Welcoming stop off the interstate for a high-value and yummy meal--8-year-old son and I ate "small plate" dinners and desserts for around $13 total.

This place was part of my support when I was in nursing school at Midlands Tech. They knew me by name and always knew what I wanted. I took my family there after my graduation.

We enjoy the down home southern cooking here at Lizards Thicket. The chicken is some of the best in this area. My husband really likes their fried catfish. They have a lot of food to choose from from main entree to sides and then dessert

A good alternative to fast food. Country style food in a diner/family restaurant atmosphere. The staff are friendly with a country twang, and the food is....well country kitchen that's been franchised. The burger I had was good, not bad and not outstanding. At least it...More
