive.

If your traveling though Harrodsburg, our local Lees Famous Recipe would be a great choice for lunch. They recently remodeled it so it's double the size it used to be. Parking is tight, but there's plenty behind the restaurant. The lunch buffet with drink is around 7 dollars. It has more on it than any one person could ever eat.... More

It was my first time at a Lee's, and certainly won't be my last. Great price for a buffet, small but good variety. Grilled chicken and the peach cobbler were great, not a big fan of the gravy though. The cute girls that work there are a nice touch too :)

None of the tables were clean, the bathroom was so gross I just turned around and left, and there was food all over the floor. Ew.
