Get the burgers to go

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

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
