Their burgers rock - and so do their onion rings and fries. Can't beat them. Very small location - so takeout is a good option (you can order on their app now... when it is working). Their hotdogs are great as well.

My kids love it, the food is fresh and tasty. The fries and the sweet potatos are one of the best I had in a long time.

If you're stopping into a burger joint, what you care about is the burgers. Unfortunately, an awful lot of restaurateurs don't seem to understand this principle, and so you get some huge menu with a zillion options and a lot of nonsense about "our legendary...More

If your in newton stop in to lee's if you want a burger. The bacon cheeseburger is pretty feeling. The fries aren't the greatest but the "special " sauce is worth the trip. Not a lot of room for sitting so optimal to take out.

This is a reasonably priced local burger place. It isn't glamorous, but the food is generally very good and it is usually very fast. One complaint is that I am not a fan of their fries - they are uninteresting and bland in my opinion.
