Delicious fried chicken with a variety of side dishes to choose from. Lunch menu items are delicious. We have picked up our meal or ate at Lettie’s and always enjoyed our meal.

A house on the old Lancaster pike is the home of Lettie’s Kitchen. Basically. Lettie’s is a take-out shop which has tables both in and out. Fried chicken and other home-made specials are featured.

We absolutely love Lettie's Broasted Chicken. It's crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Words truly can not describe it, you just have to try it!

I live close to Lettie's and I have the luxury of being able to eat there. It is hands down, the best fried chicken around. Other meals are equally delicious. It's old fashioned comfort food like your mom made. They make fantastic soups as well!
