Danville

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!

Newton Foods, Inc. is locally owned and operated by J. Paul and Carlene Newton. Being one of Danville’s oldest restaurants, Lee’s was built in 1972 by J. Paul ‘s brother, Dorris Newton. Both worked side by side from 1971 through 1985. In the early 1980’s, J. Paul was general manager of 34 stores consisting of Lee’s, Mr. Gatti’s Pizza, and Captain D’s. J. Paul purchased the Danville Lee’s in 1985. Since then, the Newton’s have twice received the chain’s highest award, Lee’s Operator of the Year. Great service, friendly hospitality, outstanding products, and cleanliness keeps the Lee’s in Danville a top tier dining experience.
