One of our normal stops on the dinning out scene in Lubbock. ICE cold draft schooner's stand ready to cool you off after the Mafia Queso warms you up. Never had a bad time at Orlando's on Indiana and the Loop.

If Mexican food has Tex-Mex then Orlando's is the equivalent and thus Tex-Italian! It's all delicious!!More

we sat at the bar to wait for a table. Bar drinks are expensive. And they have a whole load of draft beer, but no decent beers amongst them. At the table, the menu is not appealing. Too many choices of build-your-own dishes. We didn't...More

I am sorry for your poor experience. As you can see from most of the other reviews, that is not our usual level of service, and for that I apologize.

The service was good, the staff was attentive and checked on us regularly. Will return as soon as were back in Lubbock!
