If you didn't know that some of the best chicken in town was inside you'd drive by. It's very good... Along with mash potatoes, cole slaw and muffin. Wednesday night is dollar off night... The best deal of the week.

Counter service only. Fast service, and great chicken, better than KFC, sides aren't bad. I read that Lee's broke off from KFC when KFC was starting up.

I really can't say enough about Lee's Chicken in Plymouth,.. My family and I have been going there for years. The staff is really exactly what you want in a take out restaurant, Friendly, FAST, and Accurate. They get you in and out as fast as the people in the kitchen can box up your order. Even with a line... More

Our office usually gets Lees carry out once a week. The chicken is awesome but what is even more incredible is the sides. From green beans, to baked beans, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy. Just writing the review makes me want to go back. The staff is friendly and nice and have even offered to help carry the food to... More

Great tasting chicken! Small location, outside seating only. Always busy! I recommend the Gizzards! If you have never had them, you need to try them at Lee's Famous Recipe.

Chicken is always moist and crisp. Much easier than frying at home. Great place for take out for a picnic.

Lee's Famous Chicken is the Real Deal! It might come in a box like KFC but there is no comparison. I recommend going on Wednesday for the dollar off a three piece meal and you have to try the strips because they are the juiciest and best tasting you will find.

Great Value; fast service; good meal with substantial quantity. Their chicken is good and their cole slaw is always the best.

Okay, KFC's bigger, but not better. That's all I will say about them, Lee's Famous Recipe will not disappoint you. We've been going here for many years. Tasty and not greasy. The 'Original' is all we've ever had, so I can't comment on their 'Extra Crispy' version. Even their all-meat Chicken Strips are a favorite - without the bones. Seniors... More
