Where to begin the dittos…Ramsey’s, Hall’s on the River, Billy’s, Joe B’s, the Parkette.
My favorite steak is Malone’s on Tates Creek Road north of New Circle Road. Does Columbia still serve “Lamb Fries?”
Loudon Square Buffet is a great choice for fried chicken. Another BBQ option is Old Kentucky Smokehouse on New Circle north of Winchester Road.
And don’t miss Sawyers Bar downtown. Best chili anywhere. My wife loves the taco salads. Main and Broadway. Catacorner to Triangle Park and the Lexington Center / Rupp Arena complex.
