This is a really great place to eat especially their lunch buffet. They are constantly cleaning the area and restocking food. They have a great senior citizen discount.

I stopped here for lunch today on the way home from a business trip. I was welcomed immediately upon entering. I ordered the senior buffet, one perk of being old ($5.99). The buffet was well stocked, and was watched closely to keep it well stocked. the chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, and cole slaw, were all fresh, plentiful... More

I have been eating from this place for a long time, but just recently dined in for lunch. I was surprised at how spacious it was inside. The food was good and the selection on the buffet was great.

Chicken is great! We enjoyed the green beans, coleslaw, macaroni salad and cobbler! Senior dinner buffet is 5.99 plus tax. I was not a fan of the steamed cabbage which tasted sweet but I am sure some would enjoy.

The chicken here is pretty good, crispy and juicy. The side are decent, but I've had better. Prices are fair. It has a sit down area or you can just go through the drive thru. It seems to have local, family appeal to it too. You can't go wrong with the chicken, it's definitely worth a try. Check it out.

My group of friends eat at Lee's almost every Monday evening, Senior Night. The food is good the price is right, and the owner is always trying to please the customers. Their chicken is the best in town and they offer plenty of different side dishes.

This restaurant isn't upscale, but if you want to fill up, its the place to go. They have a buffet and they typically have roasted and fried chicken on the bar (along with a tray of livers). The other items (mashed potatoes, white and brown gravy, green beans, cole slaw, baked beans and biscuits) all are 'country style'. For desert... More
