Incredibly good fried chicken... I have had much better, but In this area, it's hard to find better fried chicken. So, if you are looking for great fried chicken in Plymouth, give Lee's a try. I rate it highly because in Plymouth, this is the best...forego the sides.

There is a reason that there is a line out the door nearly every evening. This is the best carry-out chicken in S.E. Michigan, A staple of Plymouth for over 40 years. Still doing it right.

Lee's is always busy at lunch and dinner time, but their service is really quick so they move people through. The chicken and sides are very tasty!

Service is speedy! I go to Lee's all the time, and it's faster than any drivethru. The chicken is excellent, the sides are just ok. Service is friendly. Wheelchair accessible.

We received an order of Lee's Famous Chicken for a business dinner which we provide during seminars for customers. It was the first time we ordered and won't be the last. The chicken was fabulous, all pieces were decent is size, but the taste was very good. I'd say I'd put it right up there with any chicken I've had.... More

If you ate at a particular Kentucky Chicken establishment you remember. There is a smell a taste and a feel that you can't get now...you can at Lees! Fried chicken, mashed potato, coleslaw and a biscuit for under $7! Take away only but worth the trip.

Though Lee's is chain there are very few locations in Michigan. The chicken is perfectly fried and the coating is delicious. The sides are good. Especially the green beans and mac and cheese. They also have a fridge full of desserts, drinks and extra sides if you so desire. Not what you would call a healthy meal but certainly a... More
