This week, indulge in a local favorite and treat yourself to a new lunch option that will soon become a regular in your lineup of “Hub City” fare.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere! At Burklee Hill Vineyards, located in the historic Kress Building in downtown Lubbock, exceptional wine pairs seamlessly with both the bistro’s light bites and heavier delicacies. Whether you prefer a Caesar salad with grilled chicken, savory panini or house-made pizzettes, this is the ideal location for a business meeting or afternoon with the ladies. We recommend ordering the charcuterie as a sharable. You can thank us later!
On South Loop 289 and Slide Road, Fun Noodle Bar brings authentic Asian cuisine to the “Hub City.” As guests enter the restaurant, the open kitchen concept allows for dumpling connoisseurs to marvel in the art of intricately shaping the dumpling. Other menu items include your choice of fried noodle dishes, noodle soup, pot stickers, bao and more! Trust us when we say the dipping sauce will leave you thinking about your next visit. Stop by this hidden gem every day beginning at 11 a.m.!
At The Crafthouse Gastropub, delicious eats meet a culture of soccer fanatics and tasty drinks. Upon arrival, this family owned eatery’s mission to foster a comfortable and inviting community feeling is instantly met with high-quality food and a unique to Lubbock experience. This is a great option for anyone who is looking to indulge in local brews and show off the culinary scene Lubbock has to offer. We know it’s hard to choose just one item on Crafthouse’s diverse menu, which is why we recommend the Texas Burger. With Akaushi beef, shiner bock mustard, caramelized onions and aged cheddar, this is a Texas-sized burger through and through.
Looking for authentic street tacos, burritos and mouth watering queso? Look no further than Taqueria Jalisco! Located on Avenue Q, each menu item is created with a genuine Mexican feel, providing guests with a taste of culture in every bite. From the steam from the fajita plate and extra kick of spice in every menu item to the radiant energy from the staff, Taqueria Jalisco will be at the top of your list for lunch hot spots in the “Hub City!”
A long-time favorite, Orlando’s has two locations on both Avenue Q and 24th Street as well as Indiana Avenue and 70th Street. As Lubbock’s oldest full-service restaurant, Orlando’s continues to serve top-tier drinks for those who enjoy an extra kick to their afternoon, as well as an innovative menu with “Tex-Italian” dishes like Green Chile Chicken Linguine and the popular starter, Orlando’s Mafia Queso, which is served with tortilla chips and garlic bread. We are drooling just thinking about it.
