Well, it's about what you think...just fried chicken and donuts. A little odd of a combination, but hey...there must be something to it or else they wouldn't be doing it. They do have a Kale Salad on the menu...I wonder how many people are ordering that.
The place is brand spanking new, first day opened...and we get there at 730pm and they're open till about 10pm or as they said, when their fried chicken is sold out. We order the combo #3, which includes 2 breast, 2 thighs, 2 wings, 2 drumsticks. Of course we ordered some donuts, we're not party poopers. We got 3 glazed, 2 jelly, and as suggested the bacon and praline. I'm not sure what Matt was thinking with the jelly donut, but who am I judge...I'm all about nostalgic experiences. I eat mash potatoes with white gravy and a white roll strictly for the nostalgic reasons.
The fried chicken has to be the best fried chicken I've had since the whole fried chicken movement. It's super tasty, crispy, flavorful! We all agreed the fried chicken was really good. I have to tell you, just thinking about it is making me crave it! And surprisingly the doughnuts were really good too! I liked the glazed doughnut the best. I find it's hard for doughnut shops to get the glaze to dough ratio right. Shipley's does it right and Krispy Kreme does it right, other than that...most fall short, incudling, in my opinion Dunkin Donuts. Anyways, I was pretty impressed. However, the two they high suggsted, apple fritters, which I didn't get to try, sold out, they said were their most popular item. She also suggested the praline bacon, which I thought was a little too sweet and way to much on it. I'm a big fan of mixing bacon with the unexpected, but for me and Matt this one wasn't that great. However, the 14 year old did like it. I took a bite of their jelly doughnuts and did not like it. We also got the potato salad and coleslaw, which I thought were also both good...we were all on the same page, Lee's gets 3 thumbs up! Definitely worth the try!
