Lubbock is known for its Mexican food, and yet folks argue incessantly over which restaurant offers the best of this important cuisine. For my buck, it's Picantes. The place is short on atmosphere. It doesn't offer margaritas. The food is served almost a bit too...More

Awesome restaurant with takeout or sitdown. Two of us had breakfast meals and another had the mole. Everyone was super happy and this place kept us full through 5 hours of driving! If you have a minute in Lubbock, try it.
