"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.

I love the burgers here. Service is always quick and pleasant. The only failing of this place is that there is very limited seating. And during rush hours it can get packed inside.

Lee’s Burger This is a very casual 14 seat eating establishment. They offer the basics; burgers, chicken wings, hot and cold sandwiches. I went with the bacon, lettuce, onion, and tomato burger ($8.50) and added another burger patty for $2.25. Their sign mentions that the burger is a 6 oz. sirloin patty which usually is code for an 85% meat... More

Spotlessly clean, friendly smiles and burgers that satisfy a craving for a burger. Special sauce-honey mustard, mayo and cayenne? - is great on fries. Have had the regular and sweet potato fries. The latter are nearly a meal themselves. Good basic salad. Generous portion sizes. Enormous selection of canned and bottled beverages. I once called from the airport as they... More
