Ft. Wayne on State

Since 1966, Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken has been cooking up legendary flavor. Our famous recipe chicken is never frozen. It’s hand-breaded, honey-dipped and pressure-cooked to make it the best tasting chicken around. And we do it all at prices that are as famous as our food!

Lee’s Famous Recipe has been serving Fort Wayne since 1973, when Jim Tellman bought a franchise and opened the store at East State and Hobson. The Fort Wayne locations are still owned and operated by the Tellman family since Jim passed away in 1983. We pride ourselves in giving Fort Wayne outstanding hospitality and great food at a great value. Many of our employees have been with us for several years and we intend to keep and hire high quality people to insure our values are passed on to our guests. One area we excel in is catering and offer services for any size group. We strive to make sure your party or event is catered with you in mind. Stop in at any of our 4 convenient locations and check out our daily specials!
