Had a party at my home the other day catered by Lee's Chicken in Berea. Can't thank them enough; food great, food hot, food on time, more food than promised, pleasant delivery man, very reasonably priced. I'm glad we spent the money here in town as opposed to sending it to Bentonville Ar. Locally owned stores keep the money here in town and keep the local employees working and spending their money in Berea. Thanks again.

The Carter family owns the Lee's franchise in Berea. If I remember right, they got it from Vernon Cummins in the early 80s.

I eat there occasionally and have never had a problem. And frankly, I think they pay more attention to the safe handling of chicken than the
the other franchise in Berea. And that can be verified by MCHD inspections.

Oh, and thanks for a nice positive post on an otherwise daily abused website.

I am very comfortable eating at Lees, Arbys, any Subway, Wendys (daytime only) and, Main Street Cafe.

FWIW, Red Lobster and Outback has gone to hell and why I have no idea. I had one experience at Sonnys and we left before the food arrived. The manager got a bit pissed becaues I complained about my beer being in a dirty glass (waitress cought it before me, mentioned it and walked away) and the slaw was in a dirty bowl.

You're pretty much right on the money, especially on your worst list. Berea needs a REAL Italian restaurant.

Your top 5 should have included Dinner Bell, but again I say, your list seems fair and accurate.
