Lizard's Thicket, 402 Beltline Boulevard: July 2014 (Closed Again Again Again)   5 comments

Posted at 11:38 pm in closing



"Rolls or cornbread?"

I snapped these two pictures driving by Lizard's Thicket on Beltline; perhaps I can get some better later. At any rate, the chain is renovating this old Shoney's building, and it will be closed until that is done.

I believe the nearest other Liz is the one on Forest Drive, also in a former Shoney's.

UPDATE 9 April 2019 -- I don't have a picture, but this location has been open again for a good while.

UPDATE 24 July 2020 -- Closed again, due to COVID-19 staffing problems as is the Airport Boulevard location:


UPDATE 10 February 2021 -- Open again, again:


UPDATE 31 January 2022: As mentioned in the comments, closed again for staffing issues.

  1. When this was a Shoney's back in 1973, my parents took us kids there during the big snow storm. It was one of the few places open or that had electricity. We ate in our car at the uh.. under the.. THE PLACE YOU ORDER FOOD FROM YOUR CAR. NO, not a drive thru.
    It was outside where the car hops brought the food to your car.

    On another note, I'm hearing and reading a lot about the new "3-D Printers" that are available now, you've heard of them right? Well I'm wondering if a 3D printer can make ink cartridges for a 2-D printer.

    Also, speaking along that line, I told my Son the other day that I never want to kept alive in a vegetative state, dependent on "Some machine" and "Fluids" from a bottle to keep me going.
    So he unplugged my computer and threw out my bottle of tequila. Damn Kids, what are you gonna do?

  2. Sorry, typo, should have said "I never want to be kept alive"
    That sentence was missing the word "be" before kept alive.

  3. Yesterday's The State had a blurb indicating that this has reopened in the last couple of weeks...

  4. I rode by there this morning and it said they were closed again due to staffing issues.

  5. They have actually been closed for a few months now. I don't have high hopes about a reopening at this point.
