Current address is 3227 Point Mallard Pkwy SE, Decatur, Alabama. From I-65, take the Priceville exit and go west toward Decatur. Minnie Lee's is on the left at the first traffic light.

Couldn't tell from the outside but a pleasant find on our travels. Served "cafeteria style" but good home cookin. Lots of vegetable choices. Good fried chicken. Husband had pork chop and enjoyed it too.

When I do not feel like cooking, this is the next best place to go and get a home cooked meal. I have not had anything bad and they give you plenty on each plate.
