Looking for sanctuary on these hot summer days? With temperatures surpassing 100 degrees, time outside is limited unless there is some way to cool off. We’ve got the inside look on the “COOLest” places in the “Hub City.”

Bahama Buck’s

The only place where it’s acceptable to eat yellow snow? Bahama Buck’s.

Flavor your life at a Lubbock original! With over 93 unique flavors and 100 stores across the country. Bahama Buck’s has quickly become a local favorite. The owner, Blake Buchanan, started selling snow cones in the hot summer of 1990 while attending Texas Tech University, no wonder they have a flavor called the “Red Raider.” In addition to snow cones, they serve smoothies, fruit cups, coffee and specialty sodas called, “Bahama Sodas.” Stop by any of their four locations in Lubbock because there’s “snow” place like Bahama Buck’s.

Consider yourself a “dessert connoisseur?” You’re in the right place! For 15 years, J’s Creamery has been serving “premium desserts, premium experience and premium reputation!” Formerly known as Sheridan’s, this Lubbock hot, or should we say “cold,” spot underwent a name change as a celebration of all of the years they’ve been a part of the Lubbock community; thus, naming it J’s Creamery with the “J” standing for jubilee made most sense. Not only can you get a serving of classic custard, but they also offer a free “puppy cone” for your furry friend. J’s also offers specialty treats for a limited time, including Nutella-butter Crunch Concrete and the Loaded Red Velvet Cake Concrete. Stop by J’s Creamery and try their all-natural frozen custard, made fresh daily!
