I've never dined inside, but have been through the drive-thru several times over the years. Very friendly staff. Great food. Fast service.

Best chicken in town. Very nice people working there. Great buffet if you go for that. Their pot pies in season are delicious.

They have all you can eat buffets which is right for me! The chicken is really good and not too greasy. Their sides have flavor which can't be said for the chicken restaurant that is more famous in the state. The price is very reasonable too!!!!

Lees famous recipe has a variety of different foods from chicken to steak, to shrimp. Personally I like their chicken strips the best, there a good size, taste amazing and aren't overly expensive. When compared to KFC, KFC doesn't even come close, at least the one in the area so if you're looking for some home cooking without actually doing... More

When we don't have time to cook we pick up chicken here. Service is always good and the chicken is better than KFC in my opinion. Good place to eat.

Parking is tight, but there's plenty behind the restaurant. The lunch buffet with drink is around 7 dollars. It has more on it than any one person could ever eat.... More

My mother and I brought a few sides and enjoyed the delicous chicken. For me, the pieces were a little small, but I was the only one to notice. While at the store, I noticed the... More

It was my first time at a Lee's, and certainly won't be my last. Great price for a buffet, small but good variety. Grilled chicken and the peach cobbler were great, not a big fan of the gravy though. The cute girls that work there are a nice touch too :)
