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.

Have had eaten many times here and have always been pleased with food. They always have something different and they give lots of food.

Had difficulty at first locating as the GPS took me downtown based on the given address. The location is actually just off the I-65 exit going towards the Beltline. Service was really good, staff is super friendly. Many choices from the cafeteria style buffet, unfortunately...More

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.

I have a hard finding anything but burgers and chicken when I am on the road. Minnie Lee's is major exception to that rule. They feature meat and veggies in a southern/soulfood tradition. They are located just off the I-65 Decatur/Priceville exit at mile marker...More

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.
