I love lees my family goes there at least twice a week! I love the roasted chicken and the red beans and rice! And the breakfast is fresh and good! Better than McDonald's! You can tell they don't nuke it in the microwave like McDonald's does. I'm not bouncing on Mickey d's but they do do that. Keep up the great work guys!

Hi there, I used to be the manager of Lees. In their defense here's a few things. One, the chicken has no changed it is prepared exactly the same way with the same products as it has been for decades, the only difference is new cookers. Two, some of the veggies have changed but that was not an option for Lees as the suppliers stopped carrying the previous products. Yes there are a bunch of kids working there but they are pushed, probably harder than any other fast food restaurant in existence. And as someone previously stated this is a family owned restaurant, the erdmanns are EXCELLENT people and will go out of their way to please all of their customers as long as their informed. Next time you have a problem don't go all gungho with the I'm never going back crap, simply call up there, tell them what problem you had so they can fix it for all the other customers and more than likely they'll take care of you too. Reputation is everything in the restaurant business.

Been getting meals there for 10 years. Disappointing lately to be honest. Chicken peice size has gotten increasingly smaller and buckets are containing a much higher ratio of legs and wings. Food still tastes fine...Just really not representing the value anymore. I really love to support the local businesses, but, they are making it harder.

Keep complaining.when Milan, Trenton and Humboldt have nothing left you'll really be unhappy.There has to be some positive somewhere and people need to look for it.

I've been outta high school for many a year now, my best girl friend worked there while we attended Milan High. If I wanted to hang out with her that's where I had to be. I've ate more than I should have and I know that now, but these people are half right..a fat chicken breast, mashed taters, or tater wedges, cole slaw, AND GREEN BEANS that would make you not just want to but have to go SLAP YOUR MAMA!! What's going on with these green beens? Back in the day if people said it then they'd tell you "THE GREEN BEANS ARE THE HOT FIRE BOMB" Now they're like eatting nothing, cause they're not fittin they just aint fittin..Lord knowsI had alot of my trials and errors but I got it right...I cook'em like I used to get them from Lee's. And my best girl friend only gave me the reciepe for the chicken batter about 5 years ago. I had to BEG quite awhile to get that. My husband brought home Lee's last kids eat and eat. Them boxes were E-M-P-T-Y in no time flat. It's a good thing I caught a bone as it flew by or I wouldn't have had a bite at all...hehehe FORMAL REQUEST: FIX THEM GREEN BEANS PLEASE PLEASE, ASK FORMER EMPLOYEES..THEY AINT RIGHT LIKE THEY family only requests I bring green beans to family dinners...Lee's OlDER Famous Reciepe is how I make them, and they clean it out good, there's not even and juice left in the bottom...WE WANT THE OLD GREEN BEANS, THE GOOD GREEN BEANS, THE LEE'S FAMOUS RECIEPE GREEN BEANS...PLEASE HELP US GET THEM BACK IN OUR FAMILY PACKS!!! I MISS YOU ANGIE, BETTY,& MIRANDA!!! LOTS OF LOVE TO Y'ALL!!

Dude if Lee's wont hire you, go up to Higgs.I read some of her comments and I quote "she really don't care" so
what if she says no,at least she's not gonnna eat ya. If you know you can do better than them kids, you gotta step up and show them kids up. Work is hard to find now days and an employeer should want the best worker for the job!! And if that's what you have to actually say to a potential employer..go for it. They'd be stupid to turn down something like that. They'd get to see both workers do the particular job for a determined amount of time and choose who did the best job for his business, the employee is the face of the company!! GOOD LUCK!

We ordered a 20 piece chicken meal several weeks ago. Made a huge mistake by not checking the box before driving away. Got home and inside the box was nothing but *extremely* burned chicken. It was like the took left-overs they threw back into the fryer to reheat. Everything went into the trash! I'm sure they knew it was like that when they boxed it up. They couldn't be that stupid. Won't be going back.

As a former employee of the erdmann's I can say with confidence that a great deal of this thread is either exaggerated or completely untrue. I have a great deal of respect for the family and how they run their business (esp after having a truly horrible experience working for another local business owner just prior to joining them) and i still eat lee's and Mojo's on the regular. The chicken at lees may be a bit greasy and the sides aren't exactly fine cuisine but is that really what you are expecting in a drive thru? How bout cooking a meal at home for a change rather than gorging out on fast food then complaining about it on the internet?
