This takeout-only soul food spot has you covered with delectable dishes like fried chicken, smothered chops, fresh potato salad and buttermilk pie. Check out this hidden gem of homemade meals that rival your gram’s. Ms. Lee’s is a menu-by-day offerings only, so if you find yourself on a day there’s gumbo, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. But the food is only part of the draw: As a star veteran of the city's restaurant community, Ms. Lee is dearly admired on Chicago’s South Side.
