Restaurant Report Card: Lee & Eddie’s BBQ

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – “They can see it and smell it and all they have to do is come in and order it,” said Lee & Eddie’s owner Damon Allen.

The window’s filled with barbecue and the store is filled with bicycles.

“A man said do what you know, and these are the two things I know,” said Allen.”So bicycles and barbecue.”

But first, here are a couple of restaurants that need to step it up this week.

The Rookery on Cherry Street scored a 77. It had raw chicken stored over vegetables and mushrooms, raw steak stored over sliced cheese, and some food wasn’t cold enough in the fridge.

Teriyaki House also scored a 77. An employee didn’t wash their hands to prepare food after they touched the cash register, they had expired eggs in the fridge, and the freezer needed some cleaning.

Other scores this week:

Bombay City Indian Restaurant on Bloomfield Village Dr. – 87

Doughboy Pizza on Cherry Street – 93

Fish & Pig on Mosley Dixon Road – 92

Fish ‘N More on Hillcrest Drive – 94

Fountain of Juice on Montpelier Avenue – 91

Hot Wings Plus on Pio Nono – 95

Lemongrass on Cherry Street – 91

Polly’s Lamesa on Pio Nono – 97

Silly’s Lilly Restaurant on Pittman St. – 97

Great scores this week.

“All our food is rotisserie cooked fresh everyday,” said Allen.

Whether you love bikes or barbecue,

“The chicken sandwiches are so tender, at least we hope they are, they’re served with the bone in the sandwich, what we call bone in,” said Allen.

Lee and Eddies on Second Street in Macon is your place. When you stop to have your bike tuned up, have a bite to eat.

Owner Damon Allen’s parents had a restaurant too.

“I’m sure they’re up in heaven laughing at me,” said Allen.

He’s just putting two and two together to add to his bike shop business.

“Bikes are what I’ve always loved, I ride just about every single day,” said Allen.

Adding a restaurant makes sense.

“With a restaurant you have people coming in getting full meals spending money, they eat their dinner they leave and then someone else comes in. It’s called turning the tables,” said Allen.

They’re turning a perfect health inspection score as well.

“Our operation is very simple and straight forward, it’s just a matter of keeping it all clean, keeping it wiped down, and keeping it fresh,” said Allen.

Lee and Eddie’s is making the grade this week.
