If you're stopping into a burger joint, what you care about is the burgers. Unfortunately, an awful lot of restaurateurs don't seem to understand this principle, and so you get some huge menu with a zillion options and a lot of nonsense about "our legendary macaroni salad." (Did you ever wonder precisely what sort of legends these might be, and... More

If your in newton stop in to lee's if you want a burger. The bacon cheeseburger is pretty feeling. The fries aren't the greatest but the "special " sauce is worth the trip. Not a lot of room for sitting so optimal to take out.

This is a reasonably priced local burger place. It isn't glamorous, but the food is generally very good and it is usually very fast. One complaint is that I am not a fan of their fries - they are uninteresting and bland in my opinion.

Juicy, hot and delicious burgers. HOT crispy fries. Really nice workers. They were so accommodating. I wanted protein style burger, no buns, lettuce instead. They made it perfectly and put extra napkins under my burger to catch all the juice. So good. Highly recommend this place. Large portions. Fries should be shared too tempting to finish by yourself. It was... More

The place is always full at lunch and dinner. You can see people parked outside that are picking up their food to enjoy it at home. It is a small place but their food is above average. The burgers are cooked to the temperature you ask for. And they are generous with toppings and sauces. Their special sauce is out... More

We recently discovered Lee's, and promptly returned two more times within 10 days. This is a friendly, well run, delicious burger spot (mostly for take out, as seating is limited) right in Newton Center. Lee's is perfect for a quick order to go while on your way home. We have only tried the cheeseburgers and fries, which were both outstanding.

Lee's Burger Place is awesome. The burgers are cooked exactly how you asked them to be. The French Fries and the "special" sauce are to die for. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Lee's is the place to go when you want the best hambuger.
