Good Burgers

The place is always full at lunch and dinner. You can see people parked outside that are picking up their food to enjoy it at home. It is a small place but their food is above average. The burgers are cooked to the temperature you ask for. And they are generous with toppings and sauces. Their... read more

We recently discovered Lee's, and promptly returned two more times within 10 days. This is a friendly, well run, delicious burger spot (mostly for take out, as seating is limited) right in Newton Center. Lee's is perfect for a quick order to go while on your way home. We have only tried the cheeseburgers and fries, which were both outstanding.

Lee's Burger Place is awesome. The burgers are cooked exactly how you asked them to be. The French Fries and the "special" sauce are to die for. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Lee's is the place to go when you want the best hambuger.

My meat-eating friends love this place, so I figured I should give it a try. Given that good veggie burgers are hard to find, my expectations were modest I wasn't unhappy at all, but I don't imagine that I will go out of my way. But the service was upbeat and the vibe was fun.

If you don't want to use a lot of napkins, this is not your place (says my 3rd grader). Great burgers and good cheesesteaks along with a great selection of beverages.

Don't plan on eating here. The burgers need to be taken home and eaten in front of the television while watching a movie. Excellent secret sauce. Order the fries as well. Love this place.

Great Burgers and sides. Very small take out place. Negative is only two tables and if they are taken you have to take home, eat in your car or outside. Okay when weather is good but tough when weather is bad. Everything made to order and has the made to order taste. Great for a fast bite if you are... More
