MenuLizard is going away soon!
We had a good run but we never figured out how to convince restaurant owners to send us their menus en masse.
We started this site in 2005. Back then, most restaurants did not have their own websites, so a central repository for menus was a very useful idea.
But now, everyone has their own website. And nobody ever sends us their menus anymore. The average menu age on MenuLizard is almost 14 years old! We will keep the site up for a little while longer, but at some point soon, we are going to pull the plug.
Thanks for using the site! It was fun making it, and we really wish it had become successful and popular. But alas, it was not meant to be!
