SOUL FOOD MN | Barbeque
Lee's & Dee's
Express: From the back of a station wagon to a St. Paul institutionthe Summit-University neighborhood 22 years ago and, it has become a popular spot for people in search of authentic southern food.
While visiting the restaurant during the lunch hour, before the busier dinner rush started, I looked over the whiteboard menu and landed on some dishes I knew I had to try. While the restaurant is known for its barbeque, Lee's & Dee's dishes are definitely soulful. When I asked owner Linda Williams what her definition of soul food was, she replied, greens, pinto beans, and cornbread—in other words, Southern food.
