Our kids love coming here on hot summer day. Their shaved ice is the bomb. I love the pink lemonade . My kids all love the dark cherry. Good service and friendly faces. Very small inside but a nice outside patio. Too bad Lubbock doesn't have good views that's all it's missing!

I will never eat another snow cone again! I have loved Bahama Bucks since they first started out but love them even more with their thin ice varieties especially the super sour flavors! No carbs, no sugar, no fat, no calories! Just great flavors! They also have fresh fruit with whip cream and chocolate syrup and come fantastic smoothies. I... More

Grew up out west. Living in the East now. Haven't ever experienced shaved ice like this before. Nice building, very busy. Friendly service. Fun, bright decorated interior. Seems like endless options to chose from. Highly recommend the Bahama Mama that's blends ice cream and Shaved ice. Yum!

Stopped by the other night to satisfy a snow cone craving. The flavors range from everything you could possibly want: strawberry, pina colada, blue raspberry coconut, tiger's blood etc. They also have sugar free options!

I had my first shave ice ever in Hawaii. It was MANY years later before I ever found one that was even CLOSE! But once I had a shave ice from Bahama Buck's, I never wanted one from any place else! LOTS of choices of flavors & sizes (can even have ice cream on the bottom!) & also good fruit... More

Yummy!!!! One of my absolute favorite places on Lubbock! So many flavored to choose from! Recommendation: if you want a medium, ask them to put it in a large cup! The snow cone pile tends to break off easily, staining your clothes. By getting the larger cup, it's flat, so less chance of ransom pieces falling!

What's not to like about this place. Other than having to wait in line for a while, it is worth going. Excellent result after a while. Plenty of options/choices for your refreshment. Treat yourself to a refreshing little "snow cone"!

Stopped in for a cool treat and was greeted by a large selection of shaved ice options. Kids enjoyed their frozen coffee and smoothies. They missed out on the excellent shaved ice treat. We'll be back next time,through Lubbock.

As a diabetic, there aren't a lot of places offering sugar free/no sugar added dessert options, so having somewhere I can go and have multiple SF choices is fantastic. There are a few flavors with an overpowering artificial sweetener/bitter taste but most are delicious. They even offer NSA vanilla ice cream for Bahama Rama Mama of any flavor. My husband... More
