I always make time for an Orlando's stop when I am in Lubbock. Mafia Queso is a must and the Chicken Parm is fabulous. Great atmosphere and prices are moderate. Go eat here!

Great food, friendly staff, comfortable atmosphere, you'll like it. Can't survive in the Lubbock market without a good product at a competitive price.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know of your good experience with us! I'm especially glad you found our place clean, as we try very hard to keep it that way. Our pizza is pretty much responsible for me packing on about 100 pounds the last 37 years I've worked there! lol Come back soon! Loyd L. Turner,... More

Orlando's is a Lubbock staple. been here for a long long time. loyal following, manageable wait times and very good food. you'll find much more than Italian here. we both had the Saturday night special which on our visit was Neapolitan Lasagna. ample portion, loads of cheese, not too much sauce, with a twist.....mushrooms and a very good thinly sliced...

I really like the taste of the food here. It's a little different than most Italian places. It's kind of cozy and wasn't too loud when I was there. Good place for lunch.

Recently while in Lubbock on business I had the opportunity to visit the Orlando's restaurant and was very impressed! Although we had a large group we were seated quickly and the wait staff was very good. We all pretty much had Italian food but one of the group had the hamburger which he raved about. Evidently Orlando's hamburger was rated... More

They use fresh ingredients for their authentic recipes. Very good food and cozy atmosphere. They have at least two locations in Lubbock and have been in business for many years. I like trying older established restaurants because they typically have the best food.

We loved the service, the quality of the food, the variety, and the prices were right. We had the pesto almond pasta.....superb; and the veal parmiggiana delicious. Clean and very nice decorated.

I have been a big fan of Orlando's since the 70s when I was old enough to get my driver's license. They have always served very good and fairly authentic Italian fare and I've always enjoyed eating there. But back in 2011 Texas Monthly magazine published a feature article about Texas' best hamburgers (non-chain restaurant), and Orlando's won the 7th... More
