We went to the downtown Memphis location for lunch. The place is somewhat rundown. The atmosphere is very loud and busy. The takeout line can get extremely long and the table service can get very slow. However, the chicken is worth the wait. Has a very slight heat along with great flavor.

The chicken was excellent and enjoyed the sides. The waitress was friendly. The restaurant is a hole in the wall, but the food is great.

Yes, this IS the BEST fried chicken ever...not greasy at all. And we were lucky to eat on a day they were serving collard greens and cornbread. I almost cried it was so good....(sorry grandma!)

Lee's chicken is better than Gus's. Not sure what all the hype is about. We had chicken and fried green tomatoes, which was my first time trying them. they were not very good here.
