The local (started in Columbia, SC) version of 'Choose a meat and 1, 2, or 3 Veg' platters. Country cooking with options such as collard greens, chicken & dumplings, okra, chicken fried steak, country fried steak, etc. Like going to grandma's house. Delicious!

I like this type of food so I enjoyed it. The food is good although not exactly high quality. About what you would expect from a chain like this one.

Food was rather bland... Sausage gravy had no sausage taste; the salmon patty... let me say it is nowhere the same as from the days of old.

Great southern specialties and cuisine. Breakfast is awesome. Lunch has many meat and three choices. Dinner has all the family favorites available along with traditional desserts. Prices are very easy on the wallet and the service is great.

Lizard's Thicket is one of the best places in Lexington to eat period. For all three meals. And for very good food for a very reasonable, inexpensive price

Ate here twice in the time my husband and I stayed in the area and loved the food. Home-styled cooked and prepared, the meat and 3 is always a favorite and the flounder sandwich had the best breading, not heavy, but perfectly balanced and received a huge portion for the sandwich. Broiled flounder was also very delicious as were the... More

The Chicken Salad is a bed of lettuce, carrots, etc. and on the top is cut up fried chicken pieces. It is delicious!! Their salad dressings are also very good. One other favorite of mine is their beef stew. They have all kinds of choices.
