Original Christo's has been a staple of the Lexington, NC, food scene since 1983, and they're still the best family restaurant around. The great eats and friendly atmosphere have made it a popular choice for locals and tourists alike. Just check out their menu and you'll see that there's a little something for everyone. They might be best known for their unbelievable wings and freshly baked pizza, but Original Christo's also offers a great menu of fully loaded sub sandwiches, classic Italian pasta dishes, burgers, and a full salad bar with all the fixings. The family restaurant also has lots of fun appetizers like mac and cheese bites, potato skins, and, of course, stuffed jalapeño poppers with cheese! There's also a date-worthy dinner menu and an affordable kid's menu, so no matter what the occasion is or who you're with, you can count on Original Christo's to have something everyone will love!
