THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Lee's Hamburgers Restaurant Review

: The original, legendary Lee's in the New Orleans Central Business District spawned a number of offspring, with diverse ownerships. Some of the suburban locations are so basic, the tables and chairs become frills, and cheesy describes the d├ęcor more fittingly than the sandwiches. But fans who remember the original come for the slow-fried patties that are still embedded with chopped onions that caramelize as the meat cooks. The beef for these nostalgia bites is still ground daily, and Lee's present-day fans would hardly let a week go by without stopping in for a fix.
