We go to Lee's from time to time and rather enjoy it. They have an amazingly large selection of food; burgers, fries, philly cheese steak, homemade soup, pizza and more. The atmosphere is "rustic", the food is good and a good value. I understand they now have live music. Willie lives near by. I wonder if he'll ever show up... More

My friend and I were on a junkin' excursion in Central Texas. She had been to Lee's Almost By The Lake before and wanted to take me for lunch to this "little hole in the wall" place (her words). What a delightful find! I had the homemade chicken salad and she had an absolutely scrumptious grilled cheese. The menu was... More

My husband and I had lunch while visiting lake Travis. The employees were very accommodating and helpful. We got a burger and soup/salad. Everything was very tasty. It was clearly homemade. We enjoyed the laid-back feel and eclectic decor.

I've only been once, and it was okay. It is definitely kind of a good old greasy burger joint without much attempt at something special.

The cheeseburger ia so well seasoned, they kept it simple and it's delicious. I loved it. The chili cheese fries are amazing. The onion rings are tasty. The customer service is great, and it wasn't too long of a wait. Best hole in the wall place I've been to.

They are a group of laid back people who have some of the best food around. Their food is fantastic, the burgers are amazing and they have some of the best fries around. A great place to stop if going to the lake.

Off Hwy 71 NW of Austin at the SW corner of RR2322 and Bee Cave Rd/Old Ferry Road. Inexpensive place where locals grab a burger, pizza, or homemade soup. I would rate it as somewhere between average and very good. The homemade soups were EXCELLENT. . We tried the vegetable beef, and the broccoli chicken pasta soups. The chef salad,... More

This is a Spicewood/Briarcliff/Pace Bend treasure. Great pizza! Great burgers! Greatest Frito's Pie I've ever had. Awesome Staff! James and Judy are wonderful people and John the owner is a great dude. Veggie and gluten-free options. Greek Salad is excellent choice with home made dressing.
