I visit this place regularly. I've yet to get something to eat that I didn't enjoy. Best described as a blend of soul food and Asian cuisine. The food is delicious. Portions are huge and prices are reasonable. Great food, great people, if you haven't been, you're missing out.

I have NEVER had a bad experience at Lees. I come here frequently if I am in the area for lunch or an early dinner. The workers started to know me by name after a few visits and are always friendly; super busy, mind you, but always friendly.Ordering take-out is probably your best option because this place doesn't have a...

Again, this lunch time deli should not be confused with the Greater New Orleans' Lee's Hamburgers locations (as the T/A title implies), Instead, this is a cafeteria style, very local eatery best suited for take-out. You can also get poboy sandwiches, some boiled seafood and some oriental dishes, etc. Their stuffed bell peppers are my favorite, and for most will... More

I get the pork chops and lo mein and they're always the exact same: AMAZING. The parking can be tricky during peak lunch and dinner times but it's worth the wait.

Back before McDonalds kids had to go somewhere for their burgers and Lee's was the place. Like the other NO chains, Frostop and Bud's Broiler they filled a need quite successfully. Got the Steakhouse, a burger with cheese and bacon. The cheese was thin strands of American cheese, cut into angel haIr pasta in thickness, an 1 1/4" long. Good... More

I can’t believe it took me a year to try this place. I would drive by, look at it, but had no desire to give it a try (the exterior is not appealing). That all changed when I visited my mother and tried a piece of her shrimp on bun from Lee’s. Wow! OMG! The taste was phenomenal! After inquiring... More

I finally got my husband to go to Lee's. Well now he is always saying let's go. The burgers are big and you do get it your way. I have to eat mine in two settings. The fries are very good too.

This place is great for anything from burgers, hot dogs, Po Boys, to fried shrimp and many other local varieties. They make their own hamburger and onion rings are to die for which are also homemade.

Ordered a grilled and fried shrimp poboy. Ate half and have the other half for later. So delicious--can't wait for later. The bread was perfect and the shrimp were so flavorful. Very near the airport so convenient to pick something up for the flight home. Small place but seems to be very popular with the locals. If you want a... More
