Lee's Diner is a stainless steel diner on U.S. Route 30 in West York,[1] York County in Pennsylvania.[2] It was famous for its pies which were for many years baked by Theresa Redding.[3] It serves Pennsylvania Dutch food and has cruise nights .[4]

The diner was founded in 1951 by Elmer and Grace Paxton for their son Lee who was returning from military service. They bought a Mountain View prefabricated stainless steel diner (serial # 301) which was fitted to their house, which contains the kitchen.[5][6]

The diner is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.[7]
