We stopped here for a quick lunch on our way to Tennessee. Very disappointed with the buffet. Very few options. Service was good. Restaurant clean.

The fold is very good, especially the chicken tenders. The price is very reasonable, especially, if you order the special promotions.

Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken catered our group of twenty for a working lunch. The chicken was good and I enjoyed their mashed potatoes. I was not a big fan of the Cole slaw but my teammates really seemed to enjoy it. Overall, the chicken was average compared to any other place that sells friend chicken.

Decided to get carry in chicken after a long day at the rolex. Pulled up the Lee's menu online. The official site made a point that all locations do not carry the same sides, SO I MADE SURE TO PULL UP THE BEREA LOCATION SO THAT THE SIDES WOULD BE ACCURATELY REPRESENTED. I was delighted to see that the berea... More

I don't get how this brand has lasted almost fifty years if the food served here is representative of what I can expect at Lee's. It is absolutely flavorless. Neither my wife or I were able to finish our meals. I got the spicy chicken. How a spicy chicken can be tasteless is beyond me. The mac and cheese as... More

Fried chicken, like KFC but without the spices in the breading. Buffet is also like KFC's, but much smaller. Prices are a bit lower than KFC.

With less than 24 hours notice I ordered food, plates, cups, utensils, etc. for 75 people for fellowship after a funeral. They delivered everything to the designated location on time, and I was so relieved. I didn't try all the food, but I heard no complaints. The peach cobbler with pineapple, which I did eat, was excellent.

We stop and get strips for our son all the time, hard to beat the price with a coupon. The size of the strips are huge and will fill you up. The mashed potatoes are good and the potato wedges are very big and tasty! The managers attitude is not pleasant but others are nice.

Talk about heaven in a box! For some reason I've always had this negative view of Lee's in my head and with no real reason or logic behind it because I had never ate their. Now I eat there all the time. If you haven't ate at one yet you're missing out. Great prices and good food what more could... More
