Been around since 1939. Read good reviews and figured we needed to go. Good food – just like mom used to make. Friendly atmosphere, lots of locals, which is always a good sign. If you are passing through, this is a great stop.

Everyone goes to lunch at Lee's. We stumbled on it because there was an available parking spot just in front although we were looking for another restaurant. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff and good dinner food. 3 of us had the spaghetti bolognese.

Lee’s knows their clientele and has a following. This is a down home restaurant, providing inexpensive, but plenty of good food. Pies are homemade, service is friendly. Decor hasn’t changed in decades. Budget conscious diners, seniors on fixed income and families will enjoy Lees. Burgers...More
