My wife suggested this place because of rumors of greatness from her co-workers. We gathered my eldest and her boyfriend and trotted in to give it a fair try. It's small, perhaps cozy, but very clean and charming. The prices were very reasonable and the...More

Great place for college kids on a budget to get a good Mexican food fix on the cheap! We fed a family of 5 for under $50 which is hard to do anymore !

We enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and friendly people at Picantes. Authentic TexMex food without being too spicy or overly rich. Great flavors. Unique cuisine unlike the chain Mexican restaurants. We will return frequently.

The breakfast enchiladas are one of the best dishes in Lubbock. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. If you are adventurous try the menudo. It will warm your soul. Family run restaurant that isn't perfect, but they have passion and aim to please.

In some cities, this would be a 4, but in Lubbock with so many options for Mexican food, I'm just going to give it a 3. I went with two co-workers, one of whom is of Mexican descent, and all three of us left with...More
