Lubbock food recs

Recommended Posts

A guy and gal I know from Fort Worth own West Table, I have never been but heard great things.  It is pretty high end though.

West Table probably the best in town --sometimes difficult to get in. There is an attached brewpub that is decent. You can sit in the brewpup and order West Table apps if you want.

Double Nickel steak house is good. Classic feel. 

Las Brisas on the southside of town is generally good. Steaks, seafood and some fusion Mexican. The location is fairly nice. I like to sit on the patio--you get there through the bar.

Cocina Del Serena is one of my new favorites. Kinda a mix between Mexican and tapas. I had smoked quail enchiladas there a few months ago. Excellent. 

Evie Mae's and the Shack are both good for Q. Line is less long at The Shack. The Shack is also a decent place to drink beer on a Friday afternoon (if it is open).

Stellas is decent Italian, steak, seafood. Wish it weren't on 50th street. 

The Crafthouse Gastropub is good and has good beers on tap.

Down by campus for cheap, greasy eats, Spanky's is great. Get the fried cheese.

More college crowd places are: Chimy's and Crickets. Crickets gets too smokey. Bier Haus is ok. 

Newish brewpub Two Doc's. Kinda neat location. Usually food trucks there.

None of the Mexican places in town are remarkable. Montelangos probably the best but a little divey. 

I'm glad to answer any other Lubbock questions. Been here too long.

I can recall when Stubb's was located in Lubbock.  Spent the night a couple weeks ago and had a CFS at Lytle's--and it was pretty dam good--bettr than Hoover's.

Cast Iron Grill has a good lunch and decent chicken fried. Had a CFS at Caprock a few weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty good as well.

Agree on the gastropub. He does a good job with the menu and finding beers that aren’t readily available everywhere.

 

Why u no like Orlandos?

Good cue, but a little bit of a drive, depending on St A’s itenerary.

I almost put Orlandos on my list... I like it fine but seldom eat there unless my youngest daughter who really likes it demands we go. The truth is that I am just not big on Italian so I am not sure I would know good from mediocre. What I have had there is fine--and they have a cheeseburger that is actually pretty dang good. In fact, I think some mags had it rated as one of the best in Texas at one time. 

Just looked and yep:  https://www.southernliving.com/travel/texas/orlandos-italian-restaurant

I don't think its Stella's anymore. Parma Ristorante Itliano

Stella's is moving.

The owner of Stella's, however, expects to reopen the business at a new location in the beginning of next year. That location has not yet been announced.

I heard he is relocating Stellas to the Brazilian steakhouse building down near Double Daves close to 82nd and Frankford.

Off topic but I remember Ely and other guys brought Stubb’s to Austin. Went to that run down hotel that he was cooking at and the Lubbock guys played a show there on Sunday afternoon. Good times.
