I moved away 2yrs ago and came through on a quick visit and it was everything I remembered. Food was the home cook taste I was looking for.

Real down home southern soul food. Everything here is prepared from fresh, not a lot of cans. Like sweet potatoes. Fried chicken. Greens, fried corn. Mouth watering seasoned with butter. Deserts made like grandma ! Honestly! And sweet tea!

Good home cooked food. We were just traveling through the area and came upon this place. No room on the plates after the food was prepared. Everyone's favorite was the dressing.

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.
