Just plain great tasting chicken

This place is a little hole in the wall but I have to admit, there Chicken is amazingly yummy. Hands down to their receipt. They definitely need to create a chain of themselves

Lee's is a small take out restaurant in Plymouth, MI located on Ann Arbor Rd. The chicken is remarkable, tender, juicy and always hot! Lee's also serves great coleslaw, potato salad and baked beans! They have specials once a week (call for day) They are very busy on Mother's Day, July 4, and on hot summer days. Be prepared to... More

Best fried chicken around, hands down. We usually get chicken parts - legs and breasts, crispy. Numerous sides are available to go with the chicken. Staff is very fast and graciously fills special request orders. Great for picnics, lunch at the pool and watching the big game on TV..

I stopped here the other day for a 3 pc Fried Chicken Dinner. This is just a small little place where you mainly go for take out. There is no inside tables to sit at. You can view the various menu choices by looking at the wall menu above the counter. I usually go for the original style fried chicken... More

I am a foodie and I LOVE LEE'S FAMOUS RECIPE CHICKEN!!! You must get the extra crispy recipe as it has a nice peppery, well seasoned, crispy, but not too hard, kick (but not too spicy...just right!) that is addictive. If you love good food, hurry up and get here before I eat it all! The sides are all excellent,... More

If you remember KFC twenty years ago....you will love this place! They have chicken done three ways: famous, spicy and strips. They have gizzards too. The sides are what you expect. Service is fast so is there is a line don't worry! Prices are equally great!

Lees has a super selection of chicken dinners and side dishes. The portions are abundant and the wait staff friendly. There is always a line especially on $1 off Wednesdays. The wait is well worth it!!

This place is quick, fast, inexpensive and far better that KFC. There is only take out here but there is one table outside if you dare aT this time of year. They have buckets, 2,3,4 piece dinners. Some times the line is out in the parking lot but it goes pretty fast. Mix it up with your favorite pieces there... More

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.
