Once a week I go to Lee's because the hamburger is so good. The onion rings are excellent as are the french fries. My friend had the meatball sub and enjoyed it as much as the hamburger. The prices are wonderfully reasonable. The staff as mentioned in other reviews really wants to please. The place is tiny and the atmosphere... More

What can you say, the burgers are very good!! I got the bacon cheeseburger and it was juicy and delicious. There are only two tables and a handful of chairs at a counter so if you want to eat in, be prepared to wait for a chair.

The burgers are yummy and the special sauce is especially good with the fries. The staff behind the counter are very nice, friendly and helpful.

"Consistency defines success" I tried Lee's burger when they just opened in Newton Center 2010. Excellent!. Mr Lee and family were handling the business themselves. I have tried them a couple of times during the years. Mr Lee is not running it, looks like extended family is managing. Same original griller. I tried to get a burger last night and... More

I went to Lee's Burger Place for the first time after visiting nearby Shake Shack and finding it too crowded there. I am really glad I came to Lee's because the burgers here, while different, are also very tasty. They seem to have a pretty wide selection - burgers, dogs, veggie burgers, pastrami sandwiches, etc. I've only ever had the... More

Just a really good, basic burger! The staff are always pleasant and fast. Always reliable. My kids and their friends go there way too much :-)

I am almost afraid to review this tiny gem for fear we won't get a seat at one of the 4-5 tables the next time we go. This has become our go-to place for burgers. They are thick, perfectly cooked to order and the special sauce (optional) is yummy. The staff is super friendly and we just love supporting a... More

We eat here once a week. Wonderful burgers and fries. And that "special sauce" is so good. Consistently good and very inexpensive. Only 2 -3 tables, it's really only a take out place... Yum! Highly recommend.

Burgers are not something I like to go out since I can make easily one at home. Lee's is worth the trip not only for their tasty burgers (nice sauce) but their sides and subs are fabulous. Try the sweet potato fries or the onion rings. The chicken sandwich and the veggie burgers are a good option too. Wonderful, friendly... More

I had a bacon cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. One of the best burgers of my life. Great and juicy 6 oz beef patty, cooked tenderly, and the lettuce, onions, and pickles were a great addition. The sweet potato fries were delicious and plentiful. Definitely going back later.
