I stopped here when travelling and it was great. I had never had Lee's before so this was a first visit. The buffet was hot and fresh. Chicken wasn't greasy.

Entered and saw a Buffet so l walked over and saw a very Small Somple Buffet. I went to Cashier "Wendy" to purchase a Plate but She was involved in a Conversation with a Man.

After reading all the glowing reviews I decided to make the short drive across town to try some of this fabulous chicken in particular the Gizzards and Catfish. Much to my disappointment I find it is simply a chain of wantabe’s. They asked if I wanted some gizzards with the buffet, and as that was why I drove to Lee’s... More

Used to be really good. Chicken tasted old and was dried out on last 2 visits. And what's up with the biscuits? They taste old and are dry! Best part of drive through was eating the hot moist biscuit on the way home! One bite now and I'm done!

Went with my daughter for a quick lunch. Planning to order a chicken dinner but buffet looked good so we did that. The food was excellent. Best item on the buffet was not the chicken, although that was good. The catfish and hushpuppies were excellent. I went back for more. Best fast food around!

We were going to stop at KFC for a quick dinner, but my cousin suggested Lee’s was a lot better and that’s where we stopped. My brother-in-law had livers & gizzards and his wife had the 2-piece fried chicken meal. My wife had the same as her sister and I had fried catfish. My brother-in-law got their meals fast but...

This place has the best fast food chicken in the area. A nice variety of side dishes are for your pleasure, even a little dessert to top off your meal. A buffet is served everyday, also.
