Unsung Eats: Lee’s Dynasty
Szechuan Chicken

Maybe today you don’t feel like cooking. Maybe today you don’t have the time to stop at the grocery store and go home and drag out the pots and pans because your entire day has been mired in chaos.  The answer then is to go out to eat or order take out but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to break the bank and there are so many options to explore for great grub cheap in northern Berkshire County if you know all the hotspots.

Today I had lunch at Lee’s Dynasty in Adams.  There was plenty of off street parking and once inside, the atmosphere was clean and pleasant with about ten dining tables and a pickup counter.  My server’s name was Cindy and right off the bat I was brought a complimentary small dish of fried snacks with a sweet dipping sauce.  I chose the Szechuan Chicken with fried rice and egg roll from the Luncheon Specials with a Coke.

My meal arrived soon enough, steaming hot as if directly from the pan moments ago.  The Szechuan spices were right on with their heat and the chicken was sliced thin and juicy. The vegetables were fresh and cooked until tender but with a bright snap.  The red and green bell pepper, snow peas, baby corn, carrots, zucchini and broccoli rounded out the medley.  I was also impressed with the crunchy egg roll and the full flavor of the rice.

I was treated to a full dining experience with fresh and delicious food today at Lee’s Dynasty in Adams for the total sum of $9.18.  Their entire menu is also available for takeout and I can highly recommend that the next time you don’t feel like cooking, and Burger King just isn’t going to cut it, treat yourself to some great grub cheap and give Lee’s Dynasty a call at 413-743-3333 or order online at

This foodie is hard to please and I was quite impressed.
