I stopped in to check out the chicken. As others have mentioned, it's probably best to call ahead because the chicken is cooked at the time of order. So it's about a 15-minute wait if you walk in and order. The chicken breast was juicy...inside but I didn't think the skin was that flavorful. The potato salad was excellent. It was some of the best potato salad I've had. Not vinegary like supermarket potato salad. Overall I thought the place was a little pricey. $10 for a chicken breast and potato salad. I probably would not go back for chicken. They do offer dinner specials after 5:00 p.m. I would consider going back to try one of those in the future.More

Go for the fried chicken and you wont be sorry. It takes a while for them to make it (12 minutes) as it is always cooked to order. Its worth the wait. The homemade side salads and desserts are good as well.

The. Best. Fried. Chicken. EVER. Called in about 330p for 5pm pickup. It was hot, fresh and ready. Just as tasty the next day, warm up. Wow.

We love Letties! I recommend ordering ahead because this place is a favorite with the locals. The fried chicken is so fresh and crispy without being greasy. We love the Mac N cheese and cole slaw. We also indulge in a slice of the key...lime pie or other desserts with our order. We get takeout from here twice a month. Highly recommend!More

The roasted chicken and broccoli salad is the best. You don’t want to miss the chicken salad either. We used to leave 2 miles away. Now we live 40 miles away and still keep coming back.

Letties has the best fried chicken in Delaware! We usually order take out. Just call ahead 20 to 30 minutes for Letties to get it ready. Great sides to choose from like assorted salads, twice baked potatoes, mac and cheese, and yummy homemade desserts. There’s...also a daily dinner special, sandwiches, and soup. Everything is delicious!More

Ordered two Thanksgiving dinners at $26 each. Turkey was perfect as well as green beans, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and rolls. The mashed potatoes were bland and tasted like they may have been instant. Each dinner came with a container of gravy. One container was...a rich brown. The other was a clear to beige in color which we tossed. We are weekly customers and it was the first disappointing meal we ever purchased from Letties!More

Yesterday I enjoyed The Grant Flatbread that was cooked perfectly. The flatbread was crisp and didn’t flop when I picked it up. I took home some Pasta Salad that was tasty too.

Nice take out place. Good fried chicken, but, must order in advance, takes 45 min. to cook Have small space for seating, could be quaint, if they invested more time in this part.

I used to fry my own chicken, not anymore. Letties does it better. All their take out food is great. Salads, meat loaf, mac and cheese. Must call ahead for the chicken.

Very good and fresh “broasted” (i.e. fried, in a deep vat fryer) chicken and salads. Sandwiches could use better rolls/bread, and the sides are a little skimpy. We ate outside on the covered porch, which even on a hot day was better than inside at...the few tables they have; the kitchen is open to the main area, so the counter/dining area was hot but, worse than that, had a bit of an odd odor. Seems to do more take-out/catering than dining in, which may be why they don’t seem concerned about what the inside looks/feels/smells like.More

My family has gotten Lettie’s catering more than once and every time it brings a smile to everyone’s face. I’ve never been disappointed and their mouthwatering fried chicken is definitely one of my favorite. Also I can never get enough of their delicious mac and...cheese.More

You know you’ve found a yummy place for good food when it’s packed with single men. The fried chicken is the best I’ve ever tasted and one can add classic scrumptious sides like potato salad or coleslaw. The desserts looked divine snd probably worth every...calorie. There are a few tables for sitting up eat but most people seem to take away their food. Parking is a little cramped and crazy but there is Swift park close by so it might be easier to park there.More

Love the Broasted chicken at this place. If you have not tried it yet, you must. It’s fried chicken but not the typical one but with a thin and crisp layer and flavorful. We usually go there and eat at the park bench near by...so kids can run around, do swings and slide while we enjoy the meal. Friendly owners.More

Small little place that looks and feels like you're going to grandma's house. Everything is homemade. We didn't know that there are only a few tables and wanted to sit down to eat, but they were all full. Will order ahead and take out next...time, or go in the summer and eat on the porch. This is a very small place, so if you go with small children or a large party and expect to sit down, you'll probably end up taking it to go instead. It's delicious and I'd definitely go back.More
