Looks like the Lizard's Thicket remodeling effort that has revamped several of their stores is continuing. This one is at the corner of Knox Abbott Drive & State Street, and was some sort of restaurant before, though not a Shoney's like the Forest Drive and Beltline locations. I've eaten there before, and don't recall any particular building issues, but I guess everything has its time.

  1. This one has started to look a bit dated. I like it, but the service is very hit or miss.

  2. This location was originally a Grandy's, like the other Lizard's Thicket location on Broad River Rd near Dutch Square.

  3. I remember it being a Duff's back in the late '70's/early '80's. (fuzzy child memories) Cool to see it being updated instead of being demolished.

  4. I don't remember it myself, but some people have said Duff's was in the old Softek building on Parkland Plaza

  5. ted - you are correct about that location at Parkland being a Duff's. I think there were a few scattered around town in it's heyday.

    I was pretty young but it was a memorable restaurant. All you can eat and the bar revolved, so you just had to stand in one place and the food would come to you. A plus side to this was that the food line revolved back into the kitchen, so they could fill up food containers before it came back out.
