Winking Lizard Avon to Relocate




In the Fall, the Winking Lizard at 32045 Detroit Rd. will relocate to a new address in Avon. This upgraded Lizard will be a newly constructed restaurant situated next to the popular Avon Commons Shopping Center.

"We need a new facility to accommodate our guests and staff better. We love the existing patio at the Avon location, but with all the floors and the bar being the smallest area in the restaurant, it is time to move" explains co-owner John Lane.

Lane also ensures there will be zero interruption in operations from the closing of the Avon unit to the launch of the new locale.

Also in the works for this Spring: a cigar patio that will be added to the recently opened Lizardville in Lakewood.
