The closest I’ll ever come to having my Grandmother’s fried chicken again. For this, Lettie’s has my heart and my loyalty.

We were searching for restaurants in the area we are looking for a house. We found Lettie’s and decided to try it. All the chicken and fixings are made to order and brought to your table piping hot yet with no grease. We’ll be returning.

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.
