“Triple J Chophouse has an in-house brewery that keeps several rotating craft brews on tap. Their food is excellent, and the service is always top-notch. If you’re looking for a great steak, burger, or chicken fry, this is the place to go. They usually have live music on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s also located directly in the depot if you want to go out and enjoy some of the bars during your stay. ”

“This will require some planning on your part because it's open Wed thru Sat and for lunch. The line will start before 11am... yes, I said a LINE...like out the door. And the only complainers are those who've not yet tasted this beef that is more like candy. You'll thank me later.”

Italian Restaurant

“This is probably the most popular and best Italian place in Lubbock. If you don't mind spicy, I would highly recommend the green chile chicken pasta or the down-n-dirty appetizers. The sausage burger is also amazing!”
