“Old Kentucky,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The other big chicken chain that began in Kentucky used to produce good chicken back in the 60's. Then sometime about 1980 that chain shortened the cooking time, cut three breasts out of each tiny bird, and churned out chicken with undercooked breading that was still wet and sloppy - gross to be precise. Well at Lee's you can still purchase good chicken with all the flavor you remember of yore. However the prices are unsatisfactorily high, and the side dishes are disappointing, the potato wedges especially. And they wanted 15 cents for a cup of water after spending six dollars for food - that's a very rude policy for management.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Stopped in at Lee's thinking it was a secret down home fried chicken place. It was an ordinary fried chicken place. Not spicey like Popeyes. Portions are very good.
