When in the area, I ask for and they pack their signature Philly Cheese steaks (at least 2) for my trip back to New York. They never fail to throw in extra "special sauce" and it's always service with a smile.

But, this was the wrong time of year to go sit down here and try the burger. When the door opens you freeze and everyone has to eat with their jackets on. They need a heater above the doorway to keep eaters warmer, or, otherwise, pick another season to go here. Shake shack has a better looking and more inviting... More

This place is our go to place for burgers. The service is great and the burgers and fries are fantastic. My kids refuse to go anywhere else and they say this place is superior to five guys, shake shack or any other fast food joint. Tip- Always share the fries- they are way too big for one :)

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
