Crispy Chicken was a bit spicy, beans and green beans were aaaa ok I guess, the fried pickles were different but good. The biscuits were really good. Small town feel but big time love for... More

Lee's is a great place to have a meal. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is attentive and extremely helpful. The potato wedges are not to be missed. You'll find a wide variety of sauces for dipping if that's your pleasure. Be sure to check out the newspaper for inserts before going to Lee's. You can usually find... More

If in Englewood don't even bother with KFC, this stuff is perfectly seasoned and much tastier. The sides are also great, I always get it with coleslaw and mac & cheese.

Love going here for our chicken and chicken livers and gizzrds! Also tend to love their pot pies too! Great service, and order is always right, and food is always hot, and never cold, unless you count the cold slaw! Great food, mashed taters with gravy always hot and ready to eat! Love their green beans too!

It is okay, just nothing special. Sometimes seems very greasy, other times very good. Still a great place to stop and grab some food for a reunion or guests stopping in...

Find the pieces to be much bigger then KFC and the sides even better. Wife loves their cole slaw and if we need it for a gathering and she does not have time to fix it she has me run there to pick some up. Also they do outstanding cater service.
