I'll be the lone contrarian.
While I love Sabals - of nearly every kind - Sabal 'Lisa' doesn't do anything for me. The leaves look deformed (on every one I've ever seen).
It was probably one of Nature's genetic mistakes. And like many of these things in the plant world, it's widely embraced. I get it. People like "different."
Just give me a plain old smooth, thick trunked coastal Georgia Palmetto and I'll be happy.
