Lizards thicket offers a variety of great southern delights. From collard greens to squash casserole to Sunday pot roast. If you want country cooking this is the place to be. Everything is good. Breakfast and lunch! The waitresses are the best in town.

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.

I'm not a huge fan of country cooking, but my husband is a southern man through and through. We eat here two times a month. Service is always good and food is always fresh. My husband loves it! Only complaint is I don't eat pork...More
