Lubbock is the original home of Mexican food chain Don Pablo’s, but the local cuisine is a little bit of everything, from Asian to seafood to traditional American. Of course, expect some fine barbeque and, no matter what the type of cuisine, hearty portions.
Since it is the home of Buddy Holly, the rock/country hybrid reigns in Lubbock. The Depot District is Lubbock’s entertainment strip and the restaurants, as well as the off pure music club, often host live music at night. Some famous musicians still play here and even when the bands are local and maybe a little raw with enthusiasm, it’s all informed by that prestigious musical heritage.
