Salad Bar is great

Christo's Original has a very good pizza lunch buffet. The salad bar is the best in town. They make their own dressings, and the blue cheese is out of this world! I like the historic building' it's in the old Coca-Cola plant. The bar upstairs is very attractive, and there is room for a large... read more

Christo's wings with the medium sauce are about the best in the area. Crispy on the outside the ample meat on the inside; prices only average. For Lexington North Carolina, their Pizza is one of the best as well.

Came in for an early lunch. food a good. Wait staff was too eager for a conversation and often budded in on the meeting. Food was super greasy.

Met my cousin here for lunch. First time coming here, her suggestion. Good family restaurant with an upstairs area that houses a bar area. Something to please everyone. Wait staff friendly and prompt, very helpful with suggestions. They have a pizza buffet that includes salads and pastas. I ate a stromboli and had potato skins-which were very good. My cousin...

Buffet has a large variety of pizzas. In addition, they offer a well stocked salad bar. Their dessert pizzas are tasty too. Pasta is included in the buffet. So whatever your flavor you're sure to be satisfied. The staff are friendly and it's always busy. The wings, potatoe skins and chicken are also good options if you don't want pizza.

Good pizza and stromboli's, the buffet is mediocre and the pasta is ok but you can't beat the pizza especially for Lexington.

We normally visit the bar/lounge upstairs. There are TV's to watch the games or if you prefer,the seating is conducive to having conversations. One of our favorite Lexington hangouts! The service is always fast, professional, and courteous. The food is great tasting and served promptly....

The food here is great and the price can't be beat anywhere. For six bucks you can get a sub sandwich or gyro. The buffet is a little known secret. And did I mention the dessert pizza? Chocolate and cherry. To die for. A must
