While we were all readying ourselves for the end of the school year, graduations and daydreaming about Memorial Day weekends filled with brew and barbecue, a few new businesses opened their doors this month. Here’s a look at what’s new in Lubbock for the month of May!

Tikka Shack
If you’re craving Indian food in Southwest Lubbock, Tikka Shack is your answer. Their menu is packed full of traditional Indian dishes with a casual flair like Tikka Masala, samosas, naan bread and kabobs. If you’re new in Indian fare, this is the perfect place to give it a try.
Location: 6620 Milwaukee Ave., Suite 100

Remember the good ol’ days of childhood when the living was easy and someone else was in charge of your hair? While the pros at Blo, Lubbock’s newest no-cut, no-color salon can’t do much for your to-do list, they can certainly help you achieve that perfectly polished blow out, Insta-worthy top knot or enviable beachy waves that you’ll want to rock all summer long. View a full list of their services here.
Location: 4511 98th St.

Evie Mae’s
Just the mention of the name “Evie Mae’s” around our office is enough to induce a full-on barbe-craving. We’ve been faithful patrons since Evie Mae’s first began their operations, and now they’ve moved into a brand new building in a brand new location. Stop by for perfectly smoked brisket, green chile sausage, homemade sides and a slice of chocolate pecan pie.
Location: 217 Highway 62, Wolfforth, TX 79382


Saltgrass Steak House
If you’ve visited Canyon West in recent months, you may have been tracking the progress on the highly anticipated Saltgrass Steak House. It’s now open for business and serving up perfectly seasoned steaks with all the fixings.
Location: 6026 Marsha Sharp Fwy.

Royal Indian Cuisine
If you like your Indian food served buffet style, give the recently opened Royal Indian Cuisine a try! One Yelp reviewer compared it to some of his favorite Austin and Dallas/Fort Worth restaurants, and another gave the Chicken Biriyani an 11 out of 10.
Location: 3860 50th St.

Yuyo Japanese Restaurant
While you’re adding restaurants to your must-try list, don’t forget about Yuyo Japanese Restaurant. Yuyo offers an array of Japanese cuisine including sushi rolls, lunch specials and a wide variety of entrees.
Location: 5130 80th St.

Italian Garden
Although Italian Garden has long been one of our Foodie Favorites, they’ve recently moved to their new location in the old Myrick-Green building downtown. Stop by, see their new digs and order up your favorite Italian dish!
Location: 1215 Ave J.

New Locations
6815 Milwaukee Ave.

La Madeleine
8201 Quaker Ave., #118 (Kingsgate Shopping Center)
