Yer about 20 years too late for the best Q there. Stubb's now has a
shrine and statue to the West Texas Barbeque God at the site of the old
restaurant.
Hit the strip for Pinkie's and Great Scott's if they're still open.
Some folks tout the County Line as LubTex's best..I dunno.
Lubbock is actually more of a good hamburger type of town, and there is
one of the Best IMO Thai restaurants there (Choochai's on 34th)

Long gone I'm afraid. My fave LubMex is still Taco Pueblo at 3rd and R.
Or Pedro's Tamales -also out by the strip.
For Q there is Bigham's which ain't bad for low key local.
The further you go into the southeast side of town the better the Q
gets.

White Pig and CharKing went out in the late 70s. For a while it was a
Der Weinerschnitzel and then a BBQ burrito joint which was wonderful.At
4th and Univ is now a Burger King. Sad. But Tommy's burgers, Pete's
burgers and of course the 3rd incarnation of the Hi-D-Ho are still
rockin on strong. Some outfit called Jumbo Jim's bought out Andrews,
Daves Husky burger and several others.
The best meat in Lubbock is ground

monroe(could use some Tommy's Onion Rings about now)

Marc,

I live in Lubbock and can vouch that there is not very good Q in Lubbock. I
will give you a run down of places that were mentioned by Monroe and Jack
and a few of my favorites.

County Line is very inconsistent with their food. Very good atmosphere and
live music. A guy named Bo Garza plays on the weekends and he is great.

Cagles Steakhouse on west 4th Street serves some of the best steak you can
find. They only serve ribeyes BTW. The steaks are all cut to order. A
must stop.

Like Monroe said Choochai's is very good. If you like Chinese food then you
must go to Gilbert's. Gilbert only serves Chinese on Saturday and you have
to call ahead to make reservations. Another must stop.

If you are a Mexican food fan there are three you need to go.
1. Lujans (Stacey's Plate is highly recommended)
2. Durango's (Owned by one of the original owners of Taco Pueblo and in
a much nicer part of town.)
3. Pedro's (You can't beat tamales fresh out of the steamer)

For Italian food, a must stop is Orlando's. It is Italian food with a
tex-mex spin. Another must stop.

I don't know how long you will be in Lubbock but if you need more
suggestions I will be more than happy to oblige.

bonedaddy (Red Raider 01)- GO TECH BEAT THE AGGIES!!!

BTW if you are going to be here this weekend make sure to go to the Tech
game. There will be plenty of tailgating going on.

You still have to head out to the strip to get any beer. It really sucks
having to go all the way out there to get beer. The Tech games have plenty
of tailgating in the parking lot west of Jones Stadium.
